I'm back from holidays, refreshed and inspired for a new season of creating! This is me, on the Santa Monica Pier, enjoying the Pacific Ocean breeze! The Pier was crowded on this warm Saturday afternoon, but I was in my own little world as I gazed out over the water.
While I was away, I embellished the last four squares of the Black and Brights quilt. This black and crystal block will be the centre:
This one is pale blue and black, although the colours are a little off in the photo.
This block is much prettier in person, for some reason, I don't like the photograph. When I lay out the blocks, I'll see if it needs a little tweaking.
The yellow/gold block is one of the prettiest, and it's a colour combination, I have NEVER been brave enough to use before. Yellows and oranges can overwhelm a quilt so easily, so this is a first for me, and I hope I can make it work.
