Sunday Stash: The Shades of Cyan

Are you confused when people talk about aqua, teal, jade, turquoise, topaz or cyan?? This is one of my favorite color ranges at the moment. Cyan is actually one of three of the secondary colors in the RGB color models. All these colors can be considered a tint or shade of Cyan. I thought the shades were well represented in this wikipedia page.

I decided to take a pull of my Kona Solids and my prints to show you all, as a base.

Finish it up Friday{05.07.2013}: Baby Quilt top

First off, it’s my sister’s birthday today. Happy Birthday Sis.

The other big news today is that I finished my first baby quilt top (that now makes 1 x mini quilt, and 1 x twin quilt top)…yippee !!!

Simply Stars
I love V and Co. “Simply” charm packs. They are so bright and colorful. The designs are very geometric but still whimsical, perfect for a baby quilt. The other great thing about this quilt, is it came together really quickly. Each star block took me about 30 minutes, and each 9 block took about 15 minutes. I love that it was so quick and easy.

After much practice, I think I finally have the knack for matching square blocks. I am very proud how aligned everything is. I was able to take some quick photos this afternoon which is very lucky as we have had thunderstorms/rain every afternoon for the last two weeks. Today is perfect weather!!!

Mosaic Contest @ Stitched in Color

I have never entered in a mosaic contest, however, I just saw this contest at Stitched in Color. I love everything about color; mixing it up and pulling fabrics from different lines to produce a wonderful palette to work with,  this gives me that creative outlet.

The contest labelled Sweet Contrary, it is about using warm vs cold colors. It is sponsored by Lark Cottons. I decided to give it a try and here is my first entry….

My first fabric choice was the Joel Dewberry Aviary 2, Sparrows – Lilac. I love this fabric and I based the rest of my choices to go with this piece. I chose green and teal for my cold colors and the lilac/plum and yellow for my warm colors. Lastly, I added grey’s as a neutral.

My second entry was based on the colors used for this Buqshan hotel in Khaila – Yemen (Photo by Eric Lafforgue). It was one of the first images I added to my pinterest design photo. The vibrancy is breath-taking.
