By the time I got home thirty minuets later, dark skies had started to form leaving me no time to get pictures of my finished dandelion block. UGH! But I guess I can't complain about mother nature too much. As I watched the kids proudly march by me in formation, I started to tear up as my daughter marched by. This was the first time I have ever seen her march in formation. She is growing up too fast. All I could see as the kids went by was small ghosts of their kindergarten selves, carrying instruments that where way to big for them. So I guess I understand how mother nature can cry so quickly. Maybe she just feels my pain.
Enough of that. So I spent most of the evening working on July's Aurifil Mini by Ebony Love called Jungle Gym. Her version has lots of bright colors; yellow, purple, red-orange, and green. One of the fabrics even has cute little elephants on it. These are not my normal color pallet choices so I admit I was having trouble figuring our my strategy. My first thought was something in blacks and whites. Then I stumbled onto this great turquoise fabric with what reminded me of white firework bursts with pink in the middle. Then my vision was complete. Whites, blacks, hot pinks and turquoise would be my color pallet.
|Note to self: work on the whole cloth block. It feels neglected.|
As I pieced the blocks together, I kept thinking man this quilt reminds me of something. Then it hit me these are the same colors I used in The Death Quilt. Instead of reverting back to the tears I just kind of smiled and thought, these are great colors.

I didn't get all of the blocks finished. I still have eight more to go, but I should have the top completed in the next few days.
I hope you will stop back later and check it out. I also hope to show some pictures of my block for the play Quilters being performed by our local theater group. Until next time, I hope everyone has a quilt-y day.
