May Colour inspiration


Lately, I’ve been falling in love with this wonderful pink, yellow and orange colour palette. I have been working on some new designs and this palette features heavily in my drawings.

We are having what is starting to look like a really delayed spring. Winter hung on far too long, and now, while the snow is long gone, it has been very wet and cold despite being the middle of May already. Being northerly as we are, we don’t plant most things in the garden until around Victoria Day, but even so, it doesn’t look like it’ll be planting weather until closer to June. 

So if nature isn’t giving me my spring flowers, I’m just going to have to design quilts in those colours at least.

I also have a secret project in the works that came out of one of my doodling sessions, that uses this colour scheme. I can’t share any details about the project for a while yet, but I can share the fabrics I picked up for it. Doesn’t it look wonderful?
