Color Quilt Challenge

A challenge over at bloom to use our photographs to creat a color quilt was something I didn’t know if I would get done this week.  So I grabbed my camera as I headed out to do some Christmas shopping with family today.

My “shopping day in Lancaster county “ color quilt.

What I realized through this was how most of my photos are either, green, brown or more muted neutral colors.  Rarely do I pick up on bright yellows, blues or reds, so this was an eye opener.  See though, how I could not resist a brown, this sign caught my eye outside of the shop and I liked it so much I had to include it.  And now I find myself wanting to stay up late tonight, making more and more with older photos.

I am really looking forward to the next challenge which you can find here and don’t forget to stop by here to read the comments and see who else participated.  Since I am getting a late post due to a busy day, I’ve already peeked and they are all very lovely.
