Thank you so much for all of your positive feedback on my Cross Strings block!! There has been some interest in a tutorial or a quilt along. I think that sounds like a lot of FUN! Let me see what I can come up. : )
Today, I've got a new baby quilt in the works. The Mother-to-be likes purple and the nursery will have a safari theme. My goal is to make a soft, happy quilt that will grow with the new baby.
I really like this print from Central Park by Kate Spain. I'm using the third one from the left. Purple? Check! Animals? Check! Fun, fresh color palette? Check!
I chose my colors based on the print. I'm using mostly purples and yellow with a just hint of taupe and blue for balance. There is a variety of values within each color and I stayed away from anything too light since the animal print is on a white background. Add in a mix of scale and shapes and we're looking good. Aren't they pretty together?
