Terrie Langer's Inspiration for the Hadley ChallengeTerrie with her quilt top at the July 12th meeting. She shares with us her color choice and inspiration below.
"When I started this project I wasn't sure what colorway to go with or whether I should use all three. I always joke that I will never wear orange or brown, as it was a uniform I wore for many years managing Pioneer Chicken Restaurants (think KFC and 50+ hour work weeks) in Southern California! I went with the orange(will also wear brown now and then) and was inspired by Denyse Shmidt's pattern,Between the Lines. Suzanne had done a huge quilt for her daughter using the same pattern and shared it with us at our last meeting. So, this is my take on Between the Lines. I had actually cut my fabric for another pattern and switched patterns after cutting; forget all about measure twice and cut once! I used paper piecing to make the 8 1/2 inch blocks. The quilt came together quickly. The top is finished and now on to quilting... a whole other story." XO,Terrie
