I've decided to join along with the Penny Sampler over at Stitched in Color this year. I hemmed and hawed a bit, since I'm not sure I should be adding to my commitments, but the Penny Sampler won out. I've loved this quilt for a long time and I didn't want to miss my chance at making it. I've joined in the 12 month plan, so I could go slow and (hopefully) steady.
This weekend I've been playing with my color story. I decided to play with a vintage scrapy look. I made this pinterest board to get a feel for what I liked and didn't like.
Some of my favorites surprised me.
The scrap factor on this quilt is crazy! But I really loved it. I like the pops of red, and all of the saturated colors.
The red on this one delighted me even more!
The dark colors mixed with brights drew me to this one.
So I went though my fabric and pulled out anything that read vintage to me on first glance.

I need to figure out solids to pair with what's I've pulled. I'm leaning towards some very light pastels, and some more 'faded' saturated colors in blue and green. I'd like to hear what anyone thinks! I'd love some input.
