Stacks of fabrics

So far we're seeing sketches, mosaics of what people are going to make and a few stacks of fabrics to tempt us.  Shruti Dandekar (13 Woodhouse Road) has chosen some lovely soft colours in 1930s style fabrics:
Fabric received from Spiced Coffee!!!
Nichol (Hardy Party of 5) has picked a stack of natural tones.  I am hopeless on colours so I don't exactly know why I'm trying to pin down what people have picked:
other additions??
Leila (needle and dime) (who deserves a pat on the back for her cushion being "explored" yesterday - ooh dear, that sounds like a euphemism) has chosen a palette of soft greys and greens with pops of pink and orange:
DQS10 Start
Silvana (Silort), possibly the most skilled (or maravilhosa, as they say in Brazil - I'm trying to sound clever but Silvana taught me this word this morning so don't be too impressed) paper piecer on Flickr, has chosen a few palettes including these beautiful pinks and greys:

And finally Colleen, the Busy Bean (Ooh I wonder if she's noticed that rhymes) has set out some fabrics and a sketch all in one go. Now that is efficient:

  1. the photos look so good on the blog - you picked some great choices!!

  2. Lynne, you are so nice with me! I feel honored with your opinion about my paperpiecing work!
    Specially because I admire your talentous patchwork and quilting work so much!

  3. I've got to be efficient, or nothing would ever get done! Now, let's just see if I can actually pull off what I've sketched out...

  4. Great collections...fyi, I added this blog to our blog roll at stash manicure as incentive, inspiration to new hopefuls down the road...
