Straits of Mackinac

Straits of Mackinac

I started my second quilt for 2017 :) I fell in love with the mock up that Bonnie Hunter had blogged about in November, and it has been on my mind ever since.  I pulled out blue strips from my bin and started sewing!  So far I have all the large triangle pieces needed, but now I need to figure out what I want to do for the background.

I was thinking about a neutral cream or white, but yellow is really calling to me.  I pulled the majority of my stashed yellows, and I think I do like it.  I know what my friend Mary is thinking about the yellows :)

I'm also trying to figure out Instagram.  When I upload a photo, I find that I have an option to also post to flickr (where I host my blog images).  However... I haven't seen it actually post to flickr yet.  I'm not sure what I am doing wrong with that.  Has anyone else had success with posting there?  I'm taking a break with facebook (the politics are draining me!) so I have decided to start using my instagram account.  I only started one years ago to see what my son was posting, but now I'd rather start seeing fun images so I think I am going to start going there instead of facebook.  Anyway, if you have any tips, please send them my way!
