Gina is the quilter for March in our Care Circle of doGoodStitches. I love Gina's block choices, they are always straightforward to make and come together to create a big, fun impact.
This month, Gina chose the Souvenier Star from QuiltersCache, and asked that the star be in the Radiant Orchid ('Pantone's colour of the year') colour palette, the joining squares be light grey and the background white. I did a quick search in Pinterest for 'radiant orchid fabric' and Rachel posted this great blog link, which both helped in choosing my purple fabrics.
This one is Tula Pink's gorgeous Hummingbirds in dusk, from her wonderful Acacia line. The grey is Flea Market Fancy seeds.
And this one is the gorgeous Bird Dot in orchid from the fabulous Collage line by Carrie Bloomston of Such Designs - I can't wait for Carrie's new line Paint!
And here they are together. Gina has asked that if we didn't have radiant orchid fabrics in our stash, to use an aqua for the star. Looking at the blocks that everyone has made so far, the quilt will be really gorgeous, with plenty of little pops of colour amidst the purple and aqua.
