I think it was the most beautiful sunset
I have ever seen!
Even Walter was unusually calm and appreciative!
in between trips to the beach
and daydreams of Paris...
I have been sewing up a storm!
It seems that I have developed
quite a crush
on all things Kathy Doughty!
Here's a very fun finish...
there are 24 different fabrics in each "bead".
This time I did it random and my usual hodgepodge way...
next time I might play even more within the colors.
From this book...
I saw this pattern...
and am having sew much fun!!!
I channeled Karen Stone's philosophy
and developed a palette
starting with this Alexander Henry fabric...
which played with this goofy purchase so well!
(Sometimes even I don't know why I buy the fabrics I do!)
You make all these giant circles...
(I kept seeing what Joe Cunningham talked about -
how the color of the fabric is not really known
until it is actually in play with it's neighbor!)
I am still auditioning center fabrics.
Some old fabric,
It is all making me positively giddy
to see what happens next!
The design is also quite refreshingly different!
Trim them down to 13 1/2 inch squares.
LOVE the whole process!
It was wonderfully easy to pick the fabrics from my stash.
I will forever be tweaking the collection.
I suppose it will be part of my creative process.
I did come to the conclusion
that I would like to
do some destashing.
The post office lady said that this box
can be sent anywhere in the US
So here's my destash/online garage sale idea...
I will ship you 14 fat quarters
for 30.00 (includes shipping).
Send me an email
1. stating your overall choice (I pick fabrics) -
A. cool colors (blue,green, purple)
B. warm colors (red, yellow, orange)
C. reads as black (mostly black background)
D. reads white (mostly white background)
2. your address
I will send you my address and will ship your fat quarters once your check has cleared.
Please help me with my addiction -
I need room for future purchases!
(I know you know of what I speak!)
