Some have written that they liked what we did with the last stash project . . where the fabrics were pulled . . just lights and darks, without knowing what we were making. For those having a problem using the stash, you sometimes want to match too much, or keep fabric lines/collections together.
How do you all want to do it? Majority rules!
1. I can show you the project first and you can choose your fabrics based on what the project looks like. You may even decide after seeing it that you don’t like it. If so . . please don’t tell me. I’ll be crushed and may never design another quilt again! 🙁 Doubtful but you just never know! (OK . . that’s a joke! I’m used to coming up with ideas I think are fantastic and everyone else thinks they’re dorky!)
Oh . . speaking of ideas . . remember the fence I showed you:
I get to interview the guy who built it . . later. Probably sometime after May 1. Paducah is next week, you know?
Back to quilting:
2. I can give you the fabric suggestions and cutting instructions and you can cut it all up and then we’ll start making the blocks. Kinda like a mystery but not really.
Just for the record, this picture is from the blocks I’m making. For the instructions, I have listed “background fabric” and “bright colored stash fabric” and “border fabric”. That’s it . . I’m using lots of different ecru on ecru fabrics for my “background”; lots of brights for my “bright colored stash fabric” and green for my “border fabric”.
Of course, you can use anything you want for your “background fabric” and where I’ve used “bright colored stash fabric”, you can use Christmas fabrics, patriotic fabrics, homespun . . whatever suits you.
Your choices are “1” or “2”. Tell me what you want and that’s what we’ll do.
