Take it Further Challenge-February


Colors playing against each other….blue and orange competing for attention on opposite sides of the color wheel.  I liked this arrangement, but I like the next one better.

I decided to forego the circle template and just free hand cut.  Much more interesting being purposely off kilter.  Added some wool fleece by needle felting to give the circles a more organic look.  And free motion embroidered the background, touching the circles to hold them down.  This piece needs a little more stitching, maybe some beads.  Perhaps it will become another pillow (12 x 12 inches), or a small purse/pouch, or ?????.  Welcome any suggestions.

  1. Love it, Deb. The complementary colors give it plenty of energy and the muted hues give it richness rather than busyness.


  2. I love circles. I really really like your piece.
    The circular motifs of the free motion embroidery is simply perfect.I think a pillow will allow the eye to feast on the composition of the circles.

  3. This is really lovely, I love the way that you used the color scheme. I am getting more and more intrigued by needlefelting. The free motion quilting is a perfect touch.

    I wasn’t thrilled by the color scheme this month, but I love the colors in this. I guess I didn’t give it enough thought.
