This week's color challenge is Gable Green, Lavender Lace and Pink Passion. I decided to adapt these colors to a card I brought to my upline's shoebox swap the other night.
Lesson #1 After lots of trial and error with the colors I determined that I needed lots of white to give this the feel of a baby card. So...
Lesson #2 ... I decided to add scallops. More experimenting and I learned that the corner rounder, minus its guard, makes exactly 2 scallops per 1 1/4" square making it pretty easy to make my scallops evenly spaced around the squares made with my 1 1/4" square punch. I can't wait to show this technique in my classes!
Lesson#3 It still needed more white so I mounted the quilt on a white card. I learned that taking photos to show white on white is no small trick. I've taken at least a dozen. This one uses side lighting with my camera flash turned off. Obviously my white still doesn't look very white but I hope you get the idea.
