My initial color idea for this quilt was to use all blues and greens, and try to invoke water. When I spoke to her mother though, she said her favorite colors were purple and yellow. With that in mind, I added sunset colors to my water. I would still like to do one in all blues and greens.
My dear friend Regina Carter has been prodding me to get a pattern done for this quilt:
I have most of the pattern written, but I would like to proof read it tomorrow, when I am feeling a bit fresher. I think that I will enjoy finishing this quilt.
I had a couple of outings sewing with friends this week. I needed something that was portable to carry with me. Neither was a great situation for carrying in a sewing machine. Last year, I cut a bunch of strips to make a quilt using the Economy block:
I got this idea a couple of years ago when I made all of those Economy blocks for my Missing Monkeys quilt.
This time I am planning to use this painting for a color reference.
I cut all of the strips last year, so I have been spending my time with my friends cutting those strips into squares. Next outing, I will start pinning color combinations together.
Last, but not least, I am still working on this quilt:
It doesn't look like I made much progress, but I got several strip sets put together for it.
I am planning to link up to patchworktimes.com for Design Wall Monday, where you can see what many quilters are working on. It's loads of fun, and will surely brighten your day. Check it out! Thanks for stopping by!
