Tania @iamgingerq
From top: Salmon, Lipstick, Green Sheen, Lemon Ice, Shell Pink, Pale Silver, Pale Aqua, Poseidon

She wore a dress of shell pink, applied her salmon lipstick and arranged a flower her pale silver hair.  She sipped from her lemon ice as she waited for Poseidon, watching as the setting sun cast a green sheen over the pale aqua ocean.


From top: Midnight, Aqua, Island, White, Yarrow, Daredevil, Poppy Red, Espresso
Hullabaloo means uproar or commotion which is certainly part of March Madness and this color palette. I wanted to use colors that challenge traditional notions of what goes together in a quilt. I also wanted to create an underdog—a palette that just might take the brackets even though at first look it appears that these fabrics would never play together let alone make a champion team.
