Don’t anyone go out and buy fabrics yet. Those measurements I shared over the weekend were “about” what it will be. I have to finish the top I’m working on now before I can cut out the QFAH and test it. I’m hoping to get started today and have some firm numbers and maybe a picture by Tuesday or Wednesday.
Some days I really wonder about myself. I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t like pretty fabric. I seem to like the stuff that no one else wants. Maybe that explains that boyfriend I had through high school and college but . . let’s not go there! Good thing I don’t have any great aspirations to be a fabric designer, huh?
I’ve had this fabric for a while.
It’s really uglier in real life than in this picture. But, I really, really like it but I can’t come up with anything to go with it. I drag it out and try to put it in every quilt I make. I have a bit over 3-1/2 yards, which makes it perfect for the dark background for the next QFAH. I must’ve ordered it online because had I bought this one in person, I’d probably have 7 yards of it. Maybe I like it so much that I just can’t use it.
That’s not the only ugly fabric I have. Look what I came up with trying to find fabrics for the QFAH.
Maybe I just need to accept that not every quilt I make has to be green!
This next QFAH is going to be another quilt to go to the orphanage in Houma, LA so I doubt the quilt police will be doing any heavy duty inspection of my color choices but this might work for my light and dark backgrounds.
I still have time to change my mind! 🙂
