color

i don't know where most of you get your color inspiration, but mine often comes while unloading the dishwasher.

i think this combo will make a lovely baby boy quilt.

  4. I have patio cushions those colours with some black added in. I have been wanting to make a quilt using those colours. I would love to see what you do.

  7. Lovely colors! I guess that makes emptying the dishwasher worth it, right? ;)

  8. Perfect colors for a quilt! I thought I was the only one who looked to dinnerware for color inspiration.

  10. I love that color combo! I have the same experience with my dishes. Although, I probably need some neutral dishes also.

  11. Nice! My dishes are plain (off) white. I thought it would be smart to get neutral dishes so I can use them no matter what kitchen decor I have. Meh - BORING.

    Lovely shades of blue!

  14. It is funny how we get inspiration. I was driving to work the other day and saw some roses and was totally inspired by them.

  15. I think you are right. My color inspiration comes from everywhere and anywhere in the world around me.

  16. I always have a hard time coming up with sewing and knitting projects to make for my son... it's far easier when they're younger! those ice cream dishes are great, I especially like the aqua.

  17. I love the top one - it's what I always use at home. I mixed it with a medium blue and off white (plus a couple of pale pink that showed up as replacements for broken bowls)

  20. I can't wait to see what you make. Those are my favorite colors! Very pretty!

  21. I just saw in my closet a great color combo for a quilt. I guess the colors you're drawn to are bound to pop up in your closet, your quilts, and even your dishes! Can't wait to see what you do with it! :)

  22. I agree! I have those latte bowls in aqua and orange and everytime I see them together, I want to make a quilt in those colours!

    ReplyDelete
  23. FANTABULOUS color combo! aqua looks good with just about anything, IMO :)

  24. I love these colors too. We just finished our basement and these are the colors of our new family room. I can't wait to see what lovely quilt you make from this new inspiration.

  25. This so interesting because I also get color inspiration from unloading my dishwasher. Just did a post on my dishes. I love to see what combination serendipitously turns up when I take them out.

  26. I have those bowls and I LOVE them, except I never want to use them, just stare at them or set them om the mantel. Thanks for stopping by -Allison

  27. Neat! I just started a whirligig quilt with those same colors over the weekend. I picked up a great navy blue and white stripe for the backing. I'm doing large-scale whirligigs based on a tutorial for houndstooth blocks from M'liss Hawley's "Fat Quarter Quilts" book. I'm flipping the houndstooth to make the 'gigs. It's a super simple method that has me sewing long strips together and then cutting out the 'gigs. No funny-measuring rectangles required! I've enjoyed reading your blog over the last month -- my thanks for sharing your creativity!

  28. The picture of the bowls caught my eye because I have the same exact ones - in those colors as well as about 8 more. My husband always makes fun of me b/c every time I unload the dishwasher, I arrange the bowls in color combinations for inspiration as well.

  29. Perfect!
    Gee, I just look to fabric for my inspiration. I need to open my eyes!

  30. I've had navy on my mind lately too.
