So what do you do for “Fat Tuesday”? I’ve been cooking up a favorite, Crawfish Ettouffe. Not much quilting today. We lived in Louisiana for two very wonderful years. And there, gained a love of crawfish. Nothing quite like their local crawfish but I tried. Without green peppers in the house, I got a different look and taste with a different recipe. Not worth repeating, but great colors!
So, does food inspire your colors? What about holidays?
I need to dig out my Mardi Gras fabric and make a table runner.
#1 – Find color inspiration for quilts in food! TeeHee!
On to another quilt using my new tool, “Hex-a-ma-jig”. Baby (or tumbling) Blocks! It was fun to play with Peppered Cottons.
And speaking of solid fabrics…I got to see this wonderful quilt made with my By The Numbers pattern, “Done by Three”! I love what Nora did! I can’t tell you any more, as it might be a present. You can find the mentioned tool and pattern on my website, http://www.wendtquilting.com!!
#2 – Try using solids or peppered cottons! Great to show off a design.
