Winnings and a Plan

Just the other day, I was delighted to get an email telling me that I had won a charm pack of Amy Ellis' Modern Neutrals from Quilt Taffy.  That link will take you to the blog, but there is also a wonderful Etsy store for Quilt Taffy where you can get your own sweet treats!  So if you are wanting your own Modern Neutrals charm pack you can go there and get it - along with a lot of other wonderful stuff.  If you get more than one item use the "convo" feature and Corrie will set up a special listing for you and combine shipping (saving you $)

So here is the charm pack:

and here it is spread out with the batiks I want to use it with:
See how those teal/aqua bits go so well with my batiks.  I think I have some warm batiks I can add to go with the other colors.  But seriously the green batiks make those reds and the grays pop.

One of the designs is so simple -and it would make a great background fabric for a quilt.  It is available in every colorway in the the set.  Here it is up close.
There is also a teal/aqua one and a tan one, but I didn't think to pull them to the top.

Now - what type of pattern or quilt design will I use????  I guess you will have to wait and see.  I plan on starting this TODAY!   hooray, back to sewing for now.
