This week Sunbonnet Sue takes a ride on the color challenge side. I love the looks of a black and white quilt when you throw in 1 color to really make it pop. Lime green, is that enough of a pop for you? :-) I am guessing that the original Sunbonnet Sue designer probably didn't have that in mind when she/he drew up this design. But what can I say, it's a thank you gift for the person who gave me the die, and lime green is her favorite color.
As you can see, when you place it just right on the die, you get a perfect petal. Next time around I might make my strips 1 1/4" wide. That way I can get an additional petal of the fabrics on each side of it.
Now as I am putting the petals down, I see this interesting design start to form, which lead to more playing.
Kind of reminds you of the Cathedral Windows or wedding ring doesn't it? And all from 1 petal of the daisy leaf die. Hummm who would have though! Stay tuned for the continuing saga of "I love my GO Baby...
PSSST: I almost forgot. There is going to be a great surprise, right here in the MooseStash from the folks at GO real soon!
OH MY! I'm SOOOO Jealous... Green with Envy! LOL, isn't that one of the 7 deadly sins!ReplyDelete
I'm so glad you love your Go! it makes me REALLY want to go out and get one. At this time though, funds are low trying to get both kids registered for college!
Great job. I love the black and white. The green makes it all pop.ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see where you GO next.:) I just couldn't resist.
Ingenious use of your die! I love the way you made the wedding ringis look. It's really great!ReplyDelete
Love your little Sues! I have the regular Go. I am said to say I have only used it a couple of times...But I do have plans!ReplyDelete
Clever! A 2quilt-in-one die possibility...ReplyDelete
Your Sunbonnet Sue wall hanging is just adorable! The black and white is perfect with the green to set it off. I like the 2 colors used on your Accuquilt Go die! Looks like you are really having fun!ReplyDelete
Love how you've done this, very creative !!ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see where you 'Go' with the purples.
Sue looks great sporting her new colors!ReplyDelete
Oh. Your Sunbonnet Sue is adorable. I've been wondering whether to get the die for my Go and now I know that I absolutely will! Yours is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
I love watching you play with this! Keep sharing all those wonderful ideas that you have. The SBS is lovely but your idea with the petals is the best. And I love the way that so many great discoveries are almost accidental.ReplyDelete
Was there room in the Quilt car proto-type for a Go!???
I do enjoy seeing what mischief you are up to!
Convinced me too to go buy the Sunbonnet Go dies. Absolutely stunning!ReplyDelete
So very sweet!!ReplyDelete
This is so so cute! What a great idea for this design. I have already dropped some 'not-so-subtle' hints to my DH that I want a Go! for Christmas. :DReplyDelete
I would never have thought to put lime green with this, but it IS awesome, isn't it??? You done good, girl! I am so impressed.ReplyDelete
oh unreal,so pretty your choice of fabrics and how clever is that go machineReplyDelete
That is SO pretty - and different than any other Sunbonnet Sue quilt I've seen out there. I love it! :-)ReplyDelete
The idea of fusing two fabrics side-by-side is really creative! I have never used a GO! cutter, but I love looking at them and dreaming of the things I could do. I agree, the winter themed dies look very interesting. Have you got a lot of projects planned out for them already?ReplyDelete
