Mosaic Tuesday - Moth Inspired {Quiltspiration 365}

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  #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.  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...

Today's palette is inspired by these cool, but somewhat creepy fabric moths by Yumi Okita.  There is another interesting blog post about them here.

This palette is made up of bold and dark aqua and teal offset by sharp yellows and various shades of pink.  Black and lots of white help to ground these otherwise flighty colors.  I think this could be fun as a grown-up version of a primary colored quilt (red, yellow, blue).  It would also be perfect for any nursery in my opinion.
