Mid Atlantic Damage!

Mid Atlantic Damage 1
Mid Atlantic Damage 2
Mid Atlantic Damage 3
Well I am literally just getting home from the Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival and I had an amazing time with my mom this weekend. On that note, I am wayyyy too exhausted to think about writing the blog post I want to so I am heading to bed and will recap tomorrow, with some quilt photos as well. For now, you guys can take a peek at the damage that was done this weekend. To be fair, I have been looking for a few of these for a while! LOL. Good thing I didn’t stash pact or diet or anything!! I would have totally failed by Feb! Yikes!!!

Single Girl Support Group

Have you seen this group! Don’t worry, you don’t have to be single to join! 😉

Nova over at A Cuppa and A Catchup created the support group for the Denyse Schmidt’s Single Girl Quilt.
I am hating that I am having to wait to get started since I still haven’t gotten my pattern in the mail. Hopefully it will get here by the weekend, although I won’t be able to work on it until next week. For now all I can do is admire the other participant’s blocks and pick my fabrics.
Here are some of my favorites so far:
piecing
single girl ring.
Single Girl test block
Single Girl progress - arc #1
Single Girl Ring
So much awesomeness!! Now you can see why I am so anxious to get started!!

I’ve have received some messages on how I select my color choices for my quilts and other crafty goodness. I decided I would start sharing my process with a new series I will call “Inspired.” Most of my everyday inspiration comes from the outdoors and the naturalistic palette. I have come to realize how amazing nature is. If you glance around outside, you will notice that EVERY color in nature goes together.
I tend to flow more towards the aqua, blue, green palette, mainly because [1] aqua is my favorite color, and [2] I live at the beach where blue sky’s and aqua water engulfs every glance. I also get a lot of inspiration browsing the internet, glancing through magazines, and my photography.

I usually start by deciding what the dominating color it. In this case it is Aqua, I then decided on 3 shades, Dark, Med, Light. From there I choose and opposite color, which is the orange and a neutral or two (I only put one neutral in the palette, but two in the fabric stack).
Of course there are TONS of different fabrics to choose from, but I start by making a first stack and go from there. Sometimes I stay with the original colors, sometimes I completely ditch the first plan. I do however usually add addition fabrics to the stack through out the process. Lately those additions have been leaning towards solids.
So give it a try, grab a photo you love, create a palette and grab some fabrics. See what you come up with!!
Keep checking back for more Inspired palette selections!
I am also loving these stairs today. Yellow and white are just fabulous together!
