Pink Castle Fabrics Bundle Contest

Back in January, one of my first posts on this little blog was a fat quarter bundle I created for a contested hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop and Kokka Quilts.

While my fabric bundle didn’t catch the eye of the judges, I still enjoyed the process of looking through the fabric at that shop and picking out a selection that appealed to me.

Now, there is a similar contest hosted by Katy at I’m a Ginger Monkey and sponsored by Pink Castle Fabrics.

This time around, I was inspired by this living room I pinned on Pinterest awhile back.  I just love the contrast of the dark purple and yellow grounded by bits of green and gray.

I struggled with creating this fabric bundle a bit because I wanted to build it around a focal print, but I couldn’t really find anything that was co-dominated by my color choices.  Instead, I chose a solid in each color from the palette and then filled in with co-ordinating prints, trying to be conscious of including a range of tones within the color choices.  Admittedly, pairing purple with yellow might be a bold choice, but I think these would make a fantastic, vibrant quilt.
