Color Stories

I am very taken with color.  I am intrigued by the feelings that it can evoke in each of us and the memories and possibly daydreams that is brings to mind.  I enjoy exploring color in my quilts more than any other design element I believe.  

This is a color inspiration photograph from the Benjamin Moore Paint website. I often look at paint websites for color inspiration.  I have been very drawn to neutrals and the cool calming affect that they seem to have for me.

How do you feel about color?  Do you have an emotional reaction to certain colors?  Just a thought.

I'm a Cover Girl

I am really flattered and excited to see one of my quilts on the cover of the upcoming Quilter's World magazine.  I heard about it yesterday and needless to say I was thrilled.  This is a fun pattern, a granny square block made with Riley Blake fabrics from their upcoming line "Hello Sunshine" which is currently in your quilt shops.  It is really a fun fabric line, please check it out.
