Broken Ginkgos II — Fini

It’s still raining and I finished the second Broken Ginkgos art quilt.

I thought I had everything figured out ahead of time for this small quilt. I had planned to use the orange fabric — the ‘broken’ element in this quit — for the binding. In fact, it was cut, prepared and ready to stitch on when I got a little twinge in the part of the brain that screams about color.  Suddenly I knew it was the wrong thing to use. The dark cloud of indecision parked itself over my head. So I began auditioning alternate possibilities. When there were three good possibilities positioned next to three sides of the quilt I snapped a picture, downloaded it, cropped the picture and — viola! — the best contender stepped forward.

I’m pleased. This change in the weather could prove to be very helpful productivity-wise!

    The combination of orange and the navy blue fabrics produce a wonderful conclusion.
    Isn’t it great when the serendipitous weather produces the right result!

    Hi, Franki,
    We’re going to do the Broken Color technique at the Applique Group on Monday, and I am so happy to have another example to show them—your gingko! Aileyn

    Gorgeous! Of course, I’m partial to green, purple and orange together. They are the colors predominant in our saltwater fishtanks!
    Hope all is well, girlfriend!
