Obsessed or possessed or just easily distracted!

"SPRUNG !"

Anyone care to guess what I did with the rest of my weekend? Is it green enough? I am still thinking about some kind of border. And the quilting is stumping me. Maybe stitch in the ditch? Ok, all you long-arm quilting divas out there - what would you suggest? You can click on the picture to get a better view of the fabrics.

This morning I finished getting the rows together. When I got it all together, I discovered that I like it sideways better. When I was laying it out, I had the longest curves going up and down, but I like them better horizontal.

Then when I was cropping the picture in photoshop, I started playing with the different filters. I like the look with the more dramatic colors!

I like the idea of playing with photoshop to try different looks, and making a quilt using those tones.

See, I told you it was easy!

I'd be SOOOO tempted to applique/add a few bright flowers on top of that green.

... or a dark green frog with red eyes and hands... and a long swirly frog-tongue zapping out to get a fly on the opposite corner. :)

This was quick. It looks very nice. A nice dark green border would look good but thats my thought. I also like the thought of applique flowers. I know you will post final picture. Good work.

For a border, I think something with black and white . . maybe a wavy stripe?? Then maybe another lime border or maybe just lime binding.

See if you can see the quilting I did in this picture: http://community.webshots.com/photo/251017383/1440490598033860431VYbKfZ

That would work, huh? King Tut (Superior) has a great lime/yellow variegated thread.

I love it! The green is so striking! And what fun you had with photoshop. I will have to give that a try.

Dawn said...

Well I love green, so I think it looks great! I have absolutely no ideas for quilting designs, but I do love the quilt!

Caroline said...

I like it the way it is, but if you want that dramatic photo shop look, how about some fabric paint?

I think I like Judy;s idea of a black/white border, wild wacky wavey stripes? That would work well, I think because of your enhanced views in photoshop. Isn't it fun to play with that for ideas?

this looks awesome I love the landscape feel of it!!

Wowzee, wowzee, wowzee, that is one gorgeous quilt!

Sandra said...

Ooh, like limes, makes your mouth water! Great quilt :-)

Judy said...

Aren't those curves easy and fun? I love the colors of this...lime is one of my favorites.

Did you use the method of putting both pieces face up then cutting with a new blade along the strip? That's how I cut mine like that and it's so fun and easy!

Great quilt!

I am truly loving this lime green quilt! I have a pile of yellows/oranges/pinks that had been waiting for inspiration, and I think they just got it! Lovely!!

Wow! How artistic - great job! How about swirling leaves and the wind for a quilting design? It looks so much like a forest to me. It has been fun reading everyone's ideas.

Cheers!

Ooh! I love your green-enough quilt!

I can see just waves of movement for the quilting...or swirls and curly Q's...or perhaps freemotion flowers using pink and yellow and orange threads?

Whatever you decide, Sarah...I know it will be fabulous!
