A Watery Palette and NTT

Welcome to the first Needle and Thread Thursday of the new year, friends!  I'm working on a fun new pattern and these watery shades of blue and gray will be perfect for it.

I'm resuming my mission to quilt from stash as much stash as I can this year, and because I love these colors, my stash always seems to be heavy with them.  I can't wait to share more progress with you!

At last week's party, there were so many amazing projects linked up.  Nancy at Grace and Peace Quilting shared this awesome quilt-

I love this cute quilt by Sew Preeti Quilts-

This quilt by Sandra at mmm quilts is fantastic!

And finally, Shannon at The Fleming's Nine is already looking ahead to Valentine's day with this sweet quilt!

Alright, y'all!  Let's kick off 2021 with a bang!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. Gorgeous color palette!


  2. Beautiful color palette, I love the half down, lighter greys and turquoise blues!

  3. You may call the palette watery - I call it refreshing and bubbly!!! I am sure whatever you make from it will be beautiful. But just in case, you still cannot get a handle on the scraps, I am happy to take them off your hands. I don't want you to have a case of the blues :-D
    Thank you for featuring my quilt :-)

  4. Love the watery blues you're working with! Thanks for featuring my Meadowland! My Mom was thrilled to receive it!

  5. Love the combination of so many blues! I'm sure whatever the design is, it'll be gorgeous!

  6. Looking forward to seeing your newest design in that wonderful fabric pull. So pretty. I'm also trying to use stash (again) this year. Somehow knowing that I plan to work from my stash in the new year, I always succumb to buying at the end of the year as if that justifies things. Of course the year end sales are to blame. lol.

  7. Those fabrics are wonderful. I bet they will look great in some quilt. It's always good to use stash. I'm hoping to use stash first but I know I'll have to break down and buy for backings.

  8. Can't wait to see what you do with those beautiful colors - reminds me of the cruise we went on when the world was normal! A storm blew up and the waves hit our windows! 16 footers. I de-stashed last year resolution to buy NO fabric and seriously do not see much of a dent after 42 large baby quilts. (Math? about 85 yards?) Thanks for the shares as well.

  9. OMG! I need that herringbone piece on the left. It would be PERFECT for the binding of my niece's wedding quilt!!!

  10. You have great colors in your stash! My print stash just keeps getting smaller and smaller, while the solid stash has grown. Thanks for giving each of us these opportunities, through Linky, to share our finishes.


Thanks so much for your comment and for visiting! I read and appreciate every single comment, and I reply to each one as soon as I can. If you don't hear back from me, you might be a no-reply blogger. :)
