get the mix

- initial selection of four groups of fabric to use throughout my main blocks.
I find repeating a fabric or colour often disperses any doubts I may have had, so fingers crossed!

And onto the collage section...
Just adding in some green foliage now to connect up my floral clusters.

Oh and I was determined to include this plaid... somewhere...anywhere... 

… and am très happy now! 

Lots of fun exploring this eclectic mix of fabrics - Kaffe spots, Tilda and Anna Maria's effervescent florals - all teamed up a few extras from my stash and a selection of creamy low volumes.

And, thanks to Susan from patchworknplay for the spot on visual, I'm now thinking this palette is looking very much like a four seasons in one day quilt - the light florals for Spring, the rich purples & deep blues for Winter, with touches of warm orange & gold for Autumn, and the cool light teal blues & very berry colours for Summer.

Until next time, Linda


  1. Beautifull colours you have selected and I love the blocks you have made.

  2. you are using many scraps for sure - very colorful

  3. You had me at the polka dots, then you threw in the plaid! Love it!

  4. WOW! That plaid Dresden Plate block is striking Linda! Although I must disagree- to me this is a Four Seasons quilt- the florals for Spring, the rich purples and blues for Winter and touches of orange for Autumn. And the pink spot on green says something different again!!!

  5. Such a beautiful mix of fabrics here Linda, your quilt will be a stunner. Kaffe and Kathy's fabrics play very nicely together don't they? I see you have the new Kaffe Spot fabric, I bought some of each of the new colours and my favourite is Merlot.

  6. Oh my gosh, Linda -- this is just a visual FEAST! I have a lot of these fabrics in my own stash, and seeing what you're up to with yours is giving me quite the inspirational itch to start a new project of my own. Can't wait to see more of this one!

  7. Looking great as always. I am loving the way the spotty fabrics pop up in the blocks.

  8. Plaids make a great addition to a scrap quilt. And yours are lovely.
