Color surprises!

I’ve finally decided what I’m doing for my Crayon challenge and to my surprise, my color choices are quite a bit different than what I started with!

I’ve arranged and rearranged blocks and pieces of blocks, auditioning colors and arrangement. I’ve even worked in the colors orange and pink, which I  didn’t even

consider when I began choosing colors.

Orange seems to add warmth to the cool blue tones. I’ve chosen to use yellow, mostly orange, to rust for variation.

My friends in the office talked me into just trying a few blocks with pink. I know I made a funny face, but decided to try it anyway. To my surprise, pink added the sparkle and movement the quilt needed to bring out the New York Beauty block design!

I am also considering a border worked in with these blocks. What do you think?

The Editor, Jean, has challenged me to get it done for a late summer/fall issue of Love of Quilting. I think that’s just the challenge I need to do it.  Wish me luck!

Happy Quilting,

Diane , Assistant Editor
