The day has come! Hello Jane has shipped and is finally available at quilt shops and online!
I’ve been nerves waiting for this to ship…waiting for other people to get it and see it in real life…so many nerves!
You know I love mixing in bunches of solids each time I make a quilt, even when it’s my own collection. Solids make everything else POP! So I’m adding a list below of some solids that look great with Hello Jane. Most of them aren’t a perfect match, but really you don’t want a perfect match. It adds depth and interest to have a few different hues like I did in this quilt! If it was all one tone of purple and blue it would be boring!
There are three textured solids that come with the collection and are perfect matches…if you want a perfect violet purple to match the collection this is as close as it gets!
Here are some other recommendations from Moda Bella Solids and Kona Solids since those are the only color cards I own ;) :
Light Purple: Kona 24 Petunia, Bella 9900 66 Lilac (this is more a lavender but beautiful with it)
Dark Purple: Kona 1383 Violet
Red: Kona 1194 Lipstick, or Bella 9900 47 Scarlet
Orange: Kona 149 Papaya
Yellow: Bella 9900 250 Daffodil
Green: Bella 9900 228 Grass
Navy: Kona 1218 Marine (not an exact match but still pretty)
Teal: Bella 9900 107 Turquoise, or Kona 1183 Jade Green
Aqua: Bella 9900 169 Ruby Ice, 9900 34 Aqua, or Kona 1173 Ice Frappe (I bought this at Joann’s in a pinch and it was a perfect match!)
Here are a few of my favorite things I’ve made with Hello Jane and my past project posts!
In case you are new-ish to this blog here is a post I wrote in 2015 about Choosing and Using Solids, including a big long list of my favorite solid colors that I use frequently.
Checkout your favorite shops and they might just have Hello Jane in stock!
