Building a stash based on color takes time. That's the idea behind this bundle. Most quilters wouldn't create a project with just these 12 fabrics, but it's a great starting point to begin pulling in other fabrics. We'll mix up this bundle in the future and hopefully offer a new color wheel bundle in a few months. When buying for my stash, I rarely buy more than a fat quarter. When doing a scrappy project based on color, I want to use as many fabrics as possible. I've found that blue-purple and true green tend to be the hardest fabrics to find. I have very little of these colors in my stash. Whenever I come across FQs in these colors I snatch them up.
Here are a few examples of my favorite types of blenders.
White-on-tone or Tone-on-white:
I love these type of prints. They go with anything and are usually simple designs that blend very well with other fabrics.
I don't have many stripes I consider blenders, but these are a few I dug up from my stash. The green Heather Bailey stripe is one I have used over and over again. It's definitely a favorite.
Generally these are small designs with just a few colors. They still read the color of the background fabric, but the simple patterns offer some variety.
By far this is my favorite type of blender to have in my stash. They are so versatile and easy to work with. They are perfect for some of the smaller color wheel projects I've done.
Every quilter needs a good selection of dots in the stash. They go with anything.
Hope you all have a great weekend, especially those celebrating Thanksgiving!
