Name of the Quilter: Michaela

Name of the Exercise: Battle of Colours


What Michaela says about week 14:

My favorite earth-tone and natural colors are fighting with my least liked color pink.

My first thought was: "Oh my God, I shall sew something in pink? Do I want this at all?”

I really didn’t feel like sewing something in pink because I can’t stand this color, especially pastel pink. There was only one solution: I went outside in my garden and did something completely different!

Since spring began early this year, the garden was already in full bloom – beautiful!  There was the magnolia tree with its large white pink flowers, the bergenia was showing an overwhelming abundance of pink blossoms this year, and even the dead-nettles were already starting to flourish in bright pink on the lawn. Could it be that this color keeps haunting me…?!

My wall hanging on the topic "Favorite Color Fights with Least Liked Color” features a branch of a hydrangea because I really like this bush. The flowers appear in June and bloom until autumn. The hydrangea is simply beautiful - although it blooms in PINK!

My colors don’t really fight with each other because they go well together (as nature taught me). Therefore, I call my piece “Colors in Harmony.”
