 I sent the Blue Deco quilt to Chris for quilting. That means the dining room table is naked.

I liked Julie's No Ugly Flowers so much....
that I decided I had to do a version in spring-y and summer-y colors for my table.

 I picked some greens.
I picked some yellows.

Now I need some pinks and maybe some blues and some oranges. And some WOWs (oh gee darn, that's easy).

This is from Sujata Shah's book, Cultural Fusion Quilts.

One final note. On the sidebar is a new link "Special Posts." It's not finished, but when I'm done I'll have links to the Red Letter  Alphabet Series, start and end dates for all my quilts, links to some of my favorite posts (like "If He Can Do It" and the Slashed Squares tutorial) and the ones where I say what I think about color and design, composition, and whatnot. It's a work in progress. If there's something you really want to see, let me know.  And yes, "The Value of Meh" will be there too.

I had a grand weekend. On Sunday I chatted with Chris for over two hours, and last night I talked to Julie for almost three. Nothing like a bit of high quality gal-pal time to improve just about anything!

Love your no ugly flowers, such a happy fun quilt. The fabrics for the new one are gorgeous. Love all those greens, reminds of spring.

I can't wait to see your flowers... no such thing as ugly flowers; impossible!
