Lets talk about fabric selection... 

It's a good idea to select your focus fabrics first.  Then you can coordinate the other fabrics to go with it.

Include some basic design elements:
     -- light, medium and dark
     -- small, medium and large scale prints
     -- solids or subtle prints that "read" a solid 

Here's a picture of the fabrics I've chosen for my fabric pallet.


I've got them arranged by color in my Dollar Store basket.  You can see my 4 focus fabrics in the front. I'm going bright and scrappy and have pulled half of these fabrics from my stash.

You could also stay in a fabric family or collection.  Here's a list of different fabric collections:

     -- Batiks
     -- 1930' Reproductions
     -- Civil War Reproductions
     -- Holiday Prints
     -- Kaffe Fassett, Kim Diehl, or any other favorite fabric 
            designer
     -- Pastels
     -- Brights
     -- Novelty Fabrics (think "I Spy")
     -- Dark and Dirty

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's another fabric pallet that I'll try to work with simultaneously.  It's my Civil War reproductions.  In this pallet, I've limited the colors to black, brown, gold, tan, and a little red and blue.

Stylish Fabrics BERNINA
Celebrating 60 years
1958  to  2018

Celebrate with us by joining our block of the week! 
 You’ll get a free pattern for 1 block everyMonday, 
which you will find on our blog,
stylishfabricsandquilts.com.


Most blocks will be 8” square.  But we’ll make
  some smaller, duplicate blocks to make a
total of 60 blocks.  We’ll give you all of the blocks
by the end of November, so you’ll have December to
complete your quilt by the end of the year.

Put them together any way you like. 
You can make smaller quilts with fewer blocks. 
You can make a whole quilt from one or two blocks. 
Or you can make one, big, spectacular quilt. 

It’s just for fun! 
Use your stash, use a fat quarter bundle,
or buy yardage as you go.

We’ll meet once a month for show and tell and to get
help with your blocks.  Please join us on the last
Tuesday morning of each month at 10:00 am. 
Our first meeting will be January 30th.

We will also meet on the following dates:
February 27  
March 27  
April 24
May 29
