Mini Vacation

I took a little mini vacation with my youngest.
We were away two nights.
There was a tiny bit of time for sewing.
Not too, too much.
 
After all...
There were bikes to ride....
Hikes to take...
and....
 some serious reading going on...
*note the book peeking out under the table. ;)

I've now joined some blocks together.
Love the peaceful vibe of all that blue and white!
But...
Maybe it needs a POP of red!
 

Hmmm.....
I'm going to fold it up and let it
****PERCOLATE!!!****
 
Sometimes that's JUST what a quilt needs!

  2. Hi Beth,
    I'm wondering if you meant perculate... mixing water and coffee into a yummy cuppa... sort of a steeping like for tea... marinating the flavors of the colors together? I always think every quilt needs red - my favorite color. In your case, I'm not so sure. It looks perfect to me.
    Hugs

  4. Love the quilt -- how about a soft orange for your pop? Also love your mini quilt studio on wheels!

  5. Oh yes I am a strong believer in letting a quilt percolate (to become lively or active) sometimes on the second look it will tell you what it needs...sometimes :0)

    I know you'll do what makes this one looks best as always.

    Happy Sewing

  7. I'm thinking a small red rectangle in a border of blue and white. Not too much. The blue and white really are so calming.

  12. A fun two days, and now back at the quilt blocks. I love a simple two-color quilt and think they are very effecting. This one is soothing. But if you think it needs a pop, red would do it! Will await the pics to see what percolates.
