When I saw this image in The Company Store catalog, I about flipped. This quilt looks SO MUCH like the wallpaper in my young-girl bedroom! It’s a long story and some of you have probably heard it. The short version is that I have a wonderful mother that allowed me to embrace my happiest colors at a young age. For my 12th birthday, my bedroom was carpeted in Kelly green and my walls had daisy wallpaper. Mom’s unselfish act (these are NOT her colors) was the beginning of a life full of color for me!
Yes, I’ll be ordering this quilt.
Ahh, what I would give for a photo of that bedroom!

Challenge: Go find one, two or more photos that make you feel as light hearted and springy as these colors and put them together with spring green, buttercup yellow and white. Don’t worry if the colors in the photo don’t “match.” It will be ok — trust me.
Even Better: Use buttons. Sew them on with thread.
I can’t wait to see your creations in the i Love Color Flickr gallery!
wait, there’s more …
Last week I hinted at a new partnership that I’m very excited about. I am teaming up with team at Core’dinations cardstock to make the I Love Color blog a little more exciting. I absolutely love the way Core’diations has introduced innovation after innovation with their cardstock line, so I asked them if they would reward one of my color-loving readers for posting an eye-catching card, page or project in the I Love Color Flickr gallery.
The answer was YES.
So, here’s how this is going to work:
On Fridays — I post a new color combination
Over the weekend — you use that combination in a creative way and post your work to our Flickr gallery
Wednesday mornings — Allison selects one of the posted projects to feature here on the blog
Soon after that — The creative person behind the featured project receives a pack of assorted cardstock ($10 retail value) in the mail from Core’dinations. This could be you.
Doesn’t that sound FUN?
I think so too.
