An Apple Pie Penny Patch Quilt!
I have been picking fabrics in the scrapatch today!
I am participating in the
Although I like to think I know a little bit about quilting,
I know have sew much more to learn.
In today's Color Scheme Ideas installment
I feel like I have already learned some valuable
new tips for picking colors and fabrics.
My A&B Colors ~ Red and Green (Apples!)
My C Color ~ Yellow (Sunshine!)
2 Medium Brown ~ (Piecrust!)
Here are my red and green and yellow fat quarters
with some of my low volume fabrics.
This is a very eclectic assortment of fabrics.
In addition to apple prints from three different lines,
there are classic Thimbleberries, a Kate Spain modern geometric,
two prim type sheep prints, some squiggly sewing theme scrips,
a Riley Blake print, and a some other random stash fabrics.
I have added a touch of black for a bit more contrast ...
Butterfly helped by adding the black and white to this quilt ... ;)
My low volume neutrals are grayish green and tan.
I picked through my stash ... added and subtracted ...
arranged and rearranged ... switched fabrics in and out ...
This is what I have right now ... I like!
When I have finalized my choices I will cut fat quarters
from the yardage so I start with the 30 FQs called for to
make the twin size quilt.
Mmmmmmm ... I love apple pie!
(I just may have to bake an apple pie now.)
Hope you are having a fun day in your fabric patch, too.
Tomorrow I am planning to enjoy the quilts at a nearby quilt guild show from the Tewksbury Piecemakers.
These quilters always put on a good show.
May you have a happy quilty weekend, too!
