Today's subject for our writing challenge is "First Project". Well since I consider my first two quilt projects as cross-stitch projects that started me down my quilting path I have to go with a Log Cabin quilt. I do not have a photo of it but this is the setting I used for it.
I chose the Log Cabin pattern because it looked beginner friendly. And I thought our bed needed a quilt. Since my beloved is red-green colorblind, blue is really the only color he can see. So I do a lot with blue for our home. Except at Christmas-Christmas is all about my red and white.
I have a hard time imagining life without all of the colors that I take for granted. Ken says that he thinks I may get closest to his vision at dusk, when the light is fading and colors loose their vibrancy as they take on a tonal quality.
The main time our difference in viewing color comes out though is at sunset. He will exclaim how beautiful it is and when I look I do not see much color. I of course call him to the window when I see an incredible sunset and he does his best to see its beauty.
I guess that is one of the things that continues to draw me to quilting. The ability to play with color to express myself. It is also such fun to see how we each interpret a pattern with the color choices we make. Oh, and by the way, I have made several more log cabin quilts playing with different settings and flourishes too. It remains one of my favorite quilt patterns to explore.

I hope you have a blessed day!
