April Colour Palette

Oh my goodness.  I don't know if I can bear the colour palette this month.  The colours themselves are interesting, and I think will make a lovely quilt.  But I almost wish I didn't know where the inspiration came from.  Can I make a quilt using colours drawn from moldy pie?  Yes, that's what I said.  The story is over here.  What do you think?  Could you ever look at a quilt made from these colours without seeing that pie, if you knew the source of the inspiration?

While I'm pondering that decision, here's another look at my March colour palette quilt.  After reading the comments, and taking the quilt to my local quilt shop, I've decided that the borders can stay just as they are.

Check out the other colour palette quilts on Judy's blog today (but watch out for that pie).

  1. Ha ha, I know what you mean! I have been printing the full photo with palette chips to hang over my cutting table for inspiration...but I'm not sure I can look at this photo all month long!

  7. Love your quilt....and I am also pondering over the April palette........it is really a stomach turner for sure.......the inspiration, not the colors! I have to say that I LOVE Vicki's sense of humor and her creativity. There are not that many people who would be inspired by a moldy pie!
