June color challenge

I managed to whip together a little something for this month's Color Palette challenge. The inspiration photo was beautiful, and just this weekend I realized that I have the absolutely perfect fabric to match this palette:

Seriously - could there be any single fabric MORE perfect for this palette??
This delight has been in my stash for years - my husband wears a terrific summer shirt from this fabric, and I have been saving the remaining yardage for a "one-block wonder" kaleidoscoping quilt. Obviously I don't have time to complete that project in the two days remaining in June, but I also found a bag of six inch circles that I cut from this fabric for some mysterious quite-unremembered reason. I used a few of those to make a cute little coin purse.

I don't think I mentioned the exciting news that my project for last month was drawn (randomly) as the winner, for which I received some beautiful hand-dyed fat quarters from Vicki Welsh. Thank you so much, Judy and Vicki, for organizing this terrific project - it has been a real skill builder for me!


  1. What fabulous fabric! It would be perfect for a one-block wonder too. Love the idea of a little coin purse--I might just make one like this for myself!

    1. Isn't it a delight? The coin purse took less than an hour, and having used it for a weekend, I can say that it's a very handy pattern - while you're combing through for exact change you can push the coins from one side to the other to keep them sorted.

  2. That looks like some cool fabric.
