What is up? There is so much new fabric out there that I love. You too? Makes it very, very hard to sleep at night.
Sometimes I lay awake and try to match the fabric to the perfect project. It must be the perfect project for the fabric. I would hate the let the fabric down by cutting and sewing it into a lesser project. Such a shame.
This is about the time I become paralyzed with project-fabric cohesion anxiety (PFCA?) and simply can’t bring myself to cut the stuff. Unless I know I have back-ups. Is there a pill for this? Do you have it too? Honestly.
A recent fabric arrival is Tula Pink’s Parisville.
Sigh and swoon.
The Cameo print is out of this world!
You can see the design process for the Cameo print — fascinating!
I will never be able to draw. Only fabric goddesses and gods can bring us such magical fabric designs. Yeah, no, I won’t be sending anything off to Spoonflower anytime soon.
In my fabric and project speed-dating dreams, I’ve been thinking that Parisville may have to become Rebecca Johnson’s “Curlicue Crush.” That would get all the prints and colorways together. But I also love Tula Pink’s Wind Swept quilt. Maybe that could be a second quilt. Cuz I would need some yardage for that one. Not just these measly fat quarters. 🙂
Also in the works is Lynette Anderson’s Scandinavian Christmas.
I am auditioning some Free Spirit solids for that.
Decisions, decisions. Did you know that Kathy at Pink Chalk has ALL the Free Spirit Designer Solids? This is handy when you’ve got the swatch book in front of you and you want THAT color and THAT color and THAT color. The espresso brown is what made me go with the Free Spirit solids over others. It was interesting to compare Kona’s color swatches with Free Spirit’s. My conclusion, of course, was that a quilter could use every solid there is. That could definitely keep a girl up at night thinking about that!
What fabrics are calling your name at the moment??
