My Bloggers Choice Fat Quarter Bundle

Hi all,

This has been all over blogland this week so I thought I would give it a go!

The idea is to design your own designer fat quarter bundle like we have seen on the Fat Quarter Shop and then link it up over at Quokka Quilts. There is the possibility of winning a half yard bundle of your selections too!

So I started with violet/purple – my favourite colour! And grey had to be another key colour. I tried yellow as the 3rd colour but it didn’t look right so I went with berry (violet-red) because it is next to violet on the colour wheel.


I have actually been playing with this for a couple of days…and also did another completely different colourway. But I do love this one! The hedgehogs just give the selection a touch of whimsy too which is great.

your colour choices are great Jess. I am not so good at getting that bit right, so I depend on people like you to give me a lead. Thanks. Blessings for the New Year 2012

Your selection is gorgeous Jess! I'm pinning this one for future reference! I find it hard to use purple without going too far into 'novelty' prints. Love the hedgies!

What a lovely collection. Would make a very sophisticated quilt, I warrant! Must try it myself.

Visiting from Quokka Quilts--what a great collection. I noticed we used a lot of the same colors. Love your picks!
