Fabrics for a new project

I started quilting the value quilt but encountered some technical problems. Hopefully they'll be solved when I find a walking foot for my vintage Bernina 807.
In the meantime I'm starting a new project, a blue & green quilt for my son.

I started with my most favorite task: pulling out fabrics. This time I'm going to use mainly new fabrics, bought recently in New York. I'm so excited to start cutting these wonderful fabrics!

I really like this combination, but tried adding some reds to see the effect:

What do you think? I think the red adds some interest, but will have to check on the design wall.

This is the blue-green combination, nice and safe

And this is the collection with the red addition:

Off to the scary and exciting part of cutting the fabrics!


  1. I'm awful at pulling fabrics and trying to see what goes! They are fabulous fabrics though, very boy friendly :)
    Can't wait to see what you do with them!

  2. Perhaps the reds in small doses--little sparkles. Love your new fabrics.
