I love med and darks with black and whites as a quilt reicipe. I love tragic novels. I watch movies that need a box of kleenex instead of the popcorn. Yet I am really a happy person, really I am. So I have been thinking of changeing my color palate to reflect a little lightness. Quilting Arts most recent magazine has an interesting article on this very subject. What convinced me to take action is a student of mine. Her name is Tina Kennedy and I often joke we were separated at birth. We are making a quilt in class using the Kings Cross block and Tina chose a light color palate. When I saw her blocks my heart went pitter/patter. So I finally purchased 18 quarters to get started. I hope to share blocks with you tomorrow.
