Follow on from post ..In my corner

In my post  on the 9-8-14 My Corner ..I had a quilt in the frame for Pinestream Quilters Exhibition later that year...The theme was Warmth.
My idea was to convey a feeling of warmth thru colour. I love bright vibrant colours, no cool blues in this quilt, but maybe a little green... I enjoy working in small pieces and this quilt is made from my scraps. The only fabric I actually went out to buy was the bright green..
I called my quilt Warmth. The colours reminded me of all things warm.. And it kept me warm during the cold winter nights as I quilted it. By hand of course.
I then made a second one using different colours in the 9 patches again using scraps... My favourite is Warmth
The  second photo is Warmth 2.
