Work in Progress - Blooming Four Patch Quilt

This was my project of choice over the winter holiday time off stretch.  The perfect antidote to the weather, something bright and tropical.  The top is finished, more photos to follow.  This is my third blooming quilt.  Other one in WIP state can be seen here.

Dusty Pink & Hot Pink

This photo is floor tile in an elevator.  I loved the idea of pairing a dusty orchid type color with a bright shade of pink.  It was completely unexpected, something I never would have thought of; although, a few days later I picked up my current knitting project (photo below) and realized that I had actually paired these two colors together already.  They're part of a wrap "of many colors" if you will, a la Dolly Parton.  I would love to try this pairing out in a full quilt.  It reminds of of Denyse Schmidt's two tone drunk love quilts featured here on her website.
