How many times have you walked into a quilt shop or thumbed through a magazine and seen a quilt you “have” to make? It calls your name and sings your song. You love the colors, the design, and the fabrics. So you search for the exact fabrics, but alas, they are no longer on the quilt shop shelves. Not to be thwarted, you search for the exact shade of red, green, and purple. Neither are these to be had! Don’t give up in frustration. You can still make your dream quilt. I dare you to re-color.
In the September 7 post my “Fruehlingzeit” quilt is pictured. All red, pink, pale blue and fresh green.
See how my friend Gina R. re-colored the quilt with purple, teal and gold. Just lovely!
Think outside of the prescribed crayon box . . . dare to re-color! I think you will discover that you love your rendition of the quilt just as much as the sample or picture that inspired you to make it.
