Taking a break from sewing with the bright saturated colours and contrast that are usually just what I love. Lately though, I've been tempted by a few softly coloured quilts, ones with lots of scrappy low volume fabrics, like this one here .. and here .. and over here too.
I rummaged around and selected a few pastel fabrics and assorted 'greys' to start off with. I cut out strips and also sorted through my scrap basket and found a bunch of pre-cut squares, perfect. It's a real mix of leftovers, odd bits, and new, so long as it has a low colour value it's going in.
I've made up six 16 patch blocks so far. Loving the simple repetitive process of piecing these, even very pale fabrics have subtle light & dark value differences. It's looking fresh & sweet & pretty . . . and it's a nice change to work on something that's so completely different from my 'red' quilt.
Linking up with Wendy for the 'peacock party' here
and with Cynthia for 'oh scrap' over here after the weekend.
