Summer Hues

Fresh as a daisy summer blue.  It is our summer here in Australia and nothing cools you down more than seeing a fresh blue in the garden.  Forget about cosy reds and yellows!  Think about this combination of delicious green and blues.

A gathering of color

 Aren't the colors of Nature amazing!  Settle on your color scheme, gather a few bits and bobs and off you go.  These colors inspired me to design the cool and pretty purple Butterfly Garden quilt shown below


Butterfly Garden Quilt top

I did not want to use a complicated design for this quilt as some of the fabrics were quite detailed and too gorgeous to cut up!  So I came up with the giant log cabin idea with occasional squares to break up the lines.  Completed with Madame Butterfly flitting across the top.  Not finished yet.  More pics coming soon. 




 

Book Nook
