A Girl and Her Dog

I enjoy this sketch designed by Izak Zanou for Kaufman fabrics, called Who's that Girl?  But, for me this small section had no color... well, at least not the colors I love. 

Slowly I started adding more vibrant colors, and thanks to the Kaffe fabric, I feel like it gained some umph.

Thanks for stopping by.

The Next Project

My Smitten Quilt is nearly done, and I'm ready to start the next project... La Passacaglia... gulp.

First things first, though.  This time I am starting out with a color scheme that I will try to cultivate:

There are just so many color schemes I want to explore.  Can I stick to just this side of the rainbow?   We'll see.

This site has some amazing color palettes of inspiration from the work of Jenny Friske-Baer.  I love the way the colors swirl into this glass bead.  Here's hoping I can swirl color with the fabric rosettes:

Gorgeous color palette as well:

I can live all day in these colors.  Maybe I'll go with a combination of these color schemes.  Decisions, decisions...

A Jungle Out There

A way to forget about my worries and my strife...  Smitten Quilting.

I'm starting to like the non-fussy cutting in this Smitten quilt.  The only fussy cut here was the beautiful shoe - showcased among the leaves branches and polka dots.  I felt like that was the most important thing in this block - a great pair of shoes - and isn't that the rule of the jungle, anyways?!

This quilt block was created shortly after attending a workshop with THE Kaffe Fasset.  One of my takeaways was taking risks in blending fabrics.  I never would have put this combo together, but once I cut into the fabric and started moving things around, this seemed to come together to my liking.

Some fabrics used were "Who's that Girl" and a Kaffe fabric.  I can't remember the rest, but I love them, too.  Would love to know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day.
