In this session, F²F³, we have 9 members, and the swap will run from June 2018 to February 2019.
Each member gets three colours, plus a ‘background’ neutral of white or cream. Colour names may be as specific as you like, but you may not choose a Pantone reference or request a particular fabric.
Click on any image to enlarge for more details. Colour references will be updated as they become available. The names and colour selections for each month are:
Grey (light through to charcoal), beige tones and vintage rose pink as a highlight. Background to be cream (rather than white).
Blues and white. Navy to cobalt to light blues plus white. If there are spots of other colors in the blue prints that will be okay
I fancy something in turquoise, grey and black on white.
My colours are shades of blue, any, from light to dark to teal and aqua, with blush/dusky pink. Backgrounds are any blues too. A print that has small amounts of other colours in is fine, but not anything that overwhelms the blues and pinks. And I prefer not to have any modern/improv blocks please. I’d love some baskets, if anyone wants to do them – I’d love an appliqué block or two, but not to worry if you want to stay with pieced. Here’s my Pinterest board.
I’m using this feather/egg fabric, and would like blocks featuring various shades of browns – assorted tans, golden browns, and dark browns. The print features eggs in a light grey blue, which is what I’d like to have for an accent color in the blocks. Background is cream, and I’m wanting a variety cream tonal fabrics.
The cerise of the flower, the blue of the vase and a little orange, any shade of these colours. Background white if necessary
I would love blocks in the colours of my plant pots from my garden:
Green: mint, yellow-green, brighter sage.
Blue: duck egg blue, vintage 50’s blue, pastelly blue-purple
Grey: medium warm grey
Any colour that lies in between these in the colour spectrum is perfectly fine too.
A sprinkling of white is OK too!
My colors are sky blue, a sort of cornflower blue, and gray: from silvery gray to as dark as charcoal, with white as my neutral. I don’t see having a dash of other colors in a print being an issue, but would prefer they be more on the cool side. I am seeing the sky blue, grays and white being the main focus with smaller bits of the darker blue. I made a Pinterest board with some photos, here’s the link. I will continue to try and add to it at least into the next week or so:
Colours: Soft amethyst and slate, with white in the background if necessary. Please, no strong, bright purples, I’m after a vintage, dusty, faded effect. There can be touches of other colours – see featured fabrics.
