Help Choose the Colorway for October
I’ve just posted a poll in the right sidebar, asking for your opinion about possible color-combinations for October. You may choose as many from the list as you like . . . or choose the none of the above option and post your suggestion as a comment on this post.
In case your reaction to the list is “what was she thinking” … here’s what:
Two color block choices are ALWAYS popular and while we have included blue in some block choices this year, we haven’t made any pure blue blocks.
It’s a popular colorway that has been requested in the past. It’s a little close to our African Violets, but still worth considering.
We haven’t done anything with Tans and Browns for a while. This colorway always makes me think of the sand and sky and sea.
I don’t know that we have EVER made completely neutral lotto blocks. Maybe it’s time. (Or maybe I’ve just been thinking of some neutral swap blocks I have that I’m ready to turn into a quilt 🙂
The chocolate- raspberry inspired colorway that we used a few years ago (for framed pinwheels) was so popular, it might be time to revisit. (The link leads to the blocks I made)
Most of this year’s blocks have been on the color-saturated side–perhaps we should accept it as the theme for this year and continue the pattern.
It will soon be Fall in the northern hemisphere, so maybe a colorway that suggests Autumn makes sense?
You can probably tell that as I was making this list, one idea led to another … and perhaps, if none of these appeal, they sparked an idea for you–please share your “thinking” in the comments.
Edited to add: In case you’re new or are making a mental list of what we’ve already made this year, I’ve updated the 2011 lotto block index. It has the list of blocks we made this year, with links to all the photos (if you tagged your post correctly) and the block directions.
One more PS. In case you’re wondering I cannot see who voted for what, so if you’re reaction is UGH, don’t be afraid vote that I’ll know who voted that way.
