Mosaic Tuesday - Ocean Blue, Green, Sand {Quiltspiration365}

Thanks to some of the lovely ladies over at Late Night Quilters I'm happy to introduce a new series of weekly posts I'm calling Mosaic Tuesdays (for lack of a better name at this point).  It's part of an effort we're calling quiltspiration365‬, intended to fulfill your every need when it comes to quilty inspiration 365 days a year.  You can find more posts about the series on Facebook and instagram using the hashtag #quiltspiration365 as well as links to the other posts this week below.  I'll be sharing color mosaics that inspire me, and hopefully you as well.  This will be an interactive series so I'll encourage you to post links to the color palettes that have been inspiring you lately!  Feel free to use these to inspire your projects I just ask that you link back to the original color pallet post to give credit.  So without further adu...

As the trees are beginning to turn here in New England, I find myself clinging to the soft colors of summer.  This mosaic is inspired by a day at the beach.

Overcast skies lend themselves to soft muted colors of summer:  The light blues of the sky and water and the quieted colors of the green beach glass both stand out against the soft and warm colored tans and whites of the sand and sky.

The other posts from this week can be found here:

Kitty from Night Quilter brought us Color Inspiration Thursday and food inspired palettes.

4. Show us your color mosaics/fabric pulls/quilt tops that have been inspiring you.
5. Have fun and visit at least two other links from the party.

Post your link below!


  1. Such a pretty, calming palette. Love that Liberty chevron quilt in the top row.

    You may be on to something with that holding on to summer idea. Now that I think about it, the quilt I just started last week is a lot softer and more muted than my usual. So much different that I had to make a special fabric shopping trip.

  2. The antique French spools and low volume bundle could arrive on my doorstep any day and I'd be THRILLED! I love those both! haha :) Great mosaic :) Very calming indeed.


I love hearing from you!
