Fabric pull fun!!!

Posted by Gudrun Erla on

Are you joining Bonnie Hunter and making a Grassy Creek Mystery quilt? Or maybe planning to quilt along with Terry Atkinson? Here are my fabric pulls for the fictional quilts I'll be creating, as shown during Happy Friday, November 6, 2020. To hear why I chose these colors, click on the link to Happy Friday below.

Happy Friday, November 6, 2020 on GE Designs YouTube channel, HERE.

Bonnie Hunter has released her colors for the upcoming Grassy Creek Mystery Quilt. You can see in the first photo the five colors she will be using. I will be not joining in but I always love, love, love pulling fabrics so here's what I came up with after a quick walk through of our Fabric by the Yard area of the warehouse. I have linked the products for you following each photo. For more info about the quilt along, HERE is a link to Bonnie's blog post. 

Above, Bonnie's color recommendations and below, my choices:
Thatched, including sections from the Solana collection by Robin Pickens for Moda Fabrics. All are found in the Fabric 1 Yard collection, follow the links below 
More fabrics from a variety of manufacturers, all with a lively pattern for more movement within your quilt. From the Fabric 1 Yard collection unless noted, follow the links below.
  1. Spectrastatic Dust 9248 L1 - 1 YARD CUT from Andover Fabrics  
  2. Spectrastatic Dust 9248 L1 - 3 YARD CUT from Andover Fabrics
  3. Holiday Treats Red Dots 9493 R from Andover Fabrics

  5. Floral Elements Lettuce 527 from Art Gallery Fabrics

  7. Nature Elements Mimosa 105 from Art Gallery Fabrics 

For the rebels amongst us, an entirely different colorway! It's always okay to use fabrics that make you happy, recommendations are just that. This is how I would substitute for red, orange, green, charcoal and yellow:

  1. Spectrastatic Tar 9248 L - 1 YARD CUT from Andover Fabrics
  2. Spectrastatic Tar 9248 L - 3 YARD CUT from Andover Fabrics
  3. Redux Calypso Polaris T1 from Andover Fabrics

Terry Atkinson's quilt along will be held on her Facebook page, look for her there to follow along. She recommends fat quarters, so I would check out the these two colorful Fat Quarter bundles. She will also be demonstrating how to use my GEasy Point Trimmers for the folded corners in her pattern. If you haven't yet watched my Stripology 101 tutorial using the Point Trimmers, that link is below, too.
