Quilts and Nature

Kathie has been doing a "study" of brown on her blog and I had suggested a combination of brown and blue. After taking down Christmas quilts and decorations I hung this little basket quilt up, then on my way back into town this morning I shot a quick photo of the brown and blue of Central Oregon. I like them both!!!




Sorry for all of you buried in snow. I cant help myself when I see the beautiful mountains!!

  1. I have wanted a basket quilt collection for ages. I like the block design of yours. I do have several quilts made up or in the works with baskets.

  2. Is the blue and brown basket quilt a vintage quilt? It is really nice looking if it is a reproduction.
    Nature never fails to inspire, does it? :)

  4. nice shot of Central Oregon! I'm up here in Seattle and we've had some stunning weather in the last few days. Been meaning to tell you I am copying your Candy Stix quilt as a graduation present for an art major. It has every scrap in the basket in it. Thanx for such a great idea!

  8. You're lucky you're not buried in snow and have some colour there. The basket quilt is lovely, I'm getting quite fond of them and it has a great colour scheme.

  10. I like the basket block variation. Seems like everything goes with brown--guess cause it's a neutral (according to Clinton and Stacey on What Not to Wear).
