This is my Weekly Journal Quilt 11/52 2008. I was inspired by a gorgeous photo of a political celebration with women in gorgeous clothing in the colors shown here. The photo has been sitting in my sketchbook for many months. The photo also had a lot of diagonal movement, which is why I ultimately decided to use strips on the diagonal. I used variegated green thread on the strips. After I completed the strips, the piece needed some more interest, so I added a layer of tulle with flocked black polka dots. It mutes the colors just a bit and brings in contrast, which I love!
