Potluck Picnic Quilt
Cute beyond belief!

Creative color inspiration!


I had a conversation with a customer the other day ... she said she felt so intimidated by choosing colors for her quilts. So as we were talking, I told her she needed to just take a shopping trip and see what was being offered in the gift and flower shops. This is a good time of year to do that as everything seems to be bright and fresh. With that in mind, I whipped out my camera and snapped some pix at Kowalski's when I stopped in for juice and milk. You know my motto ... there's inspiration everywhere ... just open your eyes and look around! Ready?

I have enamelware jewelry from the 70's in these exact same colors! Ahhh ... the hippie years.

I love how the crispness of the white really charges up the colors!

Calming and relaxing.

I love anything patriotic ... brings to mind picnics and green grass and Summer!

Perfectly color coordinated juice bottles ... someone in marketing did good!

These have sort of an Amy Butlerish look to them.

Fiesta! Salsa! The screen printed veggies look fabulous!

Flowers are always the best for looking for color combo. The garden centers are going to be open soon ... what do you think we'll find this season? More inspiration, maybe?
