Tuesday - Mail Day

Tuesday seems to be THE day for great parcel deliveries and today was no exception.


The Yarn:  Anzula Cloud - Hand Dyed Yarn
The Fabric:  Classic Moda  - Chicken Wire

This delivery inspired a rummage through my fabric stash and a flash of  the rotary cutter.


And so here is the start a new quilt project:


This one is a bit of a personal challenge.  I am turning down the volume on color/pattern; instead focusing on subtle shades highlighted by a a sprinkling of color.  The plan will undoubtedly evolve as I spend more time working on this project.

More soon,
Rita

  8. I don't know if you remember the old Australia Post TV ad about the days of the week, but it said in that that more mail gets delivered on a Tuesday than any other day, and it must be true, because I got quite a few packages today too.

  11. Love the restrained colours! Mustard is high on my list of lovely colours after seeing the Echo fabrics!

  12. How totally lovely are grey shades with mustardy yellow shades?! Yes, a real tone down for you but still as lively and impacting as your colour bombshells. I hope you whip this up quickly as I am eager to see it! That chickenwire fabric is the best. xx Fi
