When I was at one of the local quilt shops I added to my neutral collection…
I don’t know what it is but I have been obsessed with neutral fabric lately. I’ve been collecting and collecting. What I’m collecting for, I’m not sure. That doesn’t seem to be deterring me though. I love scrappy quilts and I especially love scrappy quilt with scrappy backgrounds. I didn’t have many fun scrappy neutrals so I started collecting.
You might just be surprised at how few there are. At each shop I go to I might find 8-10 but that’s about it.
After hitting up a few quilt shops I have a good amount now but I doubt that will stop the collecting. I just love them…they are so cute!
Besides, when you go into a quilt shop don’t you feel like you should buy something…I sometimes do. So..I buy a few quarter cuts of neutrals.
Kelli thinks I am crazy but she does the same thing…she’s slowly starting a batik collection. So how about you? Is there something you’re collecting when you visit a quilt shop??
