This week Trina picked Lorinda's photo of Skywalker. Since I've used green the past two weeks I wanted to avoid that obvious color. I also wanted to avoid brown (sorry, Skywalker!) since I have an aversion to it in quilts. That left me with limited options and I decided to go for this greyscale palette. You could easily add a color (like green), because I think pretty much anything works with a black and white palette.
I created my palette with Palette Builder 2.1 by Play Crafts.
I love that my fabric picks feature two Alison Glass fabrics (love her work!) and two from Karen's Blueberry Park line (every time I see these I wonder why I don't own more of them!). The Kite Tails fabric reminded me of a country fence. I chose Bergen for the natural shapes and the Grow and Dalmatian prints for their representations of nature. I especially like the butterflies in Grow (again, why don't I own this!?). :-) I think a solid white could be used instead of Ink to give the eye more of a place to rest.
