Quilt + wind

Note to self:  don’t drag your husband + kids out to take quilt pictures on an extra windy day.   It will make everybody cranky and then you’ll have to buy them all donuts to make them happy again.

It’s much easier to take pictures inside.  I loosely picked the colors for this quilt from that Denyse Schmidt polka dot.  After many quilts in these colors I’ve yet to tire of this combo.

    Hehe, beautiful! I like the windy shot. :)

    LOL!!! Now I'm wishing I hadn't deleted all my windy-day quilt pics from last week. Gusts of up to 20 mph. To say the least I waited a day for some do-overs.

    Beautiful quilt – love your colors!

    I just have to say, I read lots of quilt blogs, and your color combos are pretty much always my favorites. They are always so happy. Just wanted you to know. :)

    Such a pretty quilt…adding the three dark green crosses was key, I'd say! Love it!!

    Love this!! My poor family is so sick of me taking pictures of quilts. (And my backyard neighbors think I'm crazy). I need to try more donuts.

  17. Sarah July 11, 2011 at 8:54 pm #

    Love the white with the green and blues! I always have to bribe my siblings to do quilt holding. "If you hold this up I'll give you bubblegum!"

    It really is a lovely quilt! So pleasing. I love hearing which print was your initial inspiration (especially since I have that same print). Sounds like an adventure for all!

  35. Amy Gibson July 12, 2011 at 6:29 am #

    Ah,yes, quilt wind. Although my hubby whines when he has to help me take pictures of quilts even when it's not windy. Sheesh. What I need is a maid servant!

  36. Barbara July 12, 2011 at 11:53 am #

    Can't wait to see how you quilt it (stippled..? hehe).

    We know our families love us when they help us with things like quilting.

    It's a beautiful combination of fabrics, fresh and cool. I love the windy shot, but also the indoor shot hanging from the clothespins.

  45. Bruna M. July 12, 2011 at 8:16 pm #

    Beautiful colors! I love the combination :)

  46. Carla July 12, 2011 at 8:18 pm #

    I'm a bit cranky, will you buy me donuts? 😉

    Love the quilt! The colors are perfect combo and it reminds me of the seashore.

  47. liz July 12, 2011 at 11:34 pm #

    I thought I was going to be original and tell you I love your colour combination. No wonder you want to keep using it. Oh well, it's obviously true.

  48. On A Hot Tin Roof July 13, 2011 at 3:07 am #

    that is gorgeous!

  49. Sue July 13, 2011 at 1:30 pm #

    You use a lot of white. Do you buy it by the bolt? What kind of white fabric do you use?
    Your quilts are always beautiful!

  50. Cheryl Arkison July 13, 2011 at 2:19 pm #

    Love that colour combo too! Working on one in that colourway myself.

  51. evamarie July 13, 2011 at 5:48 pm #

    It's beautiful! I love the freshness of the colours on white and the simplicity of the design. Another one on my to do list! Eva-Marie

  52. Sachiko July 19, 2011 at 5:05 am #

    I love love this quilt! I would love to make one for myself. :) Taking pictures of a quilt or my dresses (since I am the one wearing it) is always tricky too. Buying some donuts is a great idea. :)

  53. amandajean July 21, 2011 at 1:55 pm #

    It's gorgeous! Your color selection is spot on! I love the inspiration quilt, too.

  54. Sarah February 7, 2015 at 3:07 pm #
