We have seen some incredibly colorful projects this week, but it's not over yet.

Kathy shared her not so yellow..."Yellow Brick Road" quilt with us along with different interpretations from students she taught.

Wendy knocked our socks off today with a fabulous improv quilt with all her glorious colors!

Karen singing her song, created a tote bag that's just perfect.

Julia not only rocked the color world, but the math world too. If only I had stuck with geometry in school!

Rachel took us on a journey of reflection on our world today and really made us stop and think. Thank you for such a powerful post.

 Joan (that's me) shared a barn in a color no one has likely ever seen. Oh and a little secret too!

It's My Day on the Wonderful World of Color Blog Hop

 We have seen so many incredible projects this week, thanks to my awesome fellow bloggers. Today is my day to share, and in my world right now, my color is

Having been a boy mom all my life, pink wasn't a color we saw much of around here. 
Then came my lil "grandie" Sweet Pea, and that all changed.

I stumbled on this pattern on Pinterest and fell in love with it.

I was especially drawn to the pink version, but in my head I knew that the regular barn color would be best. What if I had little boy grandies down the road?
I talked it over with my quilt friends and we all were in agreement...
So what did I do?

Yep, not listen to anyone, including myself.

I just couldn't help it.

I love all the animals.

And that turquoise hair'd horse!

I "girlie'd" it up a little bit more, with flowers from a quilt pattern from 
"Red Boot Quilt Company".

This sweet little "Highland Cow" is the first animal in the barn.
A friend of mine makes all kinds of fun amigurumi crochet animals and dolls.
You can check out her facebook page

The peak on the barn was easy to make with PVC pipes. I couldn't get the top of the barn to keep from sagging, so I got out my drill and put a couple of holes in the elbows on the top and popped in a dowel rod. Ta-Dah! That was all it took.
Duct tape holds it all down nicely and it's easy to dis-assemble and store when not in use.

Speaking of use... I would love to report that it was met with resounding "LOVE", but not really.
Right now it's just a place to go and get away to "poop". I guess we all have to have a place like that!
She can hide, but I can still smell her!
Gotta love it, don't ya?

Her new barn has joined past hop projects...definitely a pink theme going on here.
Just as I finished up her room, we got the news!

Needless to say, I'm over the moon excited, but does this mean I just might have to un-girlie her room just a little bit and make a new barn? Who knows...blue might just be the next color, in my world.
We will know soon!

 The Big Sister T-Shirt, is thanks to Thermoweb's

HeatNBond®Inkjet Transfer Sheets

Using that, and free clip-art online makes it fast and easy to customize a shirt.

No matter what color the world is, this little chick is going to love being a big sister.

For those of you interested in the barn pattern, I found it on Etsy HERE, but it looks like there is only 1 left, so you better grab it while you can if your interested.

Thanks for hanging out with us this week!

Wonderful World of Color Day 4

We are already at day 4 and the bloggers did soar, with projects are colorful as a rainbow.

Carol dazzled us with some of her colorful projects and tempted us all with a fabulous free jelly roll free pattern, she found online.

Joy filled my heart with...well "joy" sharing her beautiful Autumn quilt. I'm still marveling over how it matches the background that inspired her perfectly.

Selina rocked the WWOC with her take on the old Disney Show. Her imagination never ceases to amaze me.

Karrin shared a beautiful tumbler quilt in a rainbow of color. Check out the header on her blog page as well. Her sweet spring photo, just melted my heart!

Emily made a very special quilt for her son's teacher, in her favorite colors. 

Becky created a colorful jacket, that really shows her colors. She also dug into her UFO bag and finished the cutest little Babushka quiltie. Way to rock the hop.

We had a little mix-up on dates, so you may have missed Words & Stitches, yesterday. Make sure you visit, because Beth shared funniest named quilt I think I've heard, along with some colorful quilts she has made through the years....You have to check it out for yourself!

Wonderful World of Color Day 3

Yippee skippee, we are at day 3, and the past two have been nothing short of awesome.

Today's bloggers sure have had their fabulous "color" glasses on.

 Daryl took us on a trip down memory lane and shared a colorful scrappy quilt.

Gail tickled my funny bone with her ROY-G-BIV bag. I love her acronym!

Carol delighted us with so many beautiful scrappy quilts and a very special growth chart.

Leah really put her heart into her colorful project!

Lynn shared 3 beauties, each one in its own world of color.

At Danice's house it's "Color O'Clock" and I love it!

What's my favorite part about blog hops?

They make us a small world. We can reach out to anyone across the globe and share.
I love seeing our worldwide quilting community come together.

Tomorrow, we have 6 more blogging friends join us.

Wonderful World of Color Day 1

Wow, Wow, Wow...
Our first day and we are off and running. My fabulous fellow bloggers have not disappointed.

Carla shared her "Wonderful" Barbed Wheels quilt. 
Best yet, she dusted off a quilt book from a BeaQuilter blog hop. Now that's putting those books we had to buy to good use!

The design team Sharon and Susan from "Ms P Designs USA" dazzled us with a dynamite explosion of color with Susan's "Stash Busting Scrappy Sampler". It just makes my heart happy seeing it.

Anorina shared the most delightful "Doodle Quilt" with us. She took a class on Doodle Bug and it looks so fun, that I want to try it now.

Kathleen not only made an awesome colorful "Stretched Geese" block, but she added it to pouch, she made. But the fun didn't stop there. She created a pattern for us to make our own stretched goose block and a layout for a sweet little baby quilt.

Elana makes lots of beautiful quilts for the charity "Covered in Love".  She dug into her Scraps and strings and came up with a colorful log cabin quilt that's bound to delight anyone.

Kris  shared a quilt she designed for a shop back in 2010. We got a peek at all the different colorways it was made it. Best yet...she is bringing back that pattern in a new "free" BOM. It starts now, so you don't want to miss out.

Did I tell your these girls rocked the world of color?

Springtime with a Whimsical Mini


Spring has sprung and I don't know about you, but I'm way past being ready for it this year!
I guess I should say, I was until I saw this...
Just why is it that even before I get the dead leaves from last year blown out of the rocks, the dandelions are blooming? Uggggh.

While I should be out taking care of that dandelion, because I'm sure his brothers, sisters, and cousins are waiting right around the corner to take up residence here, as well...
...but this "Whimiscal Spring Mini" that needs no weeding was calling my name.

Carol Swift from "Just Let Me Quilt",  Carla Henton from "Creatin' in the Sticks" and I have created "Spring Mini's" all week, for your enjoyment on the Thermoweb blog. Make sure you check them out and download your free patterns.

You can find mine HERE.

These products make quilt projects, so much easier.

HeatNBond EZ Print Lite - sheets are a fast, no tracing way to fusible applique. Just pop a sheet into your printer and print your applique pieces. 

 HeatNBond®Fusible Fleece - give a nice flat finish to your project when it's done. It's perfect for table toppers and mini wall hangings.

SprayNBond®Basting Adhesive - is a no odor temporary spray that keeps your backing and layers nice and smooth, while your quilting.

Have you tried using an acrylic paint for "dot" detail work?
It's so easy with a stylus. Once it's completely dry, you can iron it to set the paint.

Now on a closer look, my dandelion isn't the only thing growing in my yard. These daffodils are happily growing with another weed...go figure!

And my mini daffodils and hyacinth have just started to bloom.

Be it your indoor blooms or the outdoor ones, have a very Happy Spring!

til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
