Stash Stack #8

I’ve been thinking in lime and aqua this week.

It isn’t a fully-formed idea. More hope at this point. I’m thinking along the lines of a Converging Corners quilt. Something bright and fresh and light. I wouldn’t want to use white or grey for a background which leaves me wondering what I could use.

My stash isn’t hardy enough for a full quilt. But now I have a guideline for buying.


Bright and light and fun! I’ve been saving those sheep for far too long. I want a quilt with them



The Prints (from Top to Bottom):

Sketch in Aqua from Timeless Treasures

DS Quilts Collections by Denyse Schmidt (I’m not sure which collection this print is from)

Petit Point in Turquoise by Swirly Girl Designs for Michael Miller

Modern Whimsy Sheep by Laurie Wisbrun for Robert Kaufman

Rain Bubbles in Green from Winterkist by Monica Solorio-Snow for Lecien


What do y’all think? Is there another color I should add in? What should I use for background. I like the idea of the Converging Corners quilt. I think I might have a charm pack of Modern Whimsy around my Studio that I could use for the centers even.

    A pale mint green would look cool and compliment the lime and aqua and keep the whole thing fresh and light!

    I think a cool, light grey would be gorgeous. Love the fabrics! Bring on spring!

    i love navy with this color combination. in fact i made a chevron quilt using the turquoise, lime and white fabrics, and the chevron in between with a solid navy.
