I bet you thought I was taking a trip, well, I was.... to my stash. I realized years ago, that buying the fabric I really liked was like starting my own fabric store where everything in it was my favorite. So when I look at my stash, I think of it as my own store :). I keep most of my scrappy pieces (and some bigger pieces too) in these plastic containers. They're folded so I can see each piece.
I am starting a new project, and decided I wanted to do low volume neutrals. So I pulled fabrics that I wanted to use and cut 2 1/2" strips of each.
The strips on the left will be the focal points with the lights being used in the main body of the quilt.
Of course, I always make sure I have a kitty that fits into the color scheme.
Here are some of the blocks up on my design wall... I think I'm going to like it. Recognize the pattern?? This will be the 3rd time I've made this pattern - guess I kind of like it :).
And today I say good-bye to my sweet calendar girl. How I've enjoyed having her in my kitchen each day, but it's May 1st and I know Tammy and Avis are excited it's their turn now.
Have a great day, I'm off to do some hand quilting on our Opportunity Quilt :).
