Watercolor Quilts

Most of these wall hangings are original....no pattern is available or possible.  I share them to inspire you to try your hand at creating a watercolor quilt.  
Full details and tutorials are available on the "Designing Page" of the blog (under the banner photo).

Thanks to Wanda at Exuberant Color for the starting pack of squares for this color wash wall hanging.  I added lots of squares from my own stash for this one.

Inspired by words from a song, I created 3 variations for Awakening.  Each border is different and changes the feeling of each wall hanging.
