Temptation, Temptation, Temptation

I haven’t even finished my first quilt yet, but I’m already thinking about the second … and third … and fourth … And it’s all the fault of the Fatquarter Shop and their fiendish newsletter which leads me oh-so-much into temptation every single time I find it in my inbox. (Poor little me!)

But how to choose? Not just which pattern (I’m thinking about trying out some sort of scrappy log cabin), but, more importantly, which fabrics? Here’s a selection of my favourites. What do you think? Any favourites?

Rouenneries is, hands down, my current favourite. The prints have been inspired by old French fabrics – don’t they look wonderfully elegant, but in a somewhat faded, shabby way?

And here’s Nostalgia. Aaaaah, Nostalgia. Makes you think of an English garden, doesn’t it? To strengthen the impression of a garden, one could always go with the greens only. Like this:

Or perhaps another Glacé quilt? (Minus the blue again. I don’t think it really fits with all the other colours.)

Blessings is more earthy and looks as if it would keep you nicely warm in winter. 🙂

Aster Manor – very feminine.

Alliance – another collection in more earthy tones.

And now some collections which would make fantabulous coin quilts (small stacks of colour against a solid – quite often white – background):

Thoughts? Ideas?
