The first several times I went thru Joanna Figueroa's new book, "With Fabric & Thread" I was CONVINCED I was going to make this quilt ...
... in solid pink and white. Crisp, graphic & classic. And beautiful.
A 2-solid-color quilt has been on my to do list for years now. And I really thought it was gonna happen.
But then I realized I didn't have enough solid pink in my stash (what?!). But I do have this very lovely pink tonal that refused to play nicely with my Farmer's Wife blocks - haven't totally forgiven it yet ...
so I'm gonna use it for this quilt.
And THEN I got another idea. See, the book has another pattern that is very similar, but with smaller blocks, a reverse color scheme and little 9-patches. (Love!)
So I got to thinking ... why not use the pink tonal for the background and different white prints for the blocks?
(Some days it really is a heavy burden ... you know ... being so clever and all ... tee hee!)
Please don't blame me if you get a cavity looking at my fabric selection ... it's VERY SWEET!
But I seriously love these white florals and dots all together.
I'd understand if you thought I was making a baby quilt ... but no, this quilt - I've decided - is going to be for me.
Unless one of my daughters ends up claiming it. I could live with that.
As long as she lets me share it with her on family movie night.
