Before shutting off the lights in the sewing room last night, I wanted to choose the fabrics for my next quilt. (This was after my armadillo incident but that’s a story for another time.) Sometimes I can stand in front of my cutting table, study the fabrics for a few minutes and come up with the perfect fabrics in no time at all. Other times . . you know what happens! Nothing works and what does work, there’s not enough of something. Going to a quilt shop would be so easy. Just pull the fabrics I need, cut off what I need and . . go home and sew. I haven’t pulled the background fabric yet but there will be an ecru added to whatever fabrics I choose.
This appeared to be the perfect grouping.
But, there’s not enough of the green. That really is the perfect green for this project. I have three other pieces that are almost perfect but there’s not enough of either of those either.
Another green was substituted.
Not my first choice but this green will work but . . see anything wrong with this picture? All the fabrics except the light blue are Andover Dimples fabrics. I don’t want to have four dimples and one non-dimple fabric. If I had a light blue dimples, I’d just put it in there but I don’t have a light blue.
So, I substituted another dark blue for the dark blue dimples.
I think this is it . . unless you tell me you like the darker purple better. Tell me quick though . . once I get my morning chores done, I’m going to start cutting.
I do need a bolt of every shade of dimples.
