Today I’m going to pick out some fabric from the Spice Berry Cottage – a great online fabric store that I initially discovered on etsy when I was looking for some particular fabrics. I have continued to order from her and LOVE the quality of the fabric along with the quick delivery! I’m going to do some ‘Virtual Windown Shopping’ in Spice Berry Cottage’s etsy shop tonight to find some fabrics that would look great in the ‘Sew Intertwined Quilt Along’ being put on by my friend Melissa of Sew Bittersweet Designs and SewHappyGeek. I haven’t pulled fabric from my stash for this quilt along yet so I figured I’d do a little ‘Virtual Window Shopping’ for some inspiration. I hope this gets your brain turning too and you decide to join in the quilt along fun!
Fabric Requirements –
Fabric 1: 2/3 yard (orange in image above)
Fabric 2: 2/3 yards (green in image above)
Fabric 3: 2/3 yards (pink in image above)
Fabric 4: 2/3 yards (leaf in image above)
Fabric 5: 2/3 yards (multi colored in image above)
Yes – I combined fabrics 4 & 5.AGAIN.
Fabric 6: 1 yard (Daisy Janie Grey Print)
Fabric 7 – Background: 2 yard cut (solid)
I never decide on borders and bindings until my quilt is pieced so I’m not going to tell you what to use right now. I would order a bit extra of the fabrics and then you can usually come up with a border from that.
For this mix I started with the J’Adore Stella Eiffel Tower Fabric. It was the first one that caught my eye and I thought it would make a wonderful ‘background.’ The patchwork look from the Millie’s Closet fabric is sure to create a great, unique look in the stripes and triangles of the piece. Then, blending the ‘weaves’ in blues and pinks will help bring this entire look together.
This little ‘virtual shopping’ blogging project of mine has been really quite fun! I have at least one more shop I’m going to do some shopping at before I finally pick the fabrics I’m actually going to use for my own Intertwined Quilt!
Ok, I really love the idea of using a print for your background fabric. It really would pull the quilt together so nicely! Now when do we get to see your "FINAL" picks?!?
I have one more sponsor to 'shop' through and then I'll get at it! 🙂
