My fantasy FQ Bundle

When I saw the fun going on over at Quokka Quilts, I just couldn't resist joining in! I really enjoyed putting together this FQ bundle from all the fab fabrics over at the Fat Quarter Shop. The colour palette is inspired by some of the goodies I made for my secret partner for Cindy's Goodie Swap earlier this year. Eva looked for grey, plum and aqua and it was totally out of my comfort zone in terms of what I normally work with. I was also somewhat limited in the grey and plum colours in my stash. But I really enjoyed putting it together so when I saw this challenge I decided to revisit that concept and put together a fantasy bundle based on it - the sort of fabrics I would have loved to have had at hand.

My FQS Blogger Bundle

I was intending to do this later in the week when I got home from my parents, but couldn't wait till then! So here is the result of a couple of hours of hogging the PC and being unsociable this evening...sorry, family! I think it works well - its much more grown up than  my normal choices!! I'm loving the cool tones and while the palette is limited, I tried to concentrate on the values and the prints and make it really interesting with those elements.


The fabrics are:

1. Robot Factory Teal Circuit Board
2. Bazaar Style Night Moroccan Streets
3. Gray Garden Pindot
4. Outfoxed Purple Triangle Toss
5. Orchid Gray Gray Sweet Posie
6. Flora Turquoise Lattice
7. Going Coastal Gray Sea Kelp
8. Flora Turquoise Garden Damask
9. Heirloom Amethyst Empire Weave
10. Terrain Foliage Seapod
11. Oval Elements Juicy Grape
12. Juicy Blossoms Grey Hyacinth Borders
13. Kona Aqua
14. Kona Coal
15. Kona Plum

I'm linking this up to the Quokka Quilts post. Lots of fun - you should definitely check it out, particularly as there is a great prize on offer to the winner!

I'm loving seeing these popping up all over the place! I'm dying to get started on mine tomorrow now I'm back at home again...

I love the fabrics you chose - I just got the Outfoxed line in the mail, and picked a similar color scheme to you. I even used the same bazaar one that you've got in your top row, too!

Good luck!
