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!!
