Simple Sampler Quilt Along

I was on holiday in Corfu when Fiona announced the Sewing Directory Simple Sampler Quilt-Along. I love the sampler quilt look and there are some interesting techniques I haven’t tried before.

Colour inspiration was all around me.

Blues, greens, sun bleached stone, bright pink flowers, and some sparkle.

I’m also including the amazing teal/sea green I see when I’m swimming in the sea – bit difficult to get a picture of that!

I love scrappy quilts (and I’ve got a lot of scraps to use up!), so I’ve pulled out some smaller pieces from the big bag in the cupboard. Liberty Lifestyle, Amy Butler, screenprints from Umbrella prints and some scraps of pink Gypsy Bandanna from around 6 years ago.

Metallic Essex linen for the golden light and sparkly sea. Pictured with Moda Mixologie green and stone scraps.

These are bigger pieces. The blue floral is Liberty City Poplin (from a dress which didn’t suit me), chambray left over from a skirt, Rifle Paper Co Rosa Floral and Rhoda Ruth Starry Sky in teal and shadow.

I’m looking forward to taking part, and seeing all the other lovely colour combinations.
