Grape and Lime

greens and purples completed

This quilt (first talked about here and here) is all done!  I bound it in a purple check, and used a green dot fabric from my stash for the backing.  It finished (after washing) at 30” x 34”.

I had mentioned before that all of the fabric for this quilt came from my stash.  To be more specific, some of the fabric was left over from this quilt, and some of the prints came from a sample card like this one:
(just the flat fabric with the label – not the folded fabrics on top)

pinks and orange

A year or so ago I heard about an annual sample sale that this woman holds in her garage.  I went to check it out and was blown away by the boxes upon boxes of fabric samples she had.  After spending a good hour digging through everything, I walked away with about 8 sets of fabric like this one.  The fabrics I used in the green and purple quilt came from a sample card that was similar to the pink one above.  It is a line by RJR Fabrics called Crazy for Dots & Stripes. 

You can see the entire collection here.  My favorite print from the green/purple colorway was this one:


And it looks like you can still find some here!
