WIP Wednesday

Well, it is Thursday now here in Australia but anyway:)   These are just a couple of the swaps/challenges that have caught my eye so far this year........
Tangerine Tango Quilt Challenge
Following on from my last post about the Tangerine Tango challenge, I have gone through my stash and surprisingly, found quite a few tangerine/orange fabrics:
Tangerine/orangey fabrics
(solids, spots,Denyse Schmidt,Amy Butler,Joel Dewberry,Sandi Henderson)

Along with these, we can use one other colour and one neutral solid (shades of white, cream, beige, brown, gray, and black). I have a few ideas of what I would like to make so will hopefully get started this weekend.
I have just gone through my my flickr favourites and saved photos to make a new mosaic for the Love of Solids (2) swap - this was such a fun swap last year and I can't wait to do it again!!.
Whilst I was looking for images, I kept going back to this one which I think would be stunning  made into a quilt. It is the cover of Gotye's album "MakingMirrors"  -  lots of little HST's in neutral tones. You may be familiar with this amazing song from the album - the video is very visually inspiring too:

  1. I want to see your version of making mirrors quilt, that is gorgeous!

  2. love your oranges!! I don't have that many, but am pulling them together. You'll see a similar post from me sometime soon! ;-)

  3. Kirsten love your orange stash! Lush fabrics :)
    The mosaic is very inspiring, that owl quilt is on my list of 'to do' quilts!

  4. Loving that orange challenge. I've also put in for the Love of Solids. Hoping I haven't bitten off more than I can chew!

  5. Ooh, that's quite the collection of orange! I'm loving that album cover, would make a fab solids quilt, so if you get me, that would work, okay? ;o)

  6. Love your pile of tangerine.
    I've been waiting to see if someone would make the album cover into a quilt. Love the song!
