Blue-Green: August’s Color-of-the-Month

Since Pantone has declared turquoise the hot color of 2010, blue-green is everywhere.  I must admit, blue-green was never one of my favorites, as I’d seen it used badly in southwestern color palettes, but never in a color scheme I enjoyed.  So, I took my own advice from Color Mastery and worked with this challenging color (for me) until I loved it.  And I do.

You will too after you experience the luscious blue-green quilts offered up this month by indie quilt designers from the Yahoo Quilt Designers Collective.  Get advice from and see the quilts of Pat Sloan, Barbara Campbell, Sarah Whitney, Helen Stubbings, Marilyn Foreman, and Marcy Horswill.

Will probably commence with posting interesting facts just like”The Brimstone butterfly (Gonepterix rhamni) has the longest lifetime of the adult butterflies: 9-10 months.”Please let me know if you know where I can find some related information and facts such as here
