Eye-Candy, For Certain!
Aren't these fabrics luscious??!! I just received them in the mail from talented quilter and dye-artist Linda Salitrynski who lives in Rome, Pennsylvania. I have had a quilt design in my head for some time now; the idea has even made it to the drawing stage, where I used colored pencils to help me decide on a palette of periwinkles and greens. I then set out on an impossible search for a gradation of periwinkle blues; I found violets, lavenders, purples, and denims, but nothing that matched the color I had in my head -- or in my pencil case. So I called Linda, who is a true mixologist, and who persevered until she developed the perfect recipe for the gorgeous gradation you see here. She told me she was so pleased with the results that she plans to offer this colorway in her store. The green fabrics are hers as well, an eight-step gradation called Lime Green and available on her web site, along with many other beautiful fabrics. Do visit her site -- it's a feast for the eyes.
