I hope you don't mind me saying that the colours remind me of a nasty bruise! But aren't they gorgeous? I think I'd rather have a quilt in these colours than a bruise.

I did a class with you in Houston. I hope your sore throat improved quickly. I really enjoyed the class - probably more than you did.

These colors remind me of royalty. Royal Robes, dresses, etc. Beautiful. I love shades of purple and yellow was my favorite color growing up.

Beautiful colours!

Anita in Florida said...

It's a sunset over the ocean in Cancun. We saw the most spectacular color displays; don't know if it was the time of year, weather conditions or what, but it was a quite a show. Thanks for the chance to win these lovely fabrics.

Coneflowers waving in the summer sun is what these colors remind me of. Love anything of color.

Jean said...

Once again, another beautiful array of color! I just love those shades of purple!

Barbara Strobel Lardon said...

Had to laugh at Liz's comment as we have all had one of these turning yellow in the end. However it is also the colors in an iris and it would be wonderful to use them in this way.

Jane said...

Beautiful fabrics. My stash has no flash!

Michigoose said...

Ah! This reminds me a a sunset I once saw....and an eggplant which wasn't perfectly colored. Love the word "Aubergine" and that was the first thing which came to mind. Thanks for giving me a smile!

Debi said...

a beautiful sunset, love the combination!

The beautiful colors of fabrics makes me immediately think of pansies! I can just picture it! The fabrics are beautiful and anyone would be fortunate to find these suddenly in their stash to make a quilt from.

Congratulations to AnnMarie on winning the fabrics yesterday.

Wow! I forgot about the BIG give away! What a treasure trove that looks to be!

Sharing...I suppose if you haven't tried it before, you could feel like you will have less if you share what you have. That's especially true when you have very little. Will I have enough? What if I've shared it with someone and then come up short for my own needs?

But in my experience sharing gives me far more than I give someone else. They just get a thing, whether it's money or an item, but I am blessed to GET joy for having shared, along with the comfort of knowing that the other person has something that they really needed or wanted!

There is no amount of money in the world that can buy joy, which rich people could probably tell you. There is also no feeling so wonderful and precious. It's what we feel when we fall in love, make a new friend, and see our own child for the very first time. And all we have to do to have it is to share with someone who has a need! I think it could be more addictive than chocolate...

These colors remind me of a pot of pansies.

They remind me of Cosmos flowers.

What does this color combination remind you of? My friend Sabrina who would LOVE something from these fabrics. This has always been her preferred color scheme.

Ohhhh...spring and the first crocus to push through the snow still on the ground....leading the way to a chorus of beautiful daffodils and tulips!

Norma Riehm said...

Spring time Pansey's. This grouping looks cheerful and refreshing.

JustCallMeElle said...

You gotta love a great gradation!

This one reminds me of an Iris. I had one once that went from the yellow to the brownie magenta, but not to the real magenta or purple. I think it was supposed to go to a 'chocolate' but maybe the soil did not have the right acidity or lack of to get it there. None the less... this is Iris to me!

Can I ask - what fabric do you use for your dyeing? You seem to get such vibrant colors that are not always apparent in hand dyes. Also - do you use just water from the tap, or distilled/bottled/other?

Leslie McNeil of MarveLes Art Studios said...

Can't help but fall in love... with COLOR. Thank you Frieda.

Diana Ramirez said...

The colors remind me of my irises in the spring.

Connie said...

The colors definitely remind me of the irises growing in my garden. Beautiful graduation of colors and congrats to yesterday's winner!

Janet said...

The colors remind me of spring flowers. Just beautiful! Thank you for the giveaway!

Linda said...

Pansies - and I would give it to my friend Deb who decorates with pansies - and uses them in her quilts.

Lois Jarvis said...

Great colors!!! Hope I win it!!!

MooseStash Quilting said...

They remind me of my favorite colorways! :-) Many would say LOUD like me!

Zizophora said...

I was going to say crocus too! The colors are beautiful. When I shared this website link with my Mom, I told her about your book too! The next time she visits, we're going to try fabric dyeing -- it will be so much fun.

Michele said...

My stash is never in danger of being colorless, BUT that doesn't stop me from acquiring new fabric. I am a little short on yellow, I just realized; I wonder why that is???

Julia in NZ said...

I am intrigued by how those two colours make such interesting and complex looking colours in the middle of the gradation.

Laura said...

Hello- You are so industrious and talented with all your beautiful colored fabrics!
About sharing- Joy is the greatest commodity and when you share it it multiplies!
Purple to yellow reminds me of petrified wood which you can see at Geronimo's trading post in Holbrook AZ. =)
Thank you for sharing your photos!

Janice PD said...

I never met a color I didn't like...and if it isn't my favorite one of my BFF quilting friends get to share. After all, thats what quilty friends are for.

Judi said...

it reminds me of my 19 year old daughter - spunky!

Mystica said...
