I really need to get around to sandwiching the "A Burst of Color in a Neutral World" quilt. It will be going to a dear friend who is building a new home. She is a "neutral" kind of gal and everyone has been telling her not to go too neutral. I just tell her to do it the way she want. If she wants to add color later on, she can paint.
In the meantime to keep busy, I have started this quilt.
I have had this pattern for 4 or 5 years now and almost talked myself out of making it. Then I decided I was in the mood to applique and that I have so many small scraps that I need to use. Sure enough, I had enough different colors of blue to cut out the background blocks. And I have the Santa and Sleigh block appliqued and a couple of others ready to applique.
Colors are definitely not true in this picture. I took it at night in a very poorly lit room. I figure I'll work on it until I get tired of it and then put it up for later. Who knows, maybe I'll finish it within the next few months.
