The Quilt Sampler 2 class started on Thursday, so I thought I’d start by posting my colour palette and fabric choices. I’ve decided to do shades of grey (no surprise), aqua and mustard. My inspiration photos are this and this. I really love the soft, silvery look of these photos and also the proportion of each colour. I’m going to try to keep referring to these images to see if I can achieve the same feeling with my quilt blocks.
I’m still using Pinterest like crazy, especially to keep a board with colour palette ideas for future projects. It is so perfect for organizing your inspirations. If you’re not using Pinterest yet and want an invite, just let me know.

i am digging on pinterest as well. i could spend hours looking around and getting inspired!
looking forward to seeing the quilt take shape.
Wow, you’re off to a crafty start to 2011!
Please send a pinterest invite my way. Seems like a good way to catalogue all the pieces of inspiration (my favourites list is out of control under my current system).
I love that colour palette, Karyn! In fact, that’s how I’m trying to decorate my sitting room (it’s taking me too long this time around). Only I’ve thrown some salmon-pink in the mix:
(and now I’m thinking that my yellow is too acid – should be more mustardy!)
I love your blog. I like it when people show things they are making doing and inspire others in turn. Please send a pinterest invite along to me.
And keep up with the great work!
you inspired me.

Oh yes, I love pinterest, I’ve only been using it for the past few months but my boards are expanding at a fast rate! Its such a great place to record inspirational images and record the source for future reference too. And I just pinned your photo of your beautiful fabric, beautiful colours 🙂
I always find something to further inspire my craftiness on your blog… and now a way to organize my inspirations? Pininterest sounds obsession -inducing… please send an invite my way? Thank you.
I find a lot of inspiration in your blog, especially your clothes making posts. Are you still sending invites to Pinterest – if so, could you send one my way too? thanks so much
