Moving This Way

Every spring I want to make something in soft pinks and peaches with a muted background like soft gray.  Inevitably after picking my soft palette, within a mere week the weather turns and I find myself wishing for bright vibrant colors and setting aside those muted pinks and peaches.  Looking back at the past May posts I have realized that I do this every year!  So this year I've made a top that captures that feeling...the vibrant colors pushing out the soft feminine ones...

My life is in the throes of those bright saturated colors right now.  Without going into the details, I'll just say that lots of life decisions were contemplated over the past two months.  Unfortunately, as a result, my Juki hasn't seen much of me at all.  I'm hoping to get past it and start quilting this beautiful top - I'm confident when I say that I've earned that much.

For the names/collections of some of the fabrics I've used in this quilt top check out my post here.

Utterly gorgeous! I feel like I can be exactly the same way - I adore those peachy tones but my alter ego craves bright colours ;) I've been meaning to email you and I'm sorry I haven't, life gets crazy. Sending hugs and love xxxxx

That looks marvellous! I also seem to have a bit of a split personality when it comes to colours - I'm either soft and muted (pastels and white/pale grey) or bright and vibrant (brights and black/navy/dark grey) and seem to lurch from one to the other. Maybe I haven't found my signature style yet? Maybe I haven't got one...

P.S. Hope you're okay xxx
