One of the things I like about sewing...














... is that it's such a good dose of colour therapy.

Wow! I'm interested to see what these awesome colourful patches are going to turn into. Looks very cool!

Melody said...

It is great colour therapy when created someone as talented as you, sweet Rachael

Linda said...

Great splashes of colour, Rachael! Where will they end up I wonder? Another amazing quilt no doubt. I think the excitement of putting colours together is what draws me to sewing and quilting. My cousin who is an artist commented that quilting is my art form as he knows I can't draw to save my life. I think he is right. I "draw" with coloured fabrics and get an enormous amount of pleasure from doing that. Great therapy too! Your post was a bright start to a very grey Northern Hemisphere Sunday morning. Thank you.

Karen said...

Oh yes!!!!! For me its all about the colours. I would find it very hard to contain myself to one or two colours.

You certainly can't feel blue when you have that much colour around you. (Pardon the pun) I wonder what you are up to now?

Jenni Mills said...

Amen to that ... and you certainly have some bright hues there to cheer you up.

pompom said...

What an explosion of colour! They look great but my favourites are all the blues. Wonder where this will end up? Something wonderful and original no doubt Rachael.

Beautiful and the world certainly needs a bit of colour right now :-)

Serena @ Sewgiving said...

Isn't it just! Are these to be new curtains or have you started a new quilt?

Jeneta said...

I love them all! They are so vibrant and happy. I don't think I'll ever finish all my projects; I see these wonderful blogs and want to start making some of my own immediately!!

Must have been lots of fun picking all those colours together playing with fabric is the best. Can't wait to see what you end up doing with them all!

A goal I set for myself this year was to work more with scraps...your post here inspired me! Thanks! Mind if I refer to this post in my blog when I share my travels as "a non-scrappy quilter learns to use scraps"?
