Color Crush

I have a major crush on a color combination. I cannot get it out of my mind and find myself thinking of all the quilts I could make with fabrics in these hues. Are you ready?

Orange, caramel, lilac, berry-red, plum and cream.

As a die-hard lover of the color green and a huge fan of all shades of blue and cool toned colors overall, I have surprised myself. Again. And really, I shouldn't be so shocked. Every single one of these fabrics are from my stash and, by the looks of it, these colors have appealed to me in fabric form for a good long while. The combination of them together, though, is a little far-out for me. I don't think I have ever made something with so many warm toned fabrics.

What's a girl to do? Start cutting, of course.

What color combos are you into these days? I'd love to know. Your favorites might have me looking at my stash through different eyes and I would really like that. I have put myself on a fabric-buying hiatus until I can finish some WIPs and/or bust through some of my stash. That probably includes de-stashing a good chunk of what I have that I won't likely use. I'm not sure when that will happen, or where (here? on Instagram?), but I will keep you posted.

Have a great weekend, my friends.



I am really into this colour combo lately too. I am on the lookout for yarn in this colourway :)

It's funny how you can just not 'see' your stash and then one day it just shouts at you, "look at me"!😂😂😂


I'm having the same experience. Having always leaned toward the blues and grays, I am surprised by my need for color. I just started a quilt that I thought I was going to be using mostly grays and have found that's just not doing it for me.
Must be something in the air.....
Can't wait to see what you make!


I am all about browns lately...ranging from cream to chocolate. yummm...I want to destash too...but oh, the hassle. why cant everyone just be my neighbor and come to a garage sale!!!

Yes! And I love that I stumbled upon this combo. I'm excited to make all the things now!
