[workinprogress]


There's not a lot to say today except that I've started the week with fabric play and by stitching up a storm.  I have limited myself to working with just a handful of prints, which I find challenging and was tempted to add more colors and prints as the quilt top progressed. 


This quilt will be all about the fabric; the mix of colors and prints.  I have used a selection of blue, and green prints, mixed with a yellow floral (Japanese) print, and a large black dot.  The colors are inspired by the Indian Summer weather that we've enjoyed this week.


FABRICS USED INCLUDE:
Liberty of London Tana Lawn (2 blue floral fabrics)
Flea Market Fancy - Dotted Leaf in Green and Blue by Denyse Schmidt
Flea Market Fancy - Blue Dot by Denyse Schmidt
Soleil 2012 by Olympus Fabric (Yellow Floral print)
Sevenberry Black Dot on White background (made in Japan)
Just Dandy by Josephine Kimbering for Robert Kaufman (Green Daisies)

More soon,
Rita

  8. Those are all the wall colors in my house! (excepting an unfortunate dark avocado bedroom, which is slated to be brightened up this summer) Not as colorful as your usual picks for fabric, but still very bright and cheerful, I think. :-)
