Resistance is futile



Too busy to take on a very quick, easy and fun palette quilt?


Telling yourself you don't need another new project.  Well let me tell you, resistance is futile.


Take a look at this colour palette site my mate Corey Little Miss Shabby just wrote about in her Dead Simple QAL post.


Take a look at these pictures and tell me you don't want to make a quilt with one of those palettes.

  1. You crack me up! I have some habitat fat quarters, and was thinking that using the 4 fqs plus the saturated, coordinating colors would be great for the dead simple quilt along... even if it breaks the "solids only" rules. The color combos really are irresistible! :)

  2. Resistance of that cake is futile! Where's the nearest bakery? I would love to make one of these, but I have no solids and my local shops don't sell them and if I order any more fabric online, I may find myself single and alone on Christmas morning.

  8. You gave it an honest try, but I'm still resisting. As it is, I'm procrastinating by just stopping to read your blog. Now, back to my unfinished projects!

  9. Hi there!
    GRRRRRRH You have a lot to answer for!!
    So I was sitting with a lovely glass of chilled white wine in one hand, laptop in another & then I saw your blog entry & immediately I knew.. I could resist it no more... count me in... I LOVE the cool colour palette! I showed it to my husband (who is sitting watching the XFactor) & he immediately said... wow! I Love this (& turned his attention back to the XFactor!)
    So count me in!

  16. Hee Hee!--Glad I could help some more people spend some quality fabric money! =) I seriously could make a quilt out of just about every palette on that site--I love them all!

    Hugs!

  18. Stop it right now! Do you know how much trouble I had picking my palette? Now you go and tempt me these amazing colours! Nope...I made my choices and tucked them away awaiting cutting instructions. Oh,oh! This was supposed to be solids only? I'm in trouble .
