Apricot, Cantaloupe, Carrot, Peach, Tangerine.... YUMMY! Not just a fabulous color...
I think that designing with Orange can be a challenge. As an accent or "poison" color Orange can make or break a good design.My mom is an amazing teacher. One of the concepts of color that she teaches her students is to have a color in your quilt that is a poison, just a little to make the other colors sing! I think that orange can be one of those colors....
I used orange in Generous to make the other colors sing...and because I like orange!!!
Have a great day!!!!

Sunkissed.....reminds me of flowers....so many beautiful yellow flowers. The Sunflower is one of my all time favorite flowers...I love to grow them in my yard and watch my girls pick the seeds and re-plant them. To see a new sunflower grow. Yellow is so happy, it can brighten your day, make you smile. Its no wonder more people are happy when the sun is out.

What can I say as a black and white photographer I love this color... and there is something about gray that is calming and peaceful. Iron is a cool blueish gray that reminds me of the keys in an old typewriter.
Last week I accidently did a bad link to my new blog....
I love, love, love white.....cool white, warm white, almost white, gray white, cream white....ALL white. One of my favorite quilts I have ever made is Trinity which uses my Wish collection and a variety of whites in the background....cottons and linens which gives a subtle color and textural change to using just a solid white.
Enjoy all the subtle beauty of white!
Have a great day!
The lucky 3 winners will be emailed.... not to worry I have lots more to give away over the year!!! Keep your eyes out....
Color of the Week starts next Thursday. I have been filling my days with color. While flipping through iPhoto today I noticed that I kept stopping at black and white images.
Black and white photography was my first love.... The first art form that really captured me. I will always find some of the best inspiration within black and white photography.
I figured that before we journey on a year of color we should enjoy the beauty of the black and white photograph.
A few of my black and white images. The last couple dating back to my college days. I have books upon books of negatives as well as printed images. Now I just have thousands upon thousands upon thousands of digital images on my computer. Times have changed for me and my photography but one thing will remain the same how much I love the emotion that is evoked with a black and white photograph.
Have a great day!
