Pictured below are some of my favorite fabrics. They are so beloved that in most cases, I have kept them for years, untouched, in my fabric stash. My favorite color (and the lion's share of my fabric collection) is bright golden yellow, and I've amassed a decent chunk of that weird chartreusey-citron color that was everywhere last year.
I finally decided to stop being a crazy person and just USE these, all together, in one quilt. So! Thus far, I've pulled these lovelies for use in a throw-sized flying geese quilt. For the background of the geese, I wanted to use a saturated blue, like the flowers in the central Heather Bailey print. Not surprisingly, it's almost impossible to match! After searching several different shops, I went to one outside of Nashville with a huge selection of Kaffe Fassett shot cottons and behold:
The perfect blue! (For reference, this one is called Spruce. I think.) I often turn to shot cottons when trying to match weird colors. I think their different warp and weft colors give them a chamelion-like versatility.
So, here it is: the start of a new quilt! It's been far too long.
