The first palette was a no brainer for me. I always enjoy working with a rainbow palette. There is something really fun about working with all of the colors on the color wheel--it gives a lot of opportunity for contrast which allows the pattern design to really speak. A batik rainbow palette is especially fun because of the availability of clear, saturated colors, which are my favorite.
The second palette started with an awesome grey/taupe batik and kind of took off from there. I added the blacks and dark browns for contrast, and then the blues for interest. The result was somewhat subtle and sophisticated.
Janine used both of these palettes to make her latest patterns: Pandora's Box and the Plaza. Both patterns/kits are available exclusively from Keepsake Quilting!
Our friend Ann Davidson of Providence quilting did the longarming on both of these quilts. Thank you, Ann!
