Hello Everyone,

If you have been reading my blog for a while there are two things that you know about me for sure.

1. I love bright fabrics.
2. I love all things Judy Niemeyer.

In June, I will be taking another class with Judy. I have taken quite a few with her, I guess I am somewhat of a groupie... Anyway, I started to pick out fabrics for this project and I began to audition my choices.

I pulled the above bolts of Kaffe Fassett fabrics and one batik. I love to audition fabrics because it really can help to show the variation or lack of variation in your choices. But this is definitely the color palette that I am going for with this one.

This is the project I will be doing. She shows two versions on this cover sheet and I will be working on the blue/yellow/green version. Slight difference in the color layout.

Above you can see I ended up swapping out one of the pinks (the top one). I liked the Cloisonne from Kaffe better. There was definitely more color and interest in this one for my purposes.

I do love this color palette and I had said in my Quilt Magazine Blog Post, we get color inspiration from everywhere. So where did I get my inspiration for this one...

Yes, from my beloved mismatched Sol-Mate socks. I have a drawer full and they are my favorites. But this is one of my favorite color combos.

So then I started to doubt the green batik and how light it was, so I then grabbed a different green batik.

This batik is slightly brighter and darker and I think it is a better fit. What do you think?

Here is my final selection in order, top to bottom:

What projects are you starting on and how do you go about picking your fabrics?
