On the Design Wall

We had some absolutely stunning palettes to work from over the weekend at Quilt Design a Day.  I had gobs of fun designing.  The colors reminded me of summers sitting by the pool, but in the shade with sunscreen and a hat, drinking cold drinks–heaven!!  I’ve been thinking about making this one.  It would be fun to do with Dale Fleming’s 6-minute circle method, which you can find here:  http://www.hgtv.com/video/easy-circle-quilt-blocks-video/index.html).

I’d also like to sew the Ocean Waves quilt in the patriotic colors.  What a great idea for a July 4 picnic.  It would be tons of fun to quilt in the negative space–fireworks, exploding feathers, etc.

Have you ever felt like the “odd bird” out?  I know that I sure have, just like the red bird above.  However, that is the bird that makes the quilt interesting I think.  Celebrate your unique-ness today!!

Did you notice that most of my designs were inspired by things that happen in the summer??!!  “Orange Cream sickle”,  I loved them as a kid (if truth were to be known, I think I still like them 🙂 ).  Enjoy the spring!!

Linking up with:  Anything Goes Monday.

Have a quilty day!!
