Choosing fabrics

Our new Saturday Sampler will be a mystery quilt project using 6 fabrics.  Each fabric just needs 2/3 of a yard.  But I'm really having trouble with ideas for what I want. Do I want to make a quilt with a theme?  If so, what kind of theme?  If not, do I just find a color scheme I like?  Maybe I just need to find a focus fabric I love and build my other choices from that.

I've been exploring http://design-seeds.com/  for color palette ideas.  So many beautiful ideas.


  1. Good luck picking fabric. This is the reason I can't do mysteries, I choose fabric after a pattern most of the time.

  2. Choose a focus fabric, then pick the fabric to go with it.
