This isn't quilt related at all, except that the colors in this photo would make a pretty quilt, but we're having a spectacular thunder and lightning display right now. I was lucky to get this shot a few minutes ago and just wanted to share it with you all.

LOL - I guess I've already made the quilt! Didn't realize how close they were in color until I saw the pictures side by side in Photoshop.

Great shot of the lightning, Kate. And your quilt is wonderful. May I ask the name of your pattern, or is this one of your creations?

RE: OT - Lightning

It's a creation. I used a jelly roll (2.5" strips) and a layer cake (10" squares) in the batik set called Creamcicle. I think i added one or two more matching batiks I already had. I made HSTs out of all the layercake squares, then added 2 borders of the strips to each HST. I was as random as I could be with the whole process. Then I used a design wall to put them together, using any part of the block to bring out a pattern. I love the "nesting squares" effect. It took a lot of shuffling and then standing back to make it work. I did it at Retreat last year! Everyone pitched in with suggestions about the layout, but Jennifer played a big part! It turned into one of the fun latenite projects.

That's very impressive. I think you all did a wonderful job. I can't wait to participate in one of the retreats. Maybe next year.

Too funny about the photo colors and the quilt colors...how coincidental is that? Both...photo and quilt are beautiful!!!

I recall precariously standing on the folding chair re-arranging these blocks, and re-arranging them again and again....LOL...I think I'm packing a folding step stool this year.

Lois...mark your calendar now so we all get to meet next year!

Kate, Fabulous picture and quilt! Glad you were able to enjoy the lightening, not get zapped. I skipped swimming one day this week due to lightening here.
