The first range I chose is 'Hideaway' by Lauren + Jessi Jung, it has a great range of colours - yellows, blues, reds and greens and each individual fabric has a cute pattern.
I have ordered a layer cake which will contain a 10" x 10" piece of each of these fabrics and then some more to add up to 42 squares in total. This will be enough for my first quilt which will be a lap quilt which I will be using to snuggle up with on the couch to watch tv!
The second layer cake I've ordered is 'Sunkissed, Sweetwater' by Moda Fabrics. This is a gorgeous range which contains some pastels and some funky brights -
My lap quilt will be mainly pastels and once I progress to a quilt for my bed, I may use some of the more vibrant colours.
I am planning a fairly simple quilt, I want to be able to see all the different fabrics and their lovely individual patterns. I may cut the 10" squares into quarters and sew blocks of squares together etc... or I may 'wonky' cut the squares and then frame them with a complimentary solid to look a little like this one -
