Star Light, Star Dark QAL

Quilty Habit
Jessica at Quilty Habit is organising a quilt along in which the participants will be making a quilt of traditional blocks but in a modern layout. I liked the idea of this challenge as soon as I read about it, but it's taken me quite a while to pull enough fabrics together to meet the criteria: three colours, of which we need at least six or seven light fabrics and six or seven dark ones, while achieving enough contrast within the six colour-groups.

Here is my choice of fabric:

The three piles in the foreground are my ultimate choice and the two piles behind are the fabrics I rejected as being too yellow for the green group, and too red/pink for the purple group. The top of the purple pile is a difficult shade: here it looks blue, but with blue fabrics it definitely looks purple! As I'm not using blue I decided to leave it in for now and see how it goes. Not all the pieces here are full FQs I'm hoping that some of the smaller pieces will be large enough for the smaller stars.

I'm linking up to

so hop over there to see other participants' fabric choices.

Happy sewing
