So Not Like Me…

I usually create quilts that are more traditional in nature.  I prefer muted tones with soft, “muddy” blends.  But the book Convergence Quilts by Ricky Tims caught my eye, so I bought myself a Christmas present.  I had to give it a try!

Blue Lily

This is called “Blue Lily.”  The colors here aren’t true.   The green is more of a lime green, and the lily needs some leaves that will drape over the border and fill in like a day lily.   DSC02353

The lily is one that grows in front of our fence in the side yard.  I shot the photo last summer, tweaked the colors and printed it on fabric.  I kinda like how the experiment turned out!  It’s not a large quilt, but I think I will like it when it’s done!


Changing the subject:  OK, God is entitled to change His mind.  But I’m not very happy with it right now.  We went from a severe snow storm last week, and today all the snow is disappearing in the blink of an eye.  It’s 53 degrees outside, raining, thundering, and very heavy fog.  Flood warnings are everywhere!  Glad I don’t live near a mountain or I might get washed away!  Cole Creek is rising… that’s bad enough!

  1. Dear Caron,TODAY the book I won with your generous giveaway arrives safely. I enjoyed it very much! I would like to give you my heartfelt THANKS. You are so beautiful inside and out. Yes, it will inspire me a lot to begin my own quilt.Warm greetings & Happy Holidays,Nihal PS – May be it seems unusual, a very late arrival. In fact it would not take so long. But the reason is that the country was in an official holidays for 10 days.


  2. Your Convergence turned out wonderfully! Love the added touch of your own lily!! Very nice! 😎I hope you have a more positive turn around in your weather there…
