Cool and Serene

In the summertime, when it's hot outside, it's especially pleasant to sit and stitch on something cool.
I was printing a batch of quilt patterns this morning, and came across an older one.... I forgot how lovely this one is, called MORNING GLORY, which evokes the blues, pinks, purples and plums of those bold climbing flowers.

I used a bunch of cool jewel-tone colors, making it look like an old-fashioned Amish quilt:

Very easy stitching, cool colors (with a bit of metallic sparkle) and a pleasing geometric design that is traditional yet modern when done!  What more could you ask for in a relaxing summer project?  It's available on my website, under the American Quilt Collection....
