Anthologie quilt: more progress

"Four Seasons in one day quilt" is my version of Melanie from southerncharmquilts Anthologie quilt. It's basically a sampler quilt, and is meant to be very Bohemian in style, with lots of layering, and mixing pattern & texture.

I'm going for a boho mix of colours and florals, using Kaffe spots, Tilda and Anna Maria florals. I'm finding that if I repeat a few combos, it's starting to look fairly cohesive. The plaid & those Kaffe spots really add a much needed contrast with all my florals. Sewing with this mix of fabrics is totally uplifting!
 


  



I'm running outta design wall space, 
so one section is down on the design floor now and the other larger section is up on the wall.



Yep, I think this could work!

Until next time, Linda
