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.
