Warmth


It's November, the snow is on the ground, and it is time to think about warmth.

Warm colours, that is. I've noticed a trend in all the quilts I've been working on lately. All cool colours. Blues, greys, greens, and a little bit of beige. That includes Network, Kinda Herringbone, Camouflage, and a handful of projects on the go, like this 36 patch.

It's time to bring out the orange, the pinks, the reds and add the warmth back to my dining room table. Chilis, stews, and hot chocolate are all on deck, why not spice things up with fabric too?

I'm smiling. I pulled out my 36 patch this week too.

Snow on the ground???? This time of year is my favorite. All things comforting and warm...including quilts with those warming colors. Stay warm and snug~

I couldn't agree more! Alas, there is no snow here just yet. Things seem to be off to a slow start here in Ontario. I hope that doesn't meant that spring will be late in coming, as well!

it's funny, because i sorted out all my pinks, oranges and yellows from my scrap bin a few weeks ago (probably about the time your wrote this post, actually!)and set them aside. i love that we were on the same wavelength. :) i'm looking forward to playing with something besides blue and green for a change. perhaps i should start some large scrappy HST's?
