My Color Palette

Thursday, January 19th - I am honored to be part of a color study on Victoria Findlay Wolfe's blog - Bumble Beans; click HERE to read all about it.  This is my color palette, bold, bright and fun.
 I often find myself using the same three colors - red, royal blue and lime green in my work.  Tea Fairy House - 2011 - Quilting Arts Magazine Oct/Nov 2011 issue "Put a little zip in your art quilts."

  7. Thank you so much for all of your positive comments about my color palette. I use commercial fabrics, hand-dyes and Batiks. I must confess that Hoffman Batiks are my most favorite fabrics to use in my work.
