Mosaic Tuesday - Navy, Orchid, Fuschia, & Natural {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  #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.  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...

Inspired by this photograph

Radiant Orchid, this year's Pantone color of the year plays perfectly with Bright Fuschia.  These power house colors are offset by the soft and warm Natural.  Navy grounds the whole thing and keeps it from floating away.

I know brown isn't big in the modern quilting movement but there is just something I really love about a good brown/natural off-setting some good, bright colors.  What are your thoughts on the color brown?

  1. Brown can be the perfect color sometimes. I do tend to stay away from it (and pink and red...), but it really is just a warmed up neutral that can mix in brilliantly.

  2. Absolutely lovely... balm for my eyes on this cool rainy day!

  3. You are so awesome at putting these together! Looking for a fall/winter wardrobe palette and I love this one :)


I love hearing from you!
