Yarn Dyed Linen Patchwork Quilt: Getting Started

One of my favorite fabric designers is Denyse Schmidt. I mean, she's an icon. Her fabrics are available through quilt shops across the world, but her DS Quilt fabrics are also available at JoAnn stores. I make my fair share of stops at JoAnn's on any given week (too many!), but it's always a fun day when I've discovered new DS Quilt fabrics have been released. Recently, I picked up a small bundle of new prints from the Piccadilly line.
 The prints from this line are bold. The pink is bright. I ended up initially choosing some of the more subtle prints. I got them home and wondered what the heck I was going to do with them. They don't match a lot of my stash, but then I started digging and found my Essex yarn dyed linen blend fabric in Indigo and thought it would be the perfect complement to these prints. I continued to rummage through my stash and found some other complementary prints in yellow, pink and navy.

I wanted a quick project so I decided to start a basic square patchwork quilt.
I told you I've been bouncing around lately and starting more projects than I should, but I just couldn't resist on this one. More to come soon!

Have a great weekend!
