Island Batik Ambassadors Mini Challenge Quilt 2 - Picking Color.

I love Post-it notes.  Who doesn't?  I have a problem however when it comes to going to district meetings because they have collections of all these pretty ones!  I grabbed a couple.  I'll admit that my neighbor was wondering what was going on.  I explained I was going to use them to pick colors for a project.

Here's my starting point.

Here's the first combination I tried.  I love this!

What if I add turquoise?  Nah.

Lime?  No.

A second turquoise?  Too many colors.  It starts to get overwhelming.


I like this, but the bright pink was better than the salmon.

Okay, but not singing to me.

As you can see, I kept playing....

Funnily enough, I finally settled on my first color combination.

I dove into my Island Batik stash looking for these colors.  Here's what I found for the dark orange.

The hot pink...



And here are my final choices.

You never know where you're going to find inspiration!

I hope you get to quilt today!


  1. So true. Inspiration is everywhere if you are paying attention.

  2. This is so fun! Thanks for sharing your process!

  3. I’ve never seen such vibrant post it colors. My office stocks just the boring yellow. I love so many of the combos you put up. Looking forward to your project.

  4. That lime, salmon, and two turquoise ones would have been my pick! I'm so predictable! Lol! Can't wait to see where you went from here!

  5. I see a couple of combinations with promise.
    - the one with cheddar, salmon, lime, light and dark turquoise
    - The turquoise, cheddar, orange and blue. It may not sing, but I hear it humming. :)

  6. what a fun way to choose colours!
    Happy Quilting! :-)
