Mosaic Tuesday - Navy, Papaya, Butter, & hints of Green and a Giveaway! {Quiltspiration 365}

Thanks to some of the lovely ladies over at Late Night Quilters I'm happy to introduce a new series of weekly posts I'm calling Mosaic Tuesdays (for lack of a better name at this point).  It's part of an effort we're calling quiltspiration365‬, intended to fulfill your every need when it comes to quilty inspiration 365 days a year.  You can find more posts about the series on Facebook and instagram using the hashtag #quiltspiration365 as well as links to the other posts this week below.  I'll be sharing color mosaics that inspire me, and hopefully you as well.  This will be an interactive series so I'll encourage you to post links to the color palettes that have been inspiring you lately!  Feel free to use these to inspire your projects I just ask that you link back to the original color pallet post to give credit.  So without further adu...

Today's mosaic palette is mood and sweet at the same time.  Dark Navy is balanced by Rich Papaya.  Bright Buttery Yellow give is a pop, and hints of Soft Green take it beyond the basic red, yellow, and blue color palette.


The best part about today is that I'm giving away a Fat Quarter bundle from my own stash in this color palette.  What do you think?  Do you like this palette in fabric as much as in a mosaic?  I do for sure.  Use the Rafflecopter widget at the end of the post to enter the giveaway.  Drawing ends on Friday, August 1st and I'll draw and announce a winner on Saturday.


This bundle includes 8 fat quarters of quilt shop quality fabrics, two yards worth of fabric!



Be sure to search for the hashtag #quiltspiration365 for even more inspiration!

  7. Inspiration for colors usually comes from nature - gardens, storms, animals, etc. inspiration for quilting usually comes from the quilt top!

  9. I find quilting inspiration in a lot of places, but I am drawn to the lines and patterns both natural and man-made the most. Color tends to be secondary for me, although sometimes I start with a color and go from there (just less often). :)

  13. Another gorgeous mosaic! I can't decide if I like this week's or last week's better. Walks are great for inspiration (gotta get up from that sewing machine and stretch every once in awhile).

  30. Love your colors. Inspiration for me usually comes from taking a walk or looking at others quilts. Really nature is the best. Yesterday I saw a purple and peach moth. Never saw that before. Odd colors that I would never put together but Mother Nature did.
