For my last sample of the Flor pattern I decided to use prints instead of the usual solids that I have always used since I started in the world of quilting.
I noticed that the pattern was easily adaptable to making a scrappy version, so I went for a colour scale from pale pink to red.
Searching on the net I found that Cottoneer had FQ bundles of coordinating colour fabrics, so I purchased six different bundles containing five FQ each, making the perfect selection!
Now each row of the quilt had five different prints within the same colour shade: Pink, Peach, Yellow, Orange, Purple and Red. In this selection there are fabrics from AGF, Figo, RK, Cotton+Steel and Moda.
For the background I went for Kona Cotton in white. It’s the perfect backgorund for a scrappy quilt.
With the white background we achieve two purposes: on the one hand, that the colors and patterns stand out and have the necessary presence. On the other hand, we achieve that there is a cohesion between the different tones and that it does not become a strange mixture of graphics and colours. It is important to have a balance in the final look of the quilt.
