I finished my Wayward Transparency quilt top on Monday evening and snapped this photo on Tuesday morning before I went to work. Tuesday was my favourite kind of winter day, very cold but sunny with a backdrop of snow. It's snowing again today but it's supposed to warm up so it might all melt or turn to rain. Yuck!
I joined the Wayward Transparency QAL because I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to learn more about transparency quilts and how to pick and place the colours. I was tempted to pick one of Yvonne's colour options but then I remembered my intention for this QAL and decided to pick my own colours with my Kona Colour Chart. I was somewhat restricted in my choices because I wanted to get my fabric from a Canadian source. In the end I bought some of my fabric from Fabric Spot (just before they closed shop) and some of my fabric from Mad About Patchwork.
I chose an orange yellow colour way. The colours from lightest to darkest are Kona Papaya, Kona Kumquat, and Kona Cocoa. I named the quilt Tropical Smoothie because of the delicious sounding names of the colours. Having eaten my first Kumquat recently, I'm not too sure what this combination would taste like. Those are Kumquats in the photo above and they actually look closer to the colour called Papaya by Kona. I have heard that there are lots of different types of kumquats however, so maybe some of them are closer to that middle colour.
It's a really beautiful quilt and I'm happy with it but I'm not sure if the transparency aspect is working. I'll have to see how it looks when I quilt it. Thanks Yvonne for another fun and stress free quilt along! Linking with the Wayward Transparency QAL linkup, the OMG linkup and Lets Bee Social linkup.
