How to Mix Fabric Collections

How to Mix Fabric Collections

I have yet to meet a quilter who can resist a pretty stack of a fat quarter bundle. What is it about the ribbon that seems to keep us from digging in? Collections are beautiful, I’ve designed them myself and know how much care goes into the color selection of each one. Yet... I can’t help but tear into mine and mix them with friends! It’s so satisfying to see a collection from one or three designers playing well with others.

Tips: 

  1. Open them up!

  2. Sort them first by color.

  3. Then sort them by scale of print.

  4. Toss them in your stash with all similar colors. I keep mine in these bins.

  5. Or keep your new groups out for a bit and decide which quilt you’d like to sew them into and write it down in Plan to Quilt
