Painter's Palette Blog Hop: Day 7

We're continuing to embrace everything red, white and blue! 
We sent 8 designers a bundle of red, white and blue Painter's Palette Solids to play with. 

The colors? White, Claret, Crimson, Tomato, Patriot, French Blue and River.
 Between now and July 4th, we'll be sharing a variety of inspiring fabric art made by them--tutorials, show-and-tell with a peek into the design process, and more! 

Today's project comes from Cindy of Live a Colorful Life. She uses some of the basic building blocks of quilting--half square triangles--to make her Streamers quilt, which creates the feel of Old Glory's stripes rippling in the wind. 

Cindy says: "Several months ago, I had designed a single-color quilt. The center part of the quilt reminded me of ribbons blowing in the wind, and I thought it would make a beautiful red, white and blue quilt." 

Head over to Cindy's blog to find the tutorial to make this beautiful quilt!
