WIP Wednesday: Cool Blues

I’ve been doing some designing and planning and fabric-buying this week! I’ve got some fun things up my sleeve, including new quilt-along in the works for Bernina’s We All Sew website. It’s been a while since I’ve had occasion to do some hard-core fabric selecting, and it feels pretty good. : )

Also, I don’t know if it’s the change of seasons or what, but lately I’m feeling a definite shift in my color preferences. Does that ever happen to you? After at least a couple of years of being obsessed with all things aqua and teal, a few months ago I decided I needed to push myself to embrace new color palettes. I was determined not to rely on aqua quite so much. Aqua was my color crutch. But just the act of making that goal seems to have flipped a switch in my brain, because suddenly I’m loving cooler blues and darker blues. Kona Hyacinth and Blue Jay are really getting my attention lately.

But it’s still all about blue, of course. I guess I haven’t had that much of a shift!

Okay, so what are you working on this week? Let’s see it!
