The last time I saw Connie she brought a bag of goodies. I set it aside and really didn’t dig into it. I had been so busy doing the outside work around the house that the inside work got set aside…and the bag from Connie sadly got set aside.
Well then I had the revelation last week that I might someday do a Wild and Goosey quilt out of Kaffe Fassett fabrics and I remember Connie saying she had sent Kaffe leftovers in the bag so I pulled the bag out and dug in! Oh my…WONDERFUL. Seriously, I think I can make a HUGE dent in making the quilt of Kaffe fabrics. I’m so thrilled….but first I’m going to show you the other goodies in the bag.
LOTS of REDS!! Connie knows I’m a red girl. If a quilt is in two colors, my immediate go to is RED. If a quilt needs an accent color, my immediate response is to pick RED. If it’s at all appropriate, I pick reds for the binding. Red just always works so these are very appreciated….Scraps are always my favorite.
There were a couple of other pieces that are farmhouse-y with shiplap and cows…Hmmm. I wonder how I could work these into something.
Now for the Kaffe fabrics…there are some that still in a chunk….
…and some that are all bagged up in a scrap bundle. AH…PERFECT!! These scraps will be perfect for what the Wild and Goosey quilt.
I’m running around here doing the happy dance. It’s good to feel enthused about a project. I know it will be awhile before I actually sew on it but that’s way okay. Come January, there will be no gardening or time to walk so I’ll have plenty of time to sew on it then.
Thanks a million Connie. You know exactly what I like!!
