The Masterpiece by Javan

The Masterpiece by Javan

We are born into the world like a blank canvas and each person that crosses our path takes up the brush and makes his mark upon our surface


So it is that we develop

But we must realize there comes a day that we must take up the brush and finish the work

For only we can determine if we are to be just another painting or a Masterpiece. Javan

Cottage Maze - Oh My !!!

While seeking inspiration, I came across the fabrics I have been collecting for the Works HiddenInMyMind - WHIMM - project.
I have been waiting a long time to use that particular acronym
  I decided somewhere along the way that coral, green and periwinkle would look good together and as you can see, coral and green seem to be easier to find than periwinkle. 



The pattern will be Cottage Maze by Carolina Patchworks


Since I commited this year to NOT make star quilts, this definitely fits the bill.
 Really, does every pattern or quilt have to have a star in it?  I have seen some really nice quilt patterns that I plan to use (can't wait to do the plaid quilt), and I have also seen some really modern-looking quilts that I will not be making- just do not appeal to me.  Sorry.
So here are my fabrics - just need to get that special off-white background purchased and I really do need a couple more periwinkles.  Wish me luck on my search.


Wishing you happiness on your journey - Judy C

Postscript - I ended up making this out of Kate Spain's Terrain
Just beautiful and I still need to use my colors.
