Hi! It's been awhile since I've quilted and I am trying to put together some colours for a quilt for my niece. I haven't settled on a pattern yet, but it will be a lap quilt, no more than 5' square.

Here are the fabrics I have grabbed from my stash. They are all cotton, but the big pink piece is flannelette. I haven't unfolded it, but I think it will be big enough for the backing.


How do they look together?

Looking for teal/turquoise/aqua, grey and white (or a combo) fabric for a quilt.

Not blowing smoke, I love these colors!  They are feminine, but don't scream it. Very soft and almost neutral. (which I am drawn too). But my favorite is something I try to hit - the blanket and colors will grow with her. Depending on the size, this can be something she uses for many, many years.

And flannel is good for cuddlin!

I'd love to see the final piece when complete!

Pretty. Subtle shades and patterns. It's going to look great.

Thankyou! I definitely wanted it to be subtle. Glad you like it. I will certainly post the finished result. Just don't hold your breath waiting to see it. I have quilt ideas for years, so it may not happen anytime soon!
