It's the first weekend of the Thrive fabric palette. I always love working with the new color palette and generally start off easy just playing with the way the fabric colors interact with each other. I saw a quilt in the April/May issue of Quilter's Newsletter that I liked and chose that one to play with today.
But first, if you are interested in purchasing the fabric you can get all of the information here. The quilt is called Let's Dance and is done scrappy with a black background. I wanted to see how it would look in my Spring colors.
Here's the block.
As I work with this palette you will see it often used with white as a background. I think these bright colros will look great with white. This version uses the Thrive
Less white and adding in the lightest value of Blue Sky.
This one uses the Blue Sky gradient but add a little of the Lime green as a highlight.
This one uses the Abundance gradient and rotates the border blocks for a totally different look.
Add some sashing and change the coloring for the border.
In this version I made the block background dark and the block and sashing light.
Back to the Blue Sky gradient with a dark background and light blocks and sashing.
