I’m taking a sewing class this month, on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:30. I had visions of working on an apron or something when I first signed up, but when the instructor started rattling off project ideas, and mentioned “quilt,” I jumped on it.
“A QUILT! YES! A QUILT WOULD BE PERFECT!!” I practically screamed it at the poor lady, and for the next hour or so, I trawled the shop for fabrics. I’m quite picky when it comes to textiles, so while I absolutely love my base fabric, I’m not quite as thrilled with some of the others I settled on. However, I will continue to shop this week at a few other fabric stores until I find the world’s most perfect mixture of gold, grey, blue, and cream. Sounds strange, right? Well, here’s my base fabric:
Gold Morning Glory from Amy Butler.
The pattern is fairly large, so that each flower is about 5 inches in diameter.
So since I’m not much of a pattern person, I pretty much want to use solids for the rest of the fabrics. But the quilt lady said I need some pattern for “pop” so I chose a few others. But now I don’t like them.
Sigh. This is SO difficult. And I haven’t even started sewing!
