Citrus Triangles

A sneak peek... some pretty
I just finished piecing the second and final baby quilt made with the blocks from block-a-palooza.  I'd show it to you, but I folded it and its batting and put it in the car to keep it away from the cat army.  I did this before I took a picture so no picture until it is finished tomorrow.  I'd bring it in to take a picture, but that is just what the cat army would want me to do.

To make up for the lack of a picture on the finished product, here are the fabrics I'm planning to use in my next project - a half square triangle quilt.  I'm using three colors from Patricia Bravo's Nature Elements line, which is a fabric line I'm a little obsessed with at the moment.  I find myself going on-line several times a day so I can touch her fabrics on the screen with a mangled claw while whispering, "precious, my precious."  I own several  most colors already and am thinking of buying a few more.  The quilt will be three of her citrus colors with two Kona solid greens and, of course, Kona White for the other half of the HST.  I'm debating whether I should add a Kona orange to the mix - I'm thinking School Bus or Tangerine, but I don't know.  I don't want it to become too orange and I don't want to detract from the Nature Elements fabrics either.  Plus as much as a like the Kona solids, they don't glow like my precious here does.  Any thoughts?


  1. "...but that is just what the cat army would want me to do." I'm going to be LOL'ing about that one all day!! thx

  2. Cat armies rule! Hubby moved some clothes in 'his' room while rearranging and cleaning. Came downstairs for lunch, and was actually surprised when he went back upstairs and there was a cat sleeping in the middle of his sweaters. He was surprised? Come on now.

    I think I'm the only quilter who has yet to use Kona solids. But then, I'm just one of those 'dumb' quilters! I like the colors you've chosen to work with.
