Scrappy Quilt Along with A Quiltville Mystery: En Provence

One of my favorite websites for scrappy quilting inspiration is Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville.  

If you haven't ever visited her site, definitely take some time to check it out.  There is A LOT there.  It will take you a while.  So definitely go grab a cuppa before you head over.

Bonnie just released her introduction today for her latest Quiltville Mystery quilt: En Provence.

This quilt will finish at 87" by 87", so it'll be a nice project to use up lots of scraps.

Bonnie chose some colors and shared some Sherwin Williams paint color names that are a lot of fun:

Impulsive Purple-a dark purple for depth.

Magical-lighter purples.

Garden Spot-a grassy/avocado green.

Afternoon-a sunny yellow that contrasts the grassy green.

Hibiscus-a nice intense magenta, which will be used for the constant color throughout the quilt.

I'm intrigued.

These colors are some of my favorites.  So while I already have too many projects going, I might just have to join in this one!  

The colors in this quilt remind me a lot of going to the Lavender Festival in Sequim, Washington.

I have many pictures from Sequim and the Lavender Festival that are in the same color palette, so just for fun, I'll share a few! 

I'm not sure why I deviated from my standard cowboy boots in lieu of a pair of dusty, sequined Converse. I'm pretty sure it was just HOT that day!

Some of the pictures aren't so sharp.  I'm in need of a new camera, still.

But that is neither here nor there.
