Quilt + wind

IMG_9077

Note to self:  don’t drag your husband + kids out to take quilt pictures on an extra windy day.   It will make everybody cranky and then you’ll have to buy them all donuts to make them happy again.

It’s much easier to take pictures inside.  I loosely picked the colors for this quilt from that Denyse Schmidt polka dot.  After many quilts in these colors I’ve yet to tire of this combo.  Inspired by this lovely quilt.

Hehe, beautiful! I like the windy shot. :)

Angie said...

LOL!!! Now I'm wishing I hadn't deleted all my windy-day quilt pics from last week. Gusts of up to 20 mph. To say the least I waited a day for some do-overs.

Beautiful quilt - love your colors!

I just have to say, I read lots of quilt blogs, and your color combos are pretty much always my favorites. They are always so happy. Just wanted you to know. :)

Such a pretty quilt...adding the three dark green crosses was key, I'd say! Love it!!

Love this!! My poor family is so sick of me taking pictures of quilts. (And my backyard neighbors think I'm crazy). I need to try more donuts.

Love the white with the green and blues! I always have to bribe my siblings to do quilt holding. "If you hold this up I'll give you bubblegum!"

It really is a lovely quilt! So pleasing. I love hearing which print was your initial inspiration (especially since I have that same print). Sounds like an adventure for all!

Ah,yes, quilt wind. Although my hubby whines when he has to help me take pictures of quilts even when it's not windy. Sheesh. What I need is a maid servant!

It's a beautiful combination of fabrics, fresh and cool. I love the windy shot, but also the indoor shot hanging from the clothespins.

Love the quilt! The colors are perfect combo and it reminds me of the seashore.

liz said...

I thought I was going to be original and tell you I love your colour combination. No wonder you want to keep using it. Oh well, it's obviously true.

On A Hot Tin Roof said...

that is gorgeous!

Sue said...

You use a lot of white. Do you buy it by the bolt? What kind of white fabric do you use?
Your quilts are always beautiful!

Cheryl Arkison said...

Love that colour combo too! Working on one in that colourway myself.

evamarie said...

It's beautiful! I love the freshness of the colours on white and the simplicity of the design. Another one on my to do list! Eva-Marie

Sachiko said...

I love love this quilt! I would love to make one for myself. :) Taking pictures of a quilt or my dresses (since I am the one wearing it) is always tricky too. Buying some donuts is a great idea. :)
