Color Inspiration

Have you noticed that color inspiration can come from the most unlikely of places? My husband and I were visiting the coast recently and visited the local aquarium.  These are just two of the photos that I took that night. Now that he enjoys woodcarving, we have a lot to discuss when it comes to color, form, function, etc. I'm always looking at items and thinking about shapes and colors; he's always looking at them as potential woodcarving subjects!

When I look at the jellyfish, I see a completely neutral quilt palette. The shades of brown, cream, gold, white... they're all fantastic to me!

When I look at the sea anemones, I see a gorgeous array of blue, purple, brown, green, grey, peach, pink, fuchsia, olive, black, navy, and everything in between! 

How about you? What do you see when you look at this darling seahorse? This tiny creature really made me smile. I've always wanted to make a Storm at Sea quilt. Maybe this will be my color inspiration!

Have you ever made a Storm at Sea quilt? Do you have any advice before I get started? Any favorite methods? I'd love to plan ahead for this one and have a sew-along here on the blog!
