Sunday Stash #3

Hi all, sorry for the lack of posts this week - I've been under the weather.  Either my allergies are kicking my tail or I've got a cold, but either way it's poor timing with Thanksgiving coming up this week. 

Anyway, to bolster my spirits (and support the local economy!) I went to my LQS, Among Friends Quilt Shop, for their sale-abration yesterday.  Remember when I wrote about choosing colors and getting better at picking them myself instead of relying on pre-packaged bundles?  Well, I gave it a shot.  I decided on the following color scheme from Design-Seeds:

And this is what I came up with:

The fat quarters are random assorted fabrics (no labels, although the solids are Moda) and the dark grey is Bella Solid in Graphite.  One of my other Sewing with Certainty goals was to actually do one of the BOMs that I have pinned.  So my plan is to follow the Summer Sampler Series with the various fat quarter colors as the star blocks and the dark grey as the background.  I've already planned a slight diversion from the plan, though, as I'm not a big fan of the stars with strings.  I'll have to figure out other blocks to sub in for those two.  Thoughts, anyone?

Linking up with Sunday Stash at Finding Fifth.


  1. Hope you feel better soon. Loving this color pallet. Nice :)

  2. I think you've picked some great fabrics here! I always mean to use one of those design-seed like tools, but always forget when the time comes. :)

  3. I don't have thoughts on alternate blocks, but I do have thoughts on that selection of fabrics, which is that they're gorgeous. LOVE the colour scheme. So lovely.
