Had itchy fingers after taking things slowly
for a few days so off on to another project!! Do I really need another project
I asked myself - I thought perhaps I did!
Before doing that I decided to steadily tidy through
my wire baskets which hold most of my fabric stash.
|First up was green|
|then yellow and orange|
|pinks and red|
|blue and purple|
I had an excess of blues and some have spilled over into another
basket. I have no idea why I collected so many blues -I don't use it
a heck of a lot. The remaining 18 baskets will be
attacked a few here and there.
I'm sure you all know about my passion for the
Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics, sorting these into
colour groups can sometimes be a bit dodgy. It's easy to get an
overall impression of the focus colour but with so many other
colours in the mix it can sometimes be a hit and miss affair.
However, the abundance of colour is the reason I love them!
As a break from this I decided to delve into the containers of strips,
long and short, thick and thin, some not uniform in width. Strips
were picked randomly but looking at these quarter blocks
I can see I've begun with two lighter blocks and veered off to
my usual richer fabrics!
It doesn't matter because this is intended to be 72" x 72" and they'll all hopefully
play nicely !! These blocks are 12".
Don't know why the two bottom photos are not keeping in line.
Name for this quilt will be "Mardi Gras".
I'm thinking now of blogger friends who may be caught in
Hurricane Irma, in fact anyone who is experiencing this horrific
catastrophe. We have been following on the TV news reports,
