Design Wall Monday


Last night I looked at my blank design wall and decided that I should pull out my Color Palette Challenge project and do a little bit on it so I could have something to post about today.  I've been quilting and knitting this week, trying not to start a new project.  But I had this one all planned out and ready to start.  (Click the button on the left for more info.)  And once I started, I didn't want to stop.  Understand why I didn't want to start anything new and shiny???

When I printed off this month's palette, I knew I wanted to make a bag for my Kindle with strips out of a bag of strips I had bought at a quilters sale and appliques from GO! dies that I hadn't used yet.   I love the little wall hanging on the bird package so I am kind of going with that.  I wondered if my color choices are a bit too far from what Vicki had chosen.  Then I look again and again and I decided that this is what I have, this is what I am going to use.  Sometimes I just have to make the tough decisions in the quilting room.  LOL

To see other fabulous projects, visit Judy L.  I love Monday mornings is Blogland.


****Monday PM, the bag is finished and shown off here.

Your birds are great! The color palette is a starting point. You interpret it however it works for you!

How fun this looks! Sometimes we just HAVE to start another new project. It's the way of the quilter. There's no getting around it!

I think your colour match is awesome considering it's all from stash! Way to go!
