WIP Wednesday

Last week I started working on some kaleidoscope sections for a new scrap quilt.  I only had four colors done last Wednesday but as the week progressed I had added more and even posted what I had finished on facebook to see if anyone had any suggestions as to what colors to add to my collection.

 Most votes went for orange but a couple were for green and red.  I had been trying to keep from buying new fabrics but my orange stash was very limited with mostly Halloween fabrics and not anything I wanted to use for this quilt.  After a quick trip to look for fabric I came home with some new orange fabrics and the rest were already in my stash, this is what I have so far.

I added an orange, a lime green and a mauve Kaleidoscope section to my collection, now I just need to finish them up into squares and decided on a setting for this quilt.

WIP Wednesday

After being gone for almost a year due to health reasons I am back and praying that I stay healthy this year and I will not have any more interruptions in my creative journey.

With dreams of warmer Spring days I am working with pastels which is not my usual selection of colors as I usually lean toward warm fall earth tones.  I am just so anxious for Winter to come to an end that this was a change of pace for me.

My inspiration for this new project came when someone added a quilt that I sold on Etsy to their favorites list and remembering how much fun it was to make I was inspired to make another.  This particular quilt sold on Etsy almost 5 years ago so it is definitely time to make another and so far I have 4 sections finished and ready to start on number 5.  When each section has it's corner sections added the blocks will measure 16 1/2 inches.

It may take me longer than what I would like but this quilt will get done.
