Link-up over at Quiltville. This week it's all about the geese, in sunrise colors. What is the difference between coral and melon, anyway? I think coral is an orangish pink, and melon is a pinkish orange, but I could be wrong about that. Add in salmon and I'm really confused... but I love peach. I just pulled down the pink and orange fabric bins and found at least 36 different fabrics. I even pulled some from the Connecting Threads "Whirlwind Romance" collection I have in the "blush" colorway. I stayed away from bright orange (that was Celtic Solstice) and magenta/fuchsia pink (that was my quandary last year with En Provence!) but I did include some fabrics from the 80's and 90's that one could probably call "mauve." Remember mauve? It was such a hot color, back in the day! Used as a neutral, just about everywhere. I miss my oversized mauve sweater!
In the middle is my silliness for the week. I grew up in Ohio and the OSU marching band still does "Script Ohio" every game, with the tuba dotting the i at the last minute. It's one of my earliest childhood memories, and so when I saw a video of it shared on Facebook, I ended up playing with my geese and taking a panorama photo instead of finishing all the geese. I still have about 20% of them to go. I'm enjoying the process a lot. It is so much fun to push the variety of fabrics. I could probably make another quilt in a different colorway, and still not make a big dent in my stash. I was thinking about the big trees silhouetted against the sunrise here in the Northwest, and maybe dark green would look great with the sunrise colors. Anyway, I still need to finish this week's clue. Thanks to all who stop by.
