Returning to some favourites...

Well, favourite colours that is!

It seems I am drawn to this colour palette...

  
Bricolage - a sampler made to my own 

design back in 2012


and "Sanctuary" 



 made for a friend in 2018


And of course my latest woollen projects

Viridian jumper just finished

Yarn waiting for a pattern

now this....


 It is only 30" by 48", at this stage.

so I'll need to go back to block building!


And then to decide if I want to use this layout of go 

for something more 'radical'!

Then it would certainly be a "Wild Goose Chase"!

Happy sewing!

  1. The Sanctuary quilt is gorgeus!
    I always seem to be drawn to a more warm palette, though I love greens and blues together!

  3. These are all so pretty. The flying geese fabrics are so pretty (and remind me of what those beautiful birds leave behind, hahaha).

  4. You have great taste in colors . . . I love the same color scheme and have a quilt in the works that I need to finish this year. Thanks for inspiring me to get back to it.

  6. How fun to see your go-to colors - mustard, teal, chartreuse. Your colors are pretty and very "you." I think we all have some of this going on when we're choosing quilt fabrics, and making clothes. I'm sure most people who know me could name my colors too. I think we all need a shake-up every once-in-a-while, to make us pick something outside our comfort zone. Though don't make me sew with my "ick" color: brown. Blah!

    I especially admire that jumper/sweater that you knitted up so quickly. I'm sure it will be used sooner rather than later!

  8. One of my favourite colour combinations too. I've used it a fair bit over the years for baby boy quilts and I like to wear those colours.

  9. I love those colors too. long ago, when my mother made me a quilt, I selected "Storm at Sea" pattern but picked out pinks, thinking it would be more feminine, as I was rather a tom-boy. For all these years, I wish I could have been brave enough to have selected those very colors which I love.

  11. Beautiful show of some beautiful color choices, Susan. I'm glad you are back in your happy zone, creating as you want to. It can be so hard to make for others, even if we are happy to do so. Welcome back to your Creative Zone!

  13. I so enjoy these colors as well and I should use it more often! I have a sampler quilt that looks very much like yours with aqua and green with white sashing— such a fresh color scheme!

  14. Love your colour combos, the chartreuse is a favourite of mine!

  15. You do know what colors inspire you and your creations reflect that, each one so beautifully made and finished. Choosing colors is not my forte and I really admire those quilters who seem to do so quite naturally.

  16. That is a beautiful colour combination so no surprise it has been repeated over the years. Love how the latest project is progressing.

  17. These colours are great! They feel vibrant and alive. If a colour combo speaks to you, then use it as often as you like.
