Wednesday Words and Work in Progress

Re-arranging my blog template and having great fun with colour combinations - a work still in progress  right now.

Pulling out a variety of greens to start off something new -  a pattern in The Quilt Life  (August edition) from Stephanie Serrano aka Venus de Hilo. Do go along and visit, colour just explodes from her quilts! More to be posted on this new project next week.

Red Sea Sunset
Busy pressing Red Sea Sunset as I stitch the diagonal seams

Next round of strips for Cotton Candy, love this Spot in Mint colour way
and had hoped to have added another three rounds to the quilt today but just didn't work out that way.

Such sad news yesterday that Robin Williams had passed away - a tragedy. What a brilliant guy, I have seen a number of his films but my favourite has just got to be the comedy Mrs Doubtfire, I could watch this movie over and over again and still fall on the floor laughing. Tonight we were told that Lauren Bacall had also passed, a great actress.

On that sad note I'm off to my bed as it's a very, very cold night here in Auckland, New Zealand and we have a King Tide about to hit the coast just around now!

What fun to see the color range of the green choices juxtaposed with pieced reds and purples of the Sunset. What you might use in one and what you did use in the other. Lovely!

I had to go off and research King Tide and was quite pleased to see it involves celebrations with at least 10 yards of fabric. And the closeup of your Red Sea Sunset makes me realize that that quilt must really knock socks off in person.

I love Venus' work - she's so very talented and like you say, color explodes from her quilts! Love the fabrics you have picked out there - something good is on its way I can tell! Stay warm - and what is a King Tide by the way? I've never heard of that before.
