I like color! I really like coloring with my new Prismacolor pencils. I like Crayola for everyday stuff but I was able to make a few little subtle attempts at shading here. I am gonna try to use some of these colors in Zentangle tiles and for more special coloring pages. Maybe I will invest in a really big set later when all my other pencils are used up.
I like color and this quilt isn’t lacking! I had Kaffee Fassett fabrics and some bright scraps, I impulsively bought a book written by Tula Pink called City Sampler-100 modern blocks. Then I decided to make them, all 100. Wow, tiny traditional pieces in these 6 inch blocks! I set all 100 in this straight set. I liked several other settings in the book but I decided setting them in this grey made each block have a chance to stand on it’s own merit. They really are like little tiny quilt works that sparkle in the collection. It will be a couple of months before I can get this quilted. Good thing because it will give me time to think about what I want to quilt on it.
The view below is where from a sew in Saturday with my quilt friends, I chose to work on this top and got most of it done!
It was cool to watch the planes come in. However, I must say it felt like I was at the Artic Circle. And the snow continues….
