Color Options

Today I took an existing pattern of mine, and changed the color and design. I did it primarily to show another option for the pattern. Here is the original design:

Here it is after I added the evergreen trees: 

Here it is in with a different color combination and applique: 

I absolutely love this blue swirl fat quarter, but never had anything to make with it. Turns out it was just waiting for this project. After making the square as an example, I finished it off into a mug rug (love those mug rugs for using up odd pieces of fabric or UFO squares!) This was a happy project for a winter day!

  1. What a fabulous change up for your pattern. I really like the last block best! Gotta love those happy projects!

    1. Thanks! It is my favorite also, but I am very partial to blue and white (as is my kitchen :) )

  2. Amazing how just a couple little changes makes for a totally different look! Thanks for sharing.

  3. I always like the magazine patterns/articles that show a different color combination, so I decided to try my own. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. The colors look nice and different...
