My wife and I, along with friends of ours, took a trip, Columbus Day weekend, to Lake George, New York. The weather was perfect that weekend with sunshine all three days that we were there. We played golf on the first day and then took a 2 1/2 hour sightseeing cruise on Lake George, the second day. The colors on the trees were magnificent, showing off their bright oranges, yellows and reds in unique combinations of hues. What amazed me was the way that the colors blended in with each other and the surrounding buildings with their colors of blues, grays, browns and all the colors in between. What was surprising to me, was the fact that these combinations seemed to go together and gave me a better understanding and appreciation of color, which would work well with new color combinations for my barn quilts.
With the completion of the Spinning Color Wheel I have now made 12 barn quilts. With the days getting shorter and time spent outside lessens, I will now have more time to spend in the basement working on more barn quilts. I haven't decided which design to work on next. I know that it won't be long before I have pencil and yard stick in a hand and tracing out another pattern.
