For all you “crumbers” I just added a new page (find it on the left hand column) that has all the “crumb along with me” quilt information in one spot for quick reference.
Now onto today’s post…
I broke down and did it. I swapped fabric with Shelly. Can you guess which pile I gave and which pile I recieved?
I sent the dark prints and got the bright prints. I had lamented on my facebook page that I wanted to make a Lego quilt like this one Tonya’s making…but my stash and scraps just wouldn’t allow it. My scraps are mostly Civil War reproductions….I wanted a quilt that was fun and lively. That wouldn’t work with my scraps.
Shortly after I wrote that on facebook, there was a note in my in box, asking if I’d want to swap fabric. It was a weak moment for me and I said sure. Normally I NEVER do anything like this. I am always afraid that I would be deficient at it…(you know the worry… if I sent enough fabric…the wonder if I sent the right fabric) Typically I don’t do these things because the worry is just is too much for me.
Yesterday I got this wonderful bright fabric package and before I “petted” one piece of the great fun brights that Shelly sent, I immediately filled the box with my darks and sealed the box. I didn’t want to worry or fret about what to include so I filled the box before I had time to fret.
Then I saw this awesome quilt from Colorado Lady… How awesome is that?!?! Now I am going to have to make some type of choice on which quilt I am going to tackle. Not having brights to play with my darks is no longer an excuse.
