Colour Palette: Aqua & Grey

I’ve always thought that I used a wide variety of colours, but recently I’ve looked back over a few of my sewing projects and realised that there was a pattern emerging. It seems I’m a big fan of aqua and grey!

My Quilted Sewing Machine Cover is possibly one of my favourite projects to date. The fabric came from a charm pack of Half Moon Modern by Moda. I chose the aqua, grey and red from the charm pack and loved the combination immediately! Red and pink goes well with his colour palette if you are looking to add a third shade into the mix.

I continued the trend with the fabric basket, and most recently was asked to make a quilt for an Ovarian Cancer Awareness fundraiser. Teal is the colour associated with Ovarian Cancer Awareness so I used a palette of teal, grey and white fabric to complete the quilt. I was a bit sad to hand it over for the auction – I might have to make another one for myself!

Another firm favourite for me is the grey dandlion print fabric in this quilt and used for the fabric basket. It is a home decorator weight fabric I bought on a whim and I’m so glad I did – I’ve used it so often!

I’m starting to incorporate brights in with the aqua fabrics to bring in pops of colour, like in this pouch. It’s a great scrap buster and I’m making one every couple of weeks and stashing them away for teacher gifts

What colours are inspiring you at the moment?

  1. I am just in love with those exact colors right now! Have to get sewing and stop buying and stashing them!! Looking now for some in Christmas colors. Patti

  2. I find it hard to pick a favourite colour. I love the combo you have and it's very 'Ros'! I think it would also work with orange or yellow as well as red and pink like you said. I'm loving emerald green this week!
