Day 240 – Peaches, pears, grapes & plums

As promised : )

As promised : )

After a week of pink and/or red I thought a break was in order!

This is one of my latest finds from the Alameda Flea market. In very good condition, and with six napkin friends, it’s one of the biggest cloths I’ve ever found. I think

Day 235 – Cherry blossom breakfast

Bountiful blossoms

Bountiful blossoms

I found this cloth many, many years ago in a pile of “extras”, the owner thought it was too faded for anyone to want but because it had no holes or stains it wasn’t quite a “cutter”. I don’t really think anything has faded, it’s just not as bright as

Day 231 – Periwinkle keys

Keys!

Keys!

I found this at my friend Tim’s shop, The Steffen Collection, in Martinez. The coolest thing about this is one half the table it white on the periwinkle background, and the other half is the reverse!

Day 227 – Rainbow Green

Another plaid!

Another plaid!

I gotta say, I love plaids!

And while this is some serious plaid, it’s also a little disconcerting – I keep trying to find the straight lines in this and get dizzy!

It's not easy being green…

Here I was all smarmy about doing green!

Day 226 – Rainbow Yellow

Sunny yellow!

Sunny yellow!

Sometimes you open up your box (or bag) of quilt fabrics and a piece you last saw when you bought it jumps out at you like an old friend. That’s this piece! I can’t even remember what the original plan was for this – I try really hard to at
