BM&I #49: Parterre block 16

I absolutely love this one!

Deep, rich dark blue and bright colours, one a huge blowsy floral and the other a cute, folksy print, but with very similar colour values. I adore the contrast of scale and the similarities of colour.

Here’s Block 16 of the Parterre quilt:

 Bee, Myself and I is a forum for ‘selfish sewing’; any stitchery which is purely for pleasure and not to a deadline or for anyone else. The original concept belongs to Carla of Granny Maud’s Girl.

Until next time…

    I am in love with the chicken fabric! Do you happen to recall where you got it/the name of the print? *crosses fingers and hopes it is something I can get in California* 😹

      I bought a fat quarter without any selvedge, so I’m afraid not… But I could see if they have any more fat quarters of it next time I’m in the shop, if you like? I did an online search of all their quilting fabrics to see if they have yardage but couldn’t see it. So sorry!

    That is a lovely one Kate! I often read your posts in the same sitting as Jean’s and love the way your strong, bold colours and her more subtle ones set each other off! Did Mouse help you choose these?

      He says he has trouble choosing fabrics, bearing in mind he mostly sees in blue and yellow, but he’s good about keeping me company while I do the choosing… He certainly prefers bright colours too!

    Meanwhile, it’s the striped head on the flower that catches my eye and makes me smile. 🙂

  9. Do love those dark blue prints! Beautiful.
