Snowflake Shimmer Quilt Along

I have decided to join Yvonne Fuchs, aka Quilting Jetgirl on a quilting adventure.  You can see her original quilt here.

I have been stewing over fabric selection for a week.  Obviously, I have plenty in my stash, but I just don’t have enough of anything for one solid background.  If I’m buying one fabric, I may as well buy them all, right?  My new living room has a grey sofa, and hints of aqua in the kitchen, so I am going to use that as my color inspiration.

I ordered my fabrics from Fat Quarter Shop, one of Yvonne’s sponsors.  Here is my shopping cart – I can’t wait for my order to arrive.  I chose to use the Michael Miller Cotton Couture collection that Yvonne is using.  I went with Graphite for the background, Turquoise for the center section, and Aqua for the small squares.

I may tone it down a bit and move the aqua to the middle color and choose a lighter shade for that position.  I’m not sure.  I am also considering finding some aqua prints to sneak into the corners, but I may try to control my scrappy urges.  Making a whole quilt top with just three fabrics might kill me.

I ordered some Tula Pink for the backing because, why not.  Look at how perfect it is!

I can’t wait for the fabrics to arrive, so I can start fondling them.
