Pulled

I've pulled some fabrics for the To-Be-Named paper piecing project. I'm very happy that I'll have company from a few of you on this romp.


The colors were inspired by this piece of Kaffe Fasset fabric my grandma gave me. The orange and blue together have so much kick!


That guy really loves color, and I really love leaning on him for color schemes. I'm planning to pair all these with some Kona Sand that I have. It's been in my stash awaiting another use for far too long, so I re-appropriated it.

I reserve the right to totally change directions when I get the "Washi Tape" fabric I just ordered. I rarely feel compelled to buy fabric I've only seen online. But this one is so unique. Beautiful work Rashida! I don't often see transparency used in a fabric design and I really like it in this one.

I also pulled a winner for the book A Field Guide to Fabric Design. Congratulations Melissa at A Happy Stitch! Hope you find lots of inspiration in this book.

I had a fun day in the sewing room today. I'll fix up my pictures and share them this week!
