Welcome to my stop on the 'Opposites' Hop and thank you to Marian @ Seams to Be Sew for organizing. This has been a while in the making and when it was first put out as a possible hop it was also when our Quilt Guild issued their Challenge.
Yes, a Paint Chip Challenge with two colors to encourage members to also participate in the Empire Quilt Fest show - theme "Two by Two". Fate? Since I knew I would use this challenge for the Opposites Hop, I entered another quilt in the show because I didn't want to share my Opposites project by mistake with show photo's.
Now I got two paint chip colors I don't have a lot of in my stash or use a lot. Yellow gets added in bits for some pop and purple - luckily is my SILs favorite color. So I dug into my scraps and her scraps to find 'May Tulip Yellow' and 'Violet Illusion'. As I was planning my piece, the suggestions for the hop 'protocol' kept changing - I kept to my challenge piece.
I've always have wanted to make the 'Twirl' (or twist or wrap depending on who's pattern you see on the internet).
And if I twirl it, the yellow photo'ed better. The purple is textured and the yellow has tiny dots. The black and white are left over Kona strips from another project.
The backis the same as the binding and came out of the scrap bin. All fabrics used up. Well enough scrap to make one of my little dolls to go with this mini.
A mini project that made me use a combo of color I wouldn't normally do and two challenges met with one piece.
And some help, too. Although not really - she grabbed the doll and ran off with it.
