Blueberry Hill

My January Color Challenge piece is done!  Here’s the palette we were given by Vicki:

And here’s my interpretation:

If ever we have a day in Texas when the winds aren’t blowing 90 miles an hour, I’ll take it outside and get a better picture.  Also, sometime tomorrow I hope to have the pattern available if anyone wants to make it.  It isn’t real quick and depending on your definition of easy or difficult, it isn’t too hard.  There are a lot of flying geese, which I find kinda time consuming.  It’s 79″ x 99″ and I think it was a lot of fun to make.

    It’s great, Judy… it seems to me you’re ‘spot on’ with your interpretation of the color palette. (And, to let you know, my Pieced Borders book came today. Yea!)

    Very pretty!! Have you come up with a name for it yet?
    Good luck getting a day without wind. I swear, these plains states have wind 90% of the time….or it at least seems that way.

    Great looking quilt – an alternate name could be Texas Bluebonnets since it reminded me of a big field of those with an occasional red wildflower in there.

    And the winds in TX and OK will always blow hard, except for in the summer in really hot weather, then it is calm. We joke to people who visit the lake that the average wind is 15mph. It’s either nothing or blowing 30!

    Besides the beautiful colors, your quilt design has so many great diagonal lines, movement, and interesting focus parts. Just wonderful! I love it.

    This is such a great quilt and I love the name too.
    I have a question…how do you make flying geese? You must have a quickie way considering how many there are in the quilt.

    Judy – that’s lovely! I initially thought I would prefer it with the other green you picked out, but the one you used goes really well.
