I made this piece in Feb. 2008.  It is 19" x 23.5"
















I had the quilt top on my design wall for about 8 years.  I finally finished it in Feb. 2008.  It is 20" square.












Colorwash bars, designed and pieced in 1995 and quilted many years later.  My first colorwash pieces were made with calico type fabrics and from there I went to multicolor busy floral prints of a little larger size.




This is one of my earliest pieces made with 1.5" squares that finish at 1".  It is 12.75" square.










This is another early piece, also with squares finishing at 1".  It is 16.5" square.
I sold this piece so I can't measure it but i think it is about 25" square.  If you go back to this post you will see how I store the squares for working on this type of quilt.
I challenged myself to go one step farther with this colorwash and add applique to it.  I liked it before I added the triangles and I like it afterwards so I'm not sure what I learned there.  This piece is 36" x 37".
This piece was one of the first colorwash pieces that I made.  I believe it was in January of 1991.  It was accepted in the AQS show in 1992.  It is 49" square.
I entered this quilt in the local county fair quite a few years ago and it won the Best Quilt purple ribbon.  It is a Colorwash Trip Around the World.
