When it came time to choose my fabrics. l started with these 2 packets of Civil war tribute fabrics l bought in Houston last year. Just love them. Then when looking back at the quilt photos, decided that there was not enough color variety, so l went digging in my sewing room last night.
l decided that l needed to choose what colors l wanted to use, as piles of fabric grew around me. Then inspiration struck in the guise of a basket of purple fabrics l had been collecting for a special quilt. So based on the above colors and with the help of my purple basket, l decided on purple, red, brown and pinks. Not your pretty purples, reds, browns and pinks, but the muddier dirty ones. As you can see below, the piles grew beyond expectation, and now instead of a small pile of fabrics, l have a bag full. They say variety is the spice of life!!!!! Probably not all fabrics will make it into the quilt, but l can see several scrappy quilts coming out of the bag in the future.
Thanks for visiting.
P.S. Kathie, you will be pleased to know the photos enlarge again. Don't know what l did!!!!
