Treasures from the scrap bin | Sharon Keightley Quilts

Hello everyone

I am excited to get started on a sew-along from my book Autumn Bouquet. I have given a lot of thought as to which quilt to start with, one of my all-time favorites is the treasures from the scrap bin pattern. As I will be re-making the quilt, this is the one I have chosen to start with. I am making mine as a Xmas gift, I hope you will join me in making this fun quilt. Please bear with me as this is the first time I have done a Sew Along and I am learning along the way, I am sure it will be a lot of fun.

I very much would like to do this sew along with you, but would like to make it in a similar colorway as you have. I love this quilt! But I’m not sure how to pick fabrics (ie: what type or genre for lack of a better word) to make it come out this way. I know it is scrappy, but I don’t have scraps like this. Is this something you will be addressing to the group? Or could you maybe give me some pointers please? Thank you!
