Color? Just stop in!

The world in springtime is a wonderfully colorful place, and nowhere this week was this probably more true than here in Paducah. The dogwoods are in full bloom and being shown off all through town, but they are a just a tease for all the quilt happenings.

Quilts can be found in the big AQS Quilt Week show, but if this is not enough there are literally more quilt exhibits and more vendors in almost every nook, corner and show size facility (and there is a bunch).
Having color in mind while wandering this week I could not help but enjoy the up-close and in person chance to see soooooo many quilts -- But, it was while wandering through the vendors at the Rotary Club Quilt Show that I found my favorite. While far from new, it was the Cherrywood Fabric booth where I found I just wanted to stand there and soak in the color and amazing use of that color.

I just had to ask if I could take a few pictures to share with you their line of solid fabrics
solid yes, flat looking NOOOO
each color is rich in intensity, and depth -- they seem to glow.
When asked if I could share, they said YES...WooHoo, so I hope you enjoy all the color!

I fell in love with a pack of 'new colors' that just seemed to call my name while I was there, and it wasn't 'til I got home that I understood why.....Why? they are the colors in my head from my recent trip to the Caribbean. Yummy yellows, oranges, greens and of course a couple Caribbean blues. The island houses quilt that has been brewing in my mind might be a bit closer to reality with this packet of fun....

But not today - today I'll be demo'ng how to make Woolies and signing books.
