Colors on the Brain

I've pointed this out before, how Mom works with some colors during the day, and without her knowing it, she uses the same colors later, but in very unexpected ways. See if you can figure it out this time. Here are three Gizzy quilts Mom worked on yesterday, and at the very bottom, what she made for her dinner last night.
Mom says this is her idea of the perfect one-pot meal.

(That chicken has had its back removed, and also the keelbone, so it lies flat. It was roasted in a 450 oven for 40 minutes. I added the onions with the chicken, and the sweet potato and asparagus at the 25 minute mark. All vegies were tossed with olive oil, salt and pepper before being added to the pan. I also brushed the chicken with barbeque sauce at the 25 minute mark.)

That is a funny post, the quilts do match the dinner!!

Yum, my mum is enjoying asparagus from the US at the moment. She feels bad for using carbon credits, but her tummy feels good for eating it!

Enjoy your dinner, and Millie I hopes you gets some chicken. Me I am not interested in people food.

I can not decide which is nicer the chicken or the quilt... Hmm I think the quilt is cause it last longer but If you want to include some chicken in the package for me that would be nice too :)
