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.
