50 Shades of Brown Quiltalong

If you would like to sewalong here's a sampling of the various shades of browns I used. The quilt is going to measure approx 14"x18" so it's likely you really won't need 50!! LOL 
If you watched the video from last Friday you know I mentioned a teeny bit of pink (4- 1 1/2" squares) and a teeny bit of blue (2- 1 1/2" squares) 
You'll be surprised at how many different shades of brown there is. Some are tinted with yellow, some are a bit more red. If you lay them out and one keeps looking out of place, then just pull it out. Find a nice variety and be ready to start a super easy quiltalong when I return on Monday September 21st. 

As for the name: 
This is my world late summer- lots of brown!










Most recently our usual amazing blue skies are brown!


It got so thick not even the sun was peaking through. 

So many shades of brown! 

No matter what's going on, have a terrific week.

  2. I'm going to have fun pulling out some brown fabrics this week--looking forward to next Monday. I think we are having some effects of the smoke even here in Minnesota. The rising sun this morning was strangely hazy. It's all so tragic and sad.

  4. Brown isn't a color that I buy very often, but with a touch of blue and pink it should be really pretty. Looking forward to seeing this project.

  6. I will be stash diving to see if I can come up with a good variety of browns. At a glance, I have too many in the same shade. This will be an adventure. Who knows what lurks in the deepest recesses of the "brown" shelf, drawer, and basket?? :)

  9. I was going to pass this time, but then, just for grins, I counted the browns in my stash and in my brown scraps bag. Lo and behold, I have well over 50 shades of brown! So I'm going to sew along!

  11. This sounds right up my alley, Lori. I have stacks of brown! (Do you mind a plug? For those who can’t find enough browns in their stash, Temecula Quilt Co. has a new line called Bygone Browns, perfect for this project. Also of the “cooler” tone, like the ones you show.)
