Colors Catching My Eye

Within the last year, I've come across gorgeous quilts and blocks like these from Piece O' Cake Designs and I fell in love with them. They are so vibrant and I realized that vibrancy of color was lacking in my own quilting. Inspired, I bought a couple of their books and I'm now working on a quilt with brighter, clearer colors than I typically use. I still love my muddy, muted colors, but I need some sparkle in my life, too. See the next post for my work in progress.

Misty, I've made Tulips in the Park...in brights on white. I gave it to Cynthia. You'll have to get her to bring it in sometime when you'll both be there. Cheers, Kim
