    Idle time coloring

    I have this pattern called Surprisingly Red that is, obviously, in reds. :-) I want one in browns and blues for my living room. I have the fabric already and I'm chomping at the bit to work on it but I have two other quilts in the queue that I need to do as gifts.

    Just using MS Paint and picking up the colors of the fabrics to color in the major parts to see how it will look. I really like it!

    Pam............those color's are going to be gorgeous together. I think you have done a great job picking them out. I hope that you will keep sharing pictures with us, as you get started.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    Love your color choices and envy your talent and bravery to do that beautiful pattern. I could only dream! I have a collection of browns and blues that I have gathered over a year that I want MY quilt made from. Pattern pending!

    One of the quilts is pretty quick and easy. All the fabric is washed and ready, torn into strips a tad wider than I will be cutting so I don't have to wrestle with huge pieces to cut. The Japanese fans are in progress and the center is framed and squared. The second quilt is a little more involved, this one http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...r-t220119.html but I don't think it will be very hard to do either. I just want them out of the way so I can really concentrate on mine.
