My silent auction quilt for Selah Ranch

mary_c_gwMay 16, 2011

Well, the plan might possibly change, since there is a year to complete it.....

BUT I remembered Rebecca's (cannahavana's) quilt from several years ago. It was the Depression block, done it blues and tans. I loved it!! I will post a link to a thread with it below.

So, Rebecca, I hope you don't mind, but I am totally stealing that color combination and using the Depression block. My quilt will be larger - I think it needs to be at least full bed sized, and I may make it queen sized.

This quilt will need to have a broad appeal, and who doesn't have blues and tans, or can't make them work? I think this will work better than a more "colorful" quilt (since I have at least one friend telling me her "eyes bleed" looking at my designs).

Rebecca's blue/tan is the fourth post.

I love the blue and tan Depression quilt. If you are really careful with your color placement, you can make it look almost 3D, too.

And I love colorful quilts, buy your friend some sunglasses.

Aw, thanks Mary! That is the one I made for my husband for valentine's day last year. It hangs on my quilt rack in my living room (when not in use!).

I can't wait to see pictures when you're done!

I think it's a great choice! It will appeal to both men and women.

I have heard it said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! That quilt is well worth imitation!

Have fun with the process.

Mary - since I have at least one friend telling me her "eyes bleed" looking at my designs).....I'd take that as a huge compliment ~lol~
beverly - very funny comment "buy your friend some sunglasses". I am giving some quilts as gifts that are so very bright! Maybe I will include a pair of sunglasses with them. heehee

I enjoyed looking again at that thread about the Depression blocks. Rebecca's blue and tan quilt is one of my favorites. I agree, that is a great choice for the auction, blue and tan are very likable colors.

I'm really happy you all approve - especially Rebecca!

I just finished ordering a bunch of fabrics for the quilt, and I'm excited to get started on it.

I saved thwt picture of the Depression quilt too. Loved it when I first saw it and love it still. A friend recently asked me for an easy pattern that would look more complicated when it was completed and that's the one I showed her!
