Game 2:

Tequila Sunrise

I’ve always wanted to design a quilt around the soft range of colors from a sunset, tequila sunrise was born out of this desire but constrained with the guiding influence of choosing colors that I do not typically work with. Orange has always been a difficult color for me to embrace but so many influential people in my life live in these vibrant warm tones.


Lake Tahoe

From top: Apple Green, Island, Pale Aqua, Gulfstream, Waterfall, River, Pewter, Gray
My bundle was inspired by a photo I took while visiting Lake Tahoe last fall. The photo was of a row of colorful paddle boards lined up on the shore near a dock.  I chose all the colors directly from the paddle boards, beautiful shades of blues, green and gray.

Vote by leaving a comment below with the name of the bundle you are voting for.
