May For Me - Day 15
I am sharing my work space again - and forced to change plans due to a bit of an accident. I will spare the gore, but in the wee hours of yesterday morning I had an 'oops' - rotary jumped the ruler. So I am a bit one handed, but not down. I just will be behind in my planned handwork and FMQ - but hey, 3 weeks left in the month, so no fears! So I am playing with my 1.5" squares to prep a scrappy border - I am going to need a lot of these!
I have to blame Sheila for this purchase - saw those 'Symphany in Blue' fabrics in her strip quilt and had to have. And I was low on yellows and pinks. (fabrics from Connecting Threads) But perfect for our discussion 'behind the scenes' with May For Me. COLOR: Share our stories...
"....about what is the most predominant color (or favorite color) you use in your quilting, what inspires it, and what is your favorite block or pattern to use with it."
If you follow me, you know I will play with almost anything. But my favorite color and most predominant color is blue. I find it can be a soft color, a bold color, a mood color. Like being a child, laying on the hillside looking up to the sky in a daydream. A favorite block for it - oh so many can be named. But I am in the progress of using some of my blues in a Churn Dash. I have a blue quilt I plan to share in the up-coming Blogger's Quilt Festival.
Maybe you can share a color story on your blog or any of our four blogs.
