You know that saying "misery likes company"? Well, apparently crazy like company too. I don't feel any less crazy about my fabric issues, but I sure do feel like I'm in very good company. Thanks y'all who chimed in. You guys are funny!
So, from that barfing scrap bin, here are the prints my helper & I picked from my scraps for this quilt. And I chose this light taupe on white print for the large border from my main stash.
I haven't committed to a fabric for the colored inner border yet. (Scroll down a bit to see the first picture of yesterday's post). I usually wait until the main part of a quilt top is pieced before picking one - especially when I'm using scraps. I just never know which color I'm going to want to accentuate ... although pink is usually a pretty good bet! ;).
There aren't enough years left in me to list & describe all the things I've made from these fabrics. I couldn't possibly give you each piece's history. There's everything from brand new Robyn Pandolph charm squares to 5 year old 3 Sisters by Moda prints to more Susan Branch to 20+ year old Laura Ashley scraps. But you're looking at a fairly good representation of what sorts of colors & prints make me happy.
Ooooh, this is gonna be a pretty quilt (if I do say so myself)!
