While at a hotel recently, while a certain poodle puppy had a power nap, I watched some shows on Netflix
(I also basted, then sewed some more hexie star blocks I had prepared)
Of course I had to play with the leaves a bit... I am raking in a lot of leaves now!
This is exactly why I love sewing from the scrap bin. All the tones and shades together remind me to try one next to another. I like this arrangement and I didn't fuss with it, just laid them out on white fabric.
I've been told by other quilters, that one shouldn't use much yellow.
Huh? Crazy. Yellow, and orange, make a quilt sing. They bring warmth and glow.
Proportion comes into play here... one might not enjoy dark gray, but a strip of dark gray might shadow and bring to life another shape. Same with yellow highlights.
They are so stinkin' cute lying there aren't they?
What a gift the afternoon was to me.
Those of you who visit only on Saturday might be interested to know I do an "I Like" post every Thursday where I list the positive things that made me smile during the week. I have been joined in doing these posts by about 12 other bloggers. Please come look at those posts and join us! I'll add in your link!
