I didn't have any Bubblegum Pink fabric so I picked up a piece yesterday with some nice texture. I already had my other choices lined up based on the Striped Polka Dots and wanted to keep it at 4 other selections because the BP is such a strong color and 3 of them had varying sizes of dots.
If I were to make dessert party napkins for a summer picnic, this would be my fabric choice. The brown next to the BP reminds me of a delicious Dark Chocolate Raspberry Truffle. Thanks Victoria.
Love this block..... tho it has some darker colors, to me it's bright and looks festive. Using stripes and polka dots together was a bit adventurous for me. I kept wanting to take one away but stuck with them. The slices of green made it "pop"! I will definitely use Bubblegum Pink in future projects including some with great prints.
Here are the first 11 out of 16 blocks for the quilt top. I like the direction of the blocks and will probably stick with the pattern. I noticed that most of my color of the week fabrics have only subtle patterns in them because I wanted the made fabric to stand out. And seeing what others are doing with color has gotten me looking at the process with new eyes. The last 3 colors of the week...Tomato Red, Grape and Bubblegum Pink are the brightest of the bunch as I expand my color comfort zone.
