Paint Drips


Paint drips in all its glory hanging on the fence. You can read about the making process here. It started as part of Quilter's Mixology SAL.


The process of picking up fabrics was not easy. I had few other options on mind but as usual I was driven towards rainbow. I have no purple linen in my stash so I had to omit that and yellow is my least fav that is why I gave it the skinny strip only :) That is also the reason why pink got to play small part. The only thing that makes me little uncomfortable is that contrast in blue section.


If you look closely you can find a touch of purple at right top corner. I had to put some in there so part of binding it is. Talk about OCD.


All the credit for this fab quilting goes to my friend Monika. She was the one who quilted Summertime Sadness but this time I get to keep it. To me it's great source of inspiration and motivation to keep on trying FMQ.


The hanging sleeve and corners are made out of non fusible interfacing which I ordered wrongly and it works just fine for this kind of job. You may notice I put the corners at the bottom as well. In my opinion the added weight of stick makes the piece even more flat and pretty :)


The fun part of naming quilts by song titles is here. This one is called Chandelier (by Sia). My current fav song and I don't want to explain more. Pun intended :)

I'll be linking up with ALYoF as to finish this quilt was my October goal. I'm also adding it into Quilter's Mixology linky, TGIFF and Crazy mom quilts.

  4. I love the photographs against the stone - it really helps make that splash of purple in the border pop! Great creative use for interfacing. The weight of a stick at the bottom does make this hang nice and flat. :)

  11. Great idea for the stick in the bottom! i've noticed quilts go wavy there when I've hung them up for photos so that would help!

    Paint can dry in a slightly different colour to what it looks wet, so maybe the different blues are just a wet second coat over the dry first coat of paint ;)

  17. It's all about COLOR for me, Vera
    Your yellow is just the right width so it does not over-power the quilt top.

    Weighting the bottom provides the professional touch.

    A wonderful piece of Art‼️

  20. Beautiful! I love that you've left some colours out of your rainbow and only given a skinny strip to yellow. And the quilting is amazing, just perfect for all that negative space!

  21. I love it all, Vera. Smaller areas of pink and yellow (we feel the same about those colors!) The bit of purple in the binding, and of course the quilting! The whole thing is spectacular. Well done...again!

  29. I Love the OCD purple in the corner and how not all the colors cover the same amount of space. Just a little bit of yellow was perfect. :)
