Mod Century: Palette Play

Mod Century: a fun collection of colorful prints

For my birthday last fall, my mom gave me a gift certificate to a great (little) local quilt shop, Sew to Speak. I actually went in on my birthday and they had a remnant of essex linen (linen/cotton blend fabric) that caught my attention.
I am a sucker for remnants. Therefore, I purchased this beautiful piece of fabric with a wee bit of my gift.
The piece I bought that day is the beige/grayish that looks just like classic linen and I realized it would be perfect with my Mod Century fabrics.
A bit of texture.
A bit of retro flare. (something about the linen says “macrame plant holder” to me)
A nice contrast to the riotous color and pattern in the Mod Century fabrics.

On another visit to Sew to Speak, I found (remnants) red and black, too. The black is cool: it has a white cross weave so it is really textury. Now I have the building blocks of a project!

I also decided to add the yellow and blue essex linen fabrics for a bit of punch. This is my next quilt!

I am linking up with Melissa and Shanna and setting my January goal to finish this quilt.

Happy January Quilting! it’s 2013, it’s cold, and we are off!

A Lovely Year of Finishes
