Fat Quarter Bundle

Quokka Quilts is hosting a contest to pick a fat quarter bundle of 12 prints and 3 coordinating solds from the Fat Quarter Shop.  I have had a color scheme in mind for a few months, so I loved being able to look through all of the fabrics and be able to find fabrics to fit my color scheme to see how it might actually look.  I was thinking of periwinkle, red orange, brown, and wheat.  After looking through the fabrics, I ended up with more of a true orange, than a red orange, but I am pretty pleased with the final look.  I don't expect to win, but I really enjoyed the process and I think I will continue to search for fabric making a mosaic in this way when I am trying to decide on final color combinations.

Here is my bundle pick.

  2. great combination! So glad you had fun. Did you know you are a no-reply blogger? :)
