I am in a color challenge group at 3creativestudios.com and the colors for February were blues and yellows, using an iris as the color scheme. I made a table runner and did a butterfly with machine embroidery on my standard sewing machine. Please join me in the group. Anyone can submit a photo for the contest, and you can make any kind of craft, such as painting, dolls, etc. It doesn't have to be a quilt. Each month they send a different set of colors to use.
One end of my table runner.
It really isn't this badly wrinkled, but it doesn't matter, because I am going to make a set of these and applique them to a painted quilt. I will cut the white fabric away from the butterfly to use it. This is all done on my regular sewing machine.
