Colour My World

The colour for the RSC 2015 this month is light blue or even
a blue/green but I have been pretty slow to get going on teapots
and scrappy mountains!!!

However I've been busy working on other projects, I posted a shot of
fabrics for a quilt for my grand-daughter and good progress is
being made, blocks put together

here's a peek.

"High Flyer" is the name of this quilt - Alice, our grand-daughter, is 10yrs old and in a cheerleading
team, I think she's now in an elite squad. She is a natural and very, very good. When I was
young cheerleaders were girls at the rugby matches dancing and
usually waving coloured pom poms but now it's a whole different scene!
The gymnastics, the leaps and somersaults are amazing.
 Alice is a flyer in the squad and so we have the name of the
quilt, given that I have flying geese in there into the bargain it seemed a good choice.

I have hunted out my Fruit Salad blocks and have those up on the design wall, 
still need a few more and I'm determined that these
will be done by the end of the month and then I should be onto the borders.

The Pear Aboriginal Dot is still not showing well, it's a beautiful colour.
This is one of my pieces as contributor to 
15 Minutes Play.

And for "stress relief" I have begun my colouring book

I love dragonflies so this is my first choice and as a break from the machine for
a short time it truly is relaxing.

Of course now our four legged friends are asking for their
evening meal so that's my time at the machine and computer over
for the evening!

I'll be back Sunday or Monday with something to show for RSC 2015.

I love your coloring in. I can see I am going to have to have one of these books. Perhaps when we get back. Only trouble is I don't know if I would call that relaxing! I'd probably be all wound up trying to do it perfectly. Oh the challenges of being a type A personality!

I love that dragon fly - did you draw it and colour it or is it in an actual colouring book.

Leeanne said...

Wow did you draw the dragonfly? Really lovely. Your granddaughter is sure to love her colourful vibrant quilt.

Your granddaughter is going to to love that beautiful quilt. And with all that colour it looks like you're surrounded by summer.

What a beautiful quilt for Alice! Thanks for showing your 15 minutes play blocks, too. I keep trying to crazy patch my leftovers but they never seem to look good after 2-3 inches. Obviously, more practice required.

Love the fabrics in your High Flyer. Sounds like a great name choice for your granddaughter. The design looks like my Cascade pattern.
