My absolute favourite colour combination in fabric's is "pink and green"..oh yes; the moment I walk into a Patchwork Shop, my body steers to anything pink and green...it's like a magnet....I don't have to do anything at all...and; I have no trouble coming home with some delicious fabric!
However; I got to thinking lately, that I must be walking past lots and lots of colour opportunities for my projects...so........why don't I put the blinkers on to pink and green for awhile and; choose another combination then; see what happens........
I've always liked blue and.....yellow is a complimentary colour so Blue and Yellow it is;
My sister also......gave me this lovely bundle of blue and yellow fat quarters....do you think she is trying to tell me something ??
Well; my sister is the oldest and one should always listen to their older sister...so...... I promptly placed an order with one of my favourite on-line shops 'Shabby Fabrics' USA and added these lovely Buttery Yellow and Murky Blue fat quarters to my stash;
Now it's one thing to test yourself out with a few fat quarters...but what about stepping outside the square with different colours for a big project???
Well; my favourite designer Leanne Beasley from Leannes House designed a beautiful quilt named 'Butterfly Garden and.......Leanne made up her quilt in my favourite colours....easy and safe;
BUT....Leanne encouraged her students to "stretch their boundaries on colour" AND these girls really put the blinkers on to what is safe and; went for some great colour combinations.......take a look at the results;
