Well…it’s a little bit of a wash. What can say? I had fabric out…but I had fabric in too. Look at this hall. Only half of it is mine so my numbers won’t be quite as bad as this looks but it will be bad enough.
Kelli and I were so excited about Bonnie Hunter’s new on line mystery quilt along “Easy Street” until we saw the fabrics that were selected. Well let’s just say we aren’t bright fabric gals and everything about her color choices yelled BRIGHT. We thought about not doing it…but that would be close to a quilting sin. So we tried to figure out what to do to make it work. That’s when Poison Green, Double Pinks, and Prussian Blue came to mind. Well we might be able to make that work. So for now, that’s the plan…thus the fabric acquisition.
It was 37 fat quarters for me…I need to pull some more pinks, greens and neutrals but my blues are pretty much set. I am still debating on a gray. Everything I have seen so far blends too much with the blues and greens. There’s time yet to decide. I was even thinking of possible a solid gray. Then I thought what about cheddar. For now I have a start. If you are looking for mystery information, you can find it here.
We bought the fabric through Whittles. I love Whittles…one because I am a cheap skate and two because they have good service. Kelli and I ordered late on Friday night and the package was here Monday. Most of the fabric we purchased was only $5 a yard. Who can beat that?!?!?! If you haven’t checked out Whittles you might want to. Another thing I love is their 10 fat quarters for $12 packages. It’s fun to order them as the only thing customers can pick is a color. We purchased a neutral and green bundles. It’s fun to see what we get. Often it isn’t something we would choose and that keeps variety in our stash.
My fabric out was Kayla’s wedding quilt. If you missed that, here it is again. You can read all about that here.
