Dead Simple QAL

Have you noticed quilters and designers pulling color palettes from Design Seeds? It's a website that presents colorways from photographs like this. 
I love the idea with starting simply with colors and building a quilt from there.
But, I haven't actually used Design Seeds to do that, yet.
Emphasis on the Yet. That may be changing.

Enter the ..
Dead Simple Quiltalong
Lynne at Lily's Quilts is putting together a unique quilt along: the Dead Simple Quilt Along.

As per her description- Each person picks one palette and then rummages around in their stash for a selection of fabrics matching that palette. 
We then all make a Dead Simple Quilt where the palette, not the piecing, is the star of the show.

What a great concept, right?
Can't wait to see how she runs with this idea!


  1. It sounds like fun, doesn't it? I can't wait until I have a little time to play around on there!
