"Think you can't change the world? Too late, you already have. It was changed for the better the minute you were born. There are more people than you can imagine who will never be the same because they came in contact with you, if only for a fleeting moment." ~Gail Purcell

What Color Are you Today?

I am participating in Maria Peagler's color of the month series. January was very difficult for me because the theme was black and white.
(although some very cute things are black and white)

While I don't dislike these colors, I have never made a quilt/project out of just black, white and neutrals. I struggled with the color choices but I ended up liking the fabrics that I picked out for the most part.
(I will share a pic after I put the borders on).

We all tend to gravitate toward certain colors and I joined this series to make myself get out of my comfort zone (and so far it's working)

To read more about colors and what they mean, check this out.

Then you can
                                                                                                                           (flickr.com) My favorite color is blue (although I like greens and purples too).
Found this tidbit about the color blue:

"While blue is one of the most popular colors it is one of the least appetizing. Blue food is rare in nature. Food researchers say that when humans searched for food, they learned to avoid toxic or spoiled objects, which were often blue, black, or purple. When food dyed blue is served to study subjects, they lose appetite."

Now you can take this short quiz and find out the color of YOUR rainbow.
(Look! Mine is shaded blue!)

Your rainbow is slightly shaded blue.


What is says about you: You are a tranquil person. You appreciate friends who get along with one another. You share hobbies with friends and like trying to fit into their routines.

Find the colors of your rainbow at spacefem.com.

Colors are the smiles of nature.

  1. I took the quiz and I came out strongly indigo, blue and brown - that's a surprise for me since I tend to gravitate towards greens and yellows :o) Looking forward to seeing your black & white quilt. We had a challenge last year at our guild to do black, white and one other color - lots of fun. My third color was lime green!! Happy quilting

  2. I have read that if you want to dull the appetite to use blue dishes...

  3. Hi, Sheila!,
