Playing with Color

I've been working hard so I took some time to play today and here is the result. I've been wanting to combine some of the Color Delights with Rainbow in the center and blending into the squares around it. Here's the result...
This is a combo of nine Color Delights designs (I counted and I have 31 in the collection now!). Rainbow is in the center and going around clockwise, starting with the top left, is Sunshine, Tangerine, Magenta, Bubblegum, Purple, Indigo, Aqua, and Chartreuse. Stitched this way, the overall design would be 12x12. After this exercise, I realize I need to add some blue designs to the collection! That said, Lavender is the next release and here's a photo (the pattern is at the printer and will be here soon!)

I'm exhibiting in the online show - it starts tomorrow. I'm releasing Lavender and the next Double Delights. It's called Nolive - can you guess what two colors it combines?


  1. Oh my, such a colourful and beautiful combination! I love the motive in the middle!
    Nolive could be Navy (or Noir?) and olive :)


  2. Hi! I discovered your amazing designs while looking for Genny Morrow and Susan Portra. Are your charts available in the UK? Or are they available for download as a PDF?
