I've had lots of custom dyeing to do the past few weeks so haven't done a lot of new stuff. I am mostly keeping up with the popular gradients and have 4 back in stock today. The first one is Thrive and I have a new customer quilt to share.
Donaleen Kohn is a customer and blog friend and she loves the Thrive gradient and any other with a combination of green and yellow. She loves working with raw edges and hand quilting big stitch style. In this quilt she combined Thrive, Abundance Meadow Sunrise and some other gradients with hand dyed red. I just love the play of the cool colors with the red.
Another popular gradient that's back in stock is Gray Skies. Just as I was preparing this post I got a nice surprise in my email box.
Betsy Hughes made this art quilt using the top half of the Gray Skies gradient.This is exactly the kind of piece I imagined when I first developed this gradient.
The Black Gradient is also back in stock and it coordinates with Gray Skies. The darkest part of Gray Skies is the middle part of Black.
Ending on a bright note, Blue Sky is also back in stock this week. While I love the bright colors, my next quilt is planned to have the Black Gradient as it's background.
