You know I love sewing with basic fabric collections — they are so versatile and every time new colors are added to a line of basic prints, they just get even better. Speckled is one of my favorites and I had a lot of fun putting together a variety of warm shades for the cover of the Melody Quilt Pattern.
This started out as personal challenge because I have a hard time using yellow in quilts. While I'm not going to join the yellow fan club anytime soon, it turns out that I do like yellow as long as it is used in combination with other warm colors.
I put together a list of the colors that I used in my quilt
Originally, I had planned on making the quilt with cool colors which are a little more in my comfort zone. I am glad I went out on a limb because I love how the cover quilt turned out, but I would love to have time to make this version some day, too.
And here is a list of the cool colors in the mockup. If you make this version, please send me a photo so I can live vicariously through you!
Speckled is widely available (and hopefully will be for a long time) and you can pick up a copy of the Melody Quilt in my shop!
