Starry Bright Sky Sundays (5): ideas for color combinations!

In early August, I announced the Starry Bright Sky QAL and many people subscribed to the mailing list and they seem to be excited about this event!!

Even if the QAL will start in 2018, I decided to start a series of posts (one every 2 weeks, on Sunday) to reveal bits and pieces of the events, so that I can get your feedback and we can get more excited about it!!

I will announce sponsors, featured techniques, color scheme options, layouts, and much much more! There are several special things that I've never seen in other QALs before so I hope you will find them intriguing, inspiring and a learning experience!!

I am working on different layouts, different colorways, sponsors and giveaways, etc. It is going to be extra fun!

If you are interested in learning more about this QAL and join the fun, leave your email address in the Google Form in the QAL page at this link.

In previous weeks I shared:
  1. the inspiration
  2. the sewing techniques that will be used
  3. the reveal of the 11 blocks layout
  4. the fun FREE side event

And now, for today's post...

Some ideas on color combinations you can use for you own quilt!
Next time I will share more information about fabric amounts, ideas for cool fabric lines you can use, etc. But for today let me share some color combinations

The first is the color combinations I will personally use because my quilt is going to be inspired by "The Starry Night" by Vincent Van Gogh.


 Some more traditional two colors combinations are Blue/White and Red/White.

By mixing up the sashing colors, the two above combinations can create a US/patriotic color combination.

You can also be inspired by a season or a festivity: for example these are Fall and Halloween color combinations.

Finally you can go all out with a Rainbow quilt!!

If you want to play around with colors yourself, you can download the Coloring Page and Fabric Swatches document!

Remember that these are only 11 of the 22+ blocks I will share during the QAL... every month there will be two blocks: one displayed above and one mystery block using the same technique!!

So are you excited? Which color combination are you considering using?

Remember to join the mailing list in the Google Form if you don't want to miss out on future posts!

Until next time,
Happy Stitching!!

Remember: all the details about the series are collected in the QAL web page.


  1. All the color ideas are fun to look at. Thanks.

  2. So many beautiful color combinations!! I love the blue and yellow. I love the inspiration for it. Blue and yellow are two of my absolute favorites. I'm also drawn to the rainbow combination. It's going to be difficult deciding.

  3. The blue and yellow are favorite; I think because it looks like the night sky. I will have to decide what colors or buy a lot more yellow. Decisions, decisions. Thanks for the ideas.


I love to connect with all of you wonderful people!
