Pulling some fabrics together

I have a patchwork cushion in mind for my sister’s Xmas present (I don’t *think* she reads this!)… I thought I’d use one of my favourite ways of pulling together fabrics and popped round to Design Seeds to find a colour palette to work with. I have a lovely cream-coloured solid that I wanted to use as my base, so selected yellow/cream for the palette choices. These carrots caught my eye at once….

Definitely a palette I can work with!  Here’s what I came up with:

First selection of fabrics for cushion


I am very pleased with this combo – it’s a real mix and match!  I feel like offering a prize for the first person who can name all the designers and collections mixed up here! Maybe I will… 😉 Have a go… you never know your luck..!

Hope you have lots of cracking plans for the weekend – with lots of lovely fireworks, sparkles, baked potatoes, parkin, treacle toffee and toffee apples for those of us in the UK. I am planning to be back tomorrow with a recipe for some totally rib-sticking lardy cake.

  1. Ha, I wouldn’t even have known where to start on the designers, but I do love the fabrics you chose and that pallet. I’m cutting out a bear today and manning a stall at a bear fair tomorrow

  2. Well, as well as the ones that Sarah has said, I think you also have Kona solid, ?? sevenberry dots and ?? Kaffe.
    Whatever, they are, I am sure the cushion will be absolutely gorgeous and your sister will love it.


  3. I recognize the two hope valley fabrics cos i’ve just made a purse using both of them! The others are familiar but don’t know the names.

  4. Oh cant resist a challenge! you’ve got two from Hope Valley by Denyse Schmidt, you’ve got a Farmdale print from Alexander Henry, you’ve got Hugs and Kisses from Loulouthi by Anna Maria Horner, and Hydrangia from cut out and keep by Heather Moore, the dots kinda look like Lecien, and I’m stumped with the green – which frankly is a relief cos I’d be a bit worried if I’d gotten them all right away…. I know, I’m a Fabric Addict…
