Challenge Rules for Stitch Along September W1
In the Southern Hemisphere Spring has begun. Flowers are starting to bloom and everything is beginning to look fresh so this month I wanted to use bright colors. Really bright colors. Will you join me?
September Week 1 Rules
Select a multicolor fabric that has at least 3 or 4 bright colors, but best if it has 6. Here are some examples of fabric that I have which could work.
Once you have selected a fabric, you need to add 6 plain fabric from the colors in the multicolor fabric. No more than 6, but if you cannot find 6 then at least 3. 4 or 5 will work too, you'll just have to double up to make up to the six needed.
Here is what I selected for three of the fabrics above.
This set I like a lot.
This one just has four, so I'll have to repeat two.
One last fabric you'll need and that's a background fabric. Pick a light background so your brights stand out. If your brights are a little light, then you could use a very dark background as long as it contrasts the multicolor fabric as well. Here are some ideas for you.
Other things you'll need are:
- A small amount of fusible web (this will be optional)
- Thread for piecing and quilting
- Light weight batting or pellon
- A backing fabric or you could use one of the above fabrics if you have enough
- sewing machine, accessories and quilting supplies like rotary cutter etc
Collect them all up and send in a photo so we can build a gallery. I cannot wait to see!
