23 Mar Winter Skies and Inspiration
I took these pictures last winter (that would be in early 2009 – I live in Michigan and do not yet count this winter as over). The sunny days of winter always cheer me up and make the winter seem less dreary.
I was inspired to create a quilt that had shades of the blue sky with some white for the snow and clouds and some browns and blacks for the trees.
The quilt was not a success – it did not convey what I had intended. I quilted it hoping it might improve, but no. So it sits in one of my quilt piles. I’m not sure what I will do with it, if anything.
I am sure, however, that I will return to this inspiration and color scheme again sometime. Hopefully, the next time I’ll get it right. I’ll be sure to show you when I do.
