I have a fabric pull that I’m excited to share with you and several “a-ha!” moments. First take a look at these lovely pretties:
I originally pulled these fat quarters from the shelves of my store for the Skillbuilder BOM I’m doing. I love the analagous color scheme of red, orange and yellow. It’s so warm and inviting. There are a few Kona Solids in there, some Kaffe Fassett and Amy Butler pieces, a few older Lily Ashbury geometrics, some Laurel Burch Basics that blend surprisingly well, and of course a few Pearl Bracelets.
My mini “a-ha” moment came when I thought – why not all of them?
I could make each set of blocks with a different shade of black or grey and maybe even grab some shades I don’t have yet.
This led to another “a-ha” moment. I really liked the last completely solid quilt I made, so why not do another?
So I set aside my bundle of colorful print fabrics above and instead went with all solids in red, orange and yellow with a hint of turquoise.
This picture isn’t really great but the colors really do speak to me for this specific project.
And my final “a-ha” moment of the week: I gave myself permission to take the print fabric stack above out of my store’s inventory and keep them for myself. After all, they were my original inspiration, so that means means they belong in my stash, patiently waiting for the perfect project to use them in. :-)
