On the Design Wall

I can't believe May is almost over! Another semester has ended, and things at work have calmed down a bit. I look forward to having a little more time in my studio.
Here's what I am working on right now. Notice the paint chip set in the corner of the design wall below. I am making this quilt for our long time friends who finally decided to get married. When I asked about "colors", this is what they gave me.


Here is the very bright batik quilt in progress with about half the blocks done so far. A simple square in a square design. I don't think the nuances of the batiks are as visible in this picture as they are in person. Bright, I know, but I think it is exactly what they are hoping for.

Jenny that is going to be a wonderful quilt. I love how you have combined the chosen colors!

It's delicious! How smart of them to give you chips instead of just naming the colors.

You've got a lovely studio. The colors on the quilt are my favorites as well - beautiful!
