An amazing colorful linen quilt in progress by urbanrootsworkshop, saved in my inspiration folder on IG for years.



Fabrics Store Heavy Linen (7.1 oz) in bleached, mixed natural, and shadow grey (bought piece meal in the Doggy Bag section to save some $$$ since I didn’t need continuous yardage).


Fabric Dye

Rit dye color formulas were my best friend - this is an art, not a science :) and will yield different results for each batch.

  • Green Canopy - dark green used for background

  • Graffiti Green - light green and light blue (this dye lot darkened super quickly and I used Rit Dye Remover to lighten it. It was split between two pieces of fabric and each came out a different color even in the same dye bath, just go with it…)

  • Honey Jam Gold - mustard yellow used for accent squares

Note: Pink Peony was my color choice for the muted blush color. I decided to go with the shadow grey pre-dyed fabric from Fabrics Store as this is one of the hardest colors to achieve at home. It usually needs to be over-dyed with a touch of the opposite color to knock out the brightness.
