Not really, but I just returned from a family reunion in Zion National Park in Southern Utah. This was just after the rainstorm, and the Watchman Mountain was reflected in a puddle. It is glorious waking up to, and going to sleep to this sight, as our campground is just below its colorful beauty.
Not only was the place beautiful and with wonderful people, which were made all the better when I discovered that an in-law (the wife of one of the young cousins) loves to quilt! I dragged out the quilt I had on my sleeping bag to show her. “Brights,” she said. She likes the Reproduction fabrics, a more subdued palatte than the one below. I keep this quilt in the car as it’s smaller. It was really cold that first night (43 degrees) so I was glad I had brought it along.
This was a mystery quilt done by my guild, and I had a stash of fabrics from Me and My Sister Designs, which all worked together just fine. I have never named this one, but generally refer to it as “the bright mystery quilt.”
True confession: I generally HATE mystery quilts. I’ve done several and I feel totally constrained by not knowing how the fabrics will work together, or where the darks/lights/colors will end up. Some of the rows in the above quilt worked okay, and some didn’t. Maybe that’s why I keep this in my car!
