OK, so what do you do when.....
life keeps you too busy to get into your sewing room? Well, I just get myself involved with yet another project! On the way home from a doctor's visit the other day, I succombed to the siren song of JoAnn's. I had to drive past it, and I haven't bought anything in sooooo looong, and I did just join a Shakespeare in the Park group.........so, I stopped and I bought.
I have been trying to decided what colors to use, if you go to the Judy Martin site, you'll see many example's to inspire you. Many seem to be blue and white. I love blue and white, but I don't want to do that for this quilt. What to do, what to do? A while back someone shared a quilt on her blog ( I think it was Mary, but wouldn't swear to it) That was purple and orange and absolutely breathtaking. It was an entirely different pattern, but the color combination is what caught my imagination. So, that is what I am going to try. When I finally get that far, I'll make a few blocks in this combination and see how I like it. I may wind up changing after that, but for now, here's what I bought to work with. Looking at these fabrics, I'm thinking that I may need lighter values of the orange, maybe some more of the darker purples. What do you think?
