Maryte Collard – M

Inspiration: as I said many times before, I will continue on the same path for all letters, by using the letter itself as the main design element.

As in previous letters S, P, C, and D, I pieced the background using my own hand dyed fabrics, mostly in pastels, but adding some darker shades for contrast. This time I wanted the main color of the piece to be pink. It was easy, because I already had some pink  leftover blocks from another quilt. I also added some colors from previous quilts: green, blue, yellow and purple. When all quilts are put close together  touching each other, those colors transition from one quilt to another. Three burgundy diamonds are corresponding with the main color of this quilt. The same fabric and hand stitching are used for the letter. Letter M is reaching  the edge of the quilt at three points. Hope this will help to make an additional  design, when I put all 6 quilts together at the end of the year.

Everything is done using my favorite techniques: machine piecing, dense machine quilting and hand stitching.

From all letter quilts this is my favorite so far. I love the colors, the shape of the letter and the fact that this is the first letter of my first name. I am goin to use an image of this quilt to create my logo.
