Rust finally done!



I was so excited when I saw the new color, rust.  But then for days struggled as I couldn't find fabrics that worked together.  Finally I happened upon the small flower piece in the middle of the above block and set off in a whole new direction, which resulted in the above block.  The rust fabric I used is lighter than what I was originally try to use which you can see below on the left.  Maybe my problem was that my first rust (fabric on the left) wasn't as rusty as I originally thought.


Finally, I want to share my made fabric which started out as strips left over from my Internaational Robin project.  I am so happy to get to used these fabrics together again.

GORGEOUS, Willa!! That focus fabric is lovely, and your made fabric ... WOW! I also like the purple with it, and would never have thought to use it with rust. What wonderful play.

Your rust block is stunning! I also love the made fabric. The purple does look amazing with the rust. Who knew? I am two colors behind now. Hopefully, I will get caught up this weekend. Wish we lived closer so we could play.

Nice job! Just curious...is your rust a batik? I found most of my good rust options (including what I used) were batiks.

Willa said...

Yes, the rust is a batik. I am so surprised at how well the orientals are mixing with batiks and so many other fabrics. I would never have thought to mix so many fabrics with the oriental fabrics!

This is a beautiful piece of work with great colour matching. Your made fabric strip at the end is a little work of art.
