Does anything look different?
Maybe from this angle?
Does this give you a better idea, or . . .
were you focused on the hidden peppers?
Maybe you thought I was talking about how some of the eggplant plants have gotten nearly as tall as the tomatoes!
Nope. What I was referring to were three nearly hidden herb pots I had to move from their previous location so they could get some much needed sunlight.
I'm not quite sure what Kristen at Twinkle, Twinkle has in mind for her wrap up, but I thought I would show the pieces I made over the previous six weeks of the Summer of Color.
As an update. here's my Summer of Color badge. I couldn't be more proud.
The Summer of Color began with Rainbow Sherbet. Bits of orange, raspberry, pineapple, and lemon were represented in this ice cream, and in my first entry, a quiltlet I created using a technique where I stacked four pieces of fabric hearts, then cut out bits from each of the colors.
This is page 4 of a four page spread for a scrappy journal I created for week two. The colors and ice cream were chocolate chip mint. Both the colors and the ice cream are lots of fun.
Baseball Nut was the flavor for week three. The colors were black raspberry and cashew. The best I could do was create a monoprinted quiltlet using three colors of paint. I even tried to sew around the monoprinted hearts I made from a waxed paper mask.
Week four gave us Strawberry Lemonade Punch. For those colors, I created one of my wooden blocks, this time with a transfer over three coats of yellow paint.
I admit it. Wild N' Reckless Sherbet was my favorite color combination. Maybe because I was in the mood for some lavender, green, and blue after working with so many warm colors, or maybe because I am drawn to these colors. I'm not sure which. But it was love at first sight when I created this hand dyed quiltlet fabric and its hand dyed lace.
The final color was Watermelon Ice, where I hand dyed the fabric and lace, then used a Xylene blender pen and a toner copied book page to denote the black seeds.
I hope you enjoyed this trip down (recent) memory lane. I had a lot of fun with this challenge, it was just the right length of time, and I look forward to doing it again next year. If you want to see how I made each of these projects, please go to Previous Collaborations for each week's entry.
