Mouse Paint

There is this children's book called Mouse Paint by Ellen Walsh.  It is the story of some mice who accidentally step in paint and then they do color mixing.  This is the inspiration of my this quilt with the idea that I will NOT buy new fabric until I use up a lot of what I have laying around.

I sent the first picture to my niece Caryn because she has a very good eye for color.  She said why not do it in many colors like the quilt I made her daughter!  I did my version of that!  Thanks Caryn for the great idea!

Here's what it looks like so far.  I am keeping the Lemons in no matter what!!!

What a cute YouTube video clip. Thanks for the link.
I think you would like our Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Several of us play along. This is my third year. Each month Angela at announces a color for the month. We go through our scraps and piece blocks. Hopefully at the end of the year we will have enough colorful scrappy blocks for a quilt top or two or three. It's a good way to turn our scraps into colorful scrap quilts.
