Fabric Choices for a Sampler Quilt

If you’ve read my blog or followed me on Facebook, you know that I’m a scrappy quilter, so only using 3 fabrics — the same 3 fabrics throughout a quilt is a challenge. Especially since until recently I didn’t have much yardage.  Now I have yardage, but very little in the way of prints that could be used for borders.

I think I found 4 maybe 5 prints with enough yardage, but then finding 3 fabrics to go with it was a challenge.  I came up with these 2 options.

Background –  Soft yellow, “Dark” – Fuchia, “Medium” – Turquoise


Background – Gray/White dots, “Dark” – Fuchia, “Medium” – gold/yellow

The plan is to use the black with gold sparkles as the accent border and sashing.

Now I’m wondering if the second set of fabrics works with either the butterflies or abstract print.  I guess I’ll be sleeping on this for a bit until I get the pattern worked out.
