The Brown, Orange and Blue bundle

Here's another one that seems rather masculine (at least color-wise). I'm liking it...what do you think? I've been having so much fun playing around with these fabrics and seeing what I can come up with. I'm pushing the boundaries of the colors I normally go for. I'm finding what works together, I'm getting better at editing my choices. It's really great practice! It would be great if people who stop by could give me their thoughts and opinions. I'm not fishing for compliments, you can even tell me you don't like it and maybe suggest what you think would have worked or what didn't. Just don't be rude of course.

The Gender Neutral Bundle?

I'm thinking this looks kind of masculine in colors, but I happen to love these colors and would love a quilt made with them. What do you think? Is this more of a masculine color scheme or would women (other than myself) like it too?

Tints and Shades Bundle

I just thought Purple, Orange, Yellow and Blue would look good together so I picked on light and one dark of each and then a light to dark set of greys! I like it!

Grey Skies Are Gonna Clear Up

For this bundle I thought I'd put a little bit of the smokey blues and light blues in it for that stormy sky look, with some hints of yellow and sunny orange for when the storm passes and the Sun makes an appearance.

The Chocolate Covered Strawberries Bundle

I was just searching my brain for something to inspire another bundle for the contest. I was hungry and I had a sweet tooth. So, obviously I decided on chocolate covered strawberries. I wonder if there's anyone who could resist those?

I have strawberries growing in my garden right now and I'm hoping I will get some this year. If I do, you can safely guess what I'll be doing with them. What do you think of this selection? Does it work or was I just out of my mind? I'm always happy to hear other's thoughts.

The Sound of Rain on a Tin Roof Bundle

I love this one! I built the fabrics around the beautiful Arabesque in Ivory fabric. My favorite color is blue, so this one just makes me feel good. It's soothing, kind of like the sound of rain on a tin roof--a sound I know so well.

Fabrics in this bundle:
Arabesque in Ivory - Love by Amy Butler
Lodge Lattice in Lilac - Aviary 2 by Joel Dewberry
Nora's News Ink - Reunion by Sweetwater
Cross Weave in Blue and Aqua - by Moda
Fish Tales in Ocean - Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket
Waves Mist - Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket
Sea Garden in Mist - Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket
Four Square in New Day - Hope Valley by Denyse Schmidt
Herringbone in Pond - Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry
Tape Measure in Aqua - Made with Love Canvas by Moda
Lattice in Dusty Blue - Metro Living by Robert Kaufman
Nap Sack in Lake - Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry

The bundle with a "Vintage feel"

Here's another bundle for the contest. I really like these colors together, it has somewhat of a vintage feel. Like they once were bright, but now they've faded with age. What do you think? This is such a fun exercise to get better at picking fabrics and color schemes. These fabrics are all for sale at Pink Castle Fabrics.

Another Bundle...

I just love to play around and see what I can come up with. Here's another entry for the contest being held at I'm A Ginger Monkey. I just love the Washi Tape fabric and the Fly A Kite fabric and to me they look like they'd go together well, so I just started out with those two and built around them. I'm always open to constructive criticism on how I can improve my fabric pairing skills. Do these look Ok together?

Bundle inspired by my neice's watercolor painting

This is my first entry for a contest being held at I'm A Ginger Monkey. It was inspired by a watercolor painting my 4 year old niece painted. I really don't know how "conventional" this color scheme is, but I really loved it in her painting. I wish I could have found a few more purple fabrics at the shop, but right now there wasn't a huge selection that I liked. I still like how it turned out! The photo below the bundle is the inspiration. I do apologize for the terrible photo. See the little splotch of grey in there? It's mostly pink, purple and yellow, but I just loved that little splash of grey and that's why I included a touch of it in the bundle.
