100% Organic Cotton Fabrics
For home sewers, businesses, retailers, and anyone who gives a scrap!
This is the 15th year that the Pacific Piecemakers Quilt Guild (PPQG) has challenged its members to create quilts around a common theme. The theme this year is "Rhapsody in Hue." The show is up through May 1st at the Gualala Arts Center in Gualala, CA. There are currently 86 quilts on display!
This is my entry titled: Hue Knew. It would not have been possible without the assistance, support and collaboration of Jen Madsen of Stitch Simple. THANK YOU JEN!
Hue Knew . . .
Hue Knew when I designed this print that the color would shift with each print run?
Hue Knew it would get lighter, then darker then lighter again?
Hue Knew that the line weight would change even though the art work hadn’t?
Hue Knew that you would approve a strike off and receive something else?
Hue Knew India would have better quality control than South Carolina?
Hue Knew that the hand of pigments and dyes were so different?
Hue Knew 110” wide fabric would be such a stumbling block?
Hue Knew a non-sewer could actually get a quilt designed and made?
Hue Knew Jen, Carol and Marilyn would be willing to help me bring this story to life?
Hue Knew Harmony Art would be so challenging and also so rewarding?
Who knows what’s next?

Well done Harmony on the quilt and what a great little read!
Awww shucks, thanks Jay! You're gonna make me cry. I don't know if you can tell from the photo but there are lots of strike off notes and comments on it. It's sort of a time capsule of Harmony Art's history since Whispering Grass was the VERY first fabric we printed. It's been quite a journey for sure! It's the lovely people like you that have kept me going through the bumps in the road.

Your quilt is awesome, Harmony! I'm so glad you participated. Can I count on you next year, too?
