Four-in-Art Reveal

I belong to a quilt group called Four-in-Art. Every 3 months we reveal individual quilt projects we have designed based on our yearly theme and a quarterly sub-theme. This year our theme is Light. This quarter's sub-theme was Shimmer. 

I had some silver lame in my sewing room that I wanted to use. I backed it with fusible woven interfacing for stability. I wanted to use batiks in blues and teals for a watery effect. I had two tries that didn't please me. My final try was what I had envisioned. So here is my 12 inch square quilt:

Shimmering Ponds

The 4 blocks were paper pieced. I randomly placed the lame in the pineapple block.
The day I photographed this, the sun was shining and the snow was fresh and white. 
I was pleased with the shimmering effect in the photo. 

I appreciate you visiting and welcome comments.

Lovely piece!

Oh this is gorgeous! I love the placing of the silver in among those teal fabrics, and the shimmery watery feel of it.

This is a really beautiful piece. Those blues give a lovely watery effect and the silver shimmers make me think of the sun shining on the sea :)

I really like the slivers of silver in between the beautiful blues of this little quilt. A real success!!

Definitely shimmering! The random placement of the lamé is especially effective! Sorry to be so slow to comment Nancy.

Yes! The shimmering ripples in water are lovely!

At first glance, I thought I read Simmering and not Shimmering and I thought what I fun name it is. Shimmering is equally delightful! At one point in time, I really wanted to have the job where you get to name paint and nail polish colors. What a fun job!
