Yesterday I was feeling inspired by some fabric scraps. Today I did some shopping. From my own stash.
This is the answer to the question that constantly runs through Mark's mind, although he is wise enough not to ask out loud: Why are you buying more fabric when you already have so much??
So when you are inspired, the stores are not open, and you can't wait days for fabric to be delivered to your mailbox, you can just shop at home. (Along those lines, he has threatened to do a guest post on my stash, as he feels like I'm not in the "full dislosure" mode when I write about it. I'll consider it... when I decide whether it will make me proud...or embarrassed.)
I have been collecting solids. Thank you, Robert Kaufman Kona cotton, Moda Bella solids, Amy Butler and Anna Maria Horner.
While the inspiration fabric is a charcoal background with some raisin squares, I'm going to switch it around. Wonky squares, perle cotton big stitch quilting.
In this quilt, instead of just solids, what do you think of a square of Echino here and there just for interest? (even though they didn't photograph as quite the same color, the turquoise solid and the Echino are nearly identical).
