I am excited that Yvonne Fuchs from Quilting Jetgirl is hosting another quilt-along called Wayward Transparency QAL I enjoy her patterns and she offers easy to follow tutorials and guidance along the way.
Last year she hosted the Summer Snowflake Shimmer QAL which was a fun project resulting in a very generous sized quilt for our cabin.
I set about gathering fabrics for the quilt hoping to make 2 for our cabin walls. I chose green and brown as the main colors, given the cabin’s forest setting.
My final picks for the browns are as follows: Kona Espresso, Moda Bella Solids Paper Bag and Kona Khaki. The mid range color is the one I struggled the most with, though I am thrilled with the addition and final choice of the Paper Bag by Moda.
The brown color palate plays well in black and white too, SCORE!
For the greens, I did not have such success. I can open up a fabric store now with the green yardage I have bought for the light and mid colors, in my attempt to have enough contrast.
I thought for sure these lovelies would work…Kona Basil, Kona Chartreuse and Bella Solids Celery.
Here’s the black and white shot. I need to place a big red X over it. The Celery and Chartreuse are nearly identical. Kona Tarragon played the same way, just too close to the Chartreuse.
I am eyeing Bella Solids Fresh Grass or Leaf and Contempo Meadow Dance options currently but may start with the browns and see how I do.
Looking forward to the next set of instructions from Yvonne next month.
