The designers are using Kaffe Fasset prints. Over the years I've collected a small stash of left over Amy Butler and other modern floral style prints, and I've decided to use some of them. I find that often sampler quilts can look a bit busy for my taste, I'm hoping that by keeping my pallette fairly muted it will help the quilt to look more tranquil.
I really like this first block, it's up on Sherri's blog and was easy to put together. I'm looking forward to the next block.

Winding Road Blue Colourway
I think my favourite is the green and blue acorn, far right in the above photo. They are all really usable prints, easy to mix in with the rest of the stash. And it is so nice to be able to purchase locally some fabric from a modern designer.

I also bought some of her first range for Spotlight and Joanne's, Picnic and Fairgrounds. I've made some purses and bags with it, and used some in an as yet unfinished Stacked Coins quilt. Lovely stash builder!
