spectrum

What's this? Trying to knock out the entire color week in one post?
Why, no. This is inspiration for the quilt I'm working on. It all started with a trip to the local quilting shop. Browsing through the books, I came upon a pattern that got me thinking.
The pattern was called Box of Crayons. It was a strip quilt with rows of color laid out like so many layers of a rainbow. It looked easy and colorful, and I thought: That's it! Directly afterwards, I began seeing this particular pattern everywhere (does that happen to you too?)
Amazing things happen when you start to wrap your mind around an idea. Can you believe I found this at the flea market yesterday? Luckily I had a camera and didn't have to drag the thing home....torn and color - run, but beautifully hand stitched with love, probably a gift. And she only wanted $3 for it!
But no, no, not quite what I have in mind. Remember the piles? They have been substantially reduced. And even thought I should be knitting on that darn poncho, I must say I've made pretty good progress on something that I hope will become a treasure.
Just a peek though! Must get back to work now...
