True Colors Blog Hop & Giveaway

Monday, February 3, 2014
Today is my stop on the True Colors Blog Hop!



I worked with True Colors by Joel Dewberry...

and Botanique by Joel Dewberry

I made a Baby Size quilt top from my Disco quilt pattern.


It was fun to mix the True Colors with Botanique. 

 Now I just need to decide on what fabrics I want to use for the backing and the binding!

Joel's saturated colors worked great with my Disco quilt pattern. Disco loves to play with high & low contrasting colors, so the True Colors fabrics + Joel's fabrics played so well together on this quilt top.

I might even add more fabrics to make this a lap size so I can snuggle with it on the couch.
