Just a general fyi before we get into the post – none of the links within this post are affiliate links and I have not be compensated in any way for them. The fabric links all go to Fat Quarter Shop and the links for the quilts go to their respective creator.
At first I went in search for a metallic for the black and grey because I had a general idea of what I was thinking with the colors I found within the image. Then I found these! And they have each color in my palette! After I realized that they have fabrics that match my colors my mind went into overdrive.
Fabrics from my palette from top to bottom:
Artisan Spirit Shimmer Metallic Ebony Fresco
Artisan Spirit Sandscapes Metallic Charcoal Dunes
Artisan Spirit Sandscapes Metallic Sunglow Striations
Artisan Spirit Sandscapes Metallic Cloud Striations
Artisan Spirit Sandscapes Metallic Violet Striations
Artisan Spirit Sandscapes Metallic Lime Striations
My thinking was that these would make an amazing modern geometric quilt with lots of negative space done in the black! I envisioned a quilt pattern similar to these. Lots of negative space with room in between so that the colors really popped. I think any of these patterns would look wonderful in the fabrics above.
