Need help? Below is a tip for choosing a colour palette if you don’t want to be completely blindfolded when pick fabric:
“Improvisational” patchwork can take many forms:
1. Super scrappy: whatever comes to hand
2. Organized scrappy: colours thoughtfully organized with a background fabric to tie it all together, but still scraps.
3. Colours chosen by you that have a theme. For example, the colour palette of your living room or pick an item that gave you a colour inspiration, such as a vase, a decorator pillow or a photo of colourful buildings in Spain. This can be fabric purchased specifically for this project
