Fabric Friday #2

Todays Fabric Friday is inspired by the 2012 Pantone Spring/Summer Colors. I love when they announce/predict the new color trends.  I don’t always agree, and they sometimes choose odd names for colors, but still, ever the color junkie I can never resist a good palette.

I realized while making this that I don’t have a single cocoa colored fabric. I’m having a hard time even thinking of prints in that color. The Henna Garden (Speckle) might be close, though I haven’t actually seen that one in person. Hmm, leave a link in the comments if you’ve got a cocoa match. Anyhow, here’s is a stack I made inspired by the Spring color palette. 

If you’re a Portland local, I hope that you’ll join me and the rest of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild at our first All Day Sew of the year. From 8am -9pm at Fabric Depot. I’ll be there, sewing, talking way too much and taking pictures of everyone’s WIP’s! More details on the PMQG blog if you’re interested.

    Fabric Depot has some beautiful faux linen in that coco color that’d be really pretty with your pallet. See you tomorrow!
    PS: Walk me though hand quilting thread while we’re there? xoxo

      Oh, I won’t! It’s my primary purse right now.I’m glad you’re coming! I was actually just sitting here deliberating on what I want to work on tomorrow….. I’ve got my king size single girl to sandwich and mark for hand stitching, a full size little leaves quilt and another commissioned one that needs to be finished by the 25th…..but I also really want to work on my hex quilt! What are you going to work on?
