Stash Play - Saffron Tones

It's Stash Play time and I hope you'll play along. This is great little game to practice colour and fabric selection. As I explained last week, the 'rules' are really simple. Go to Design Seeds (or any other palette source) and choose a colour palette. The palette you choose can be one that you actually want to use in a quilt or one you just want to play with.

Once you've chosen your palette, find fabrics in your stash or even from online shops that work with the palette. You can stick to the palette closely or use it as a jumping off point for finding a solid fabric selection from your stash. No big colour analysis needed or even doing solids vs. prints like I did last week or the week before; just find fabrics that work with the palette. Also, feel free to choose more fabrics than the number of colours on the palette. My palette today has five colours, but my print fabric selection has 13. Do a blog post and link up below so we can learn from you. Sound good? Excellent.

Let's play...

Today's challenge for me is Saffron Tones from Design Seeds. Warm colours, cool neutrals.
