A picture of my current sewing project. I'll get back to this later.
My visit with my friend went really well yesterday, with the exception of getting to the quilt shop too late. We could only stand at the windows and press our noses against the glass. Darn those shop people for having personal lives. Since I was thinking about spending, I saved a buncho money.
I explained ages ago about "my" colors. This was a very limited palette that I loved (and still do) and I ONLY bought fabric in those colors. (A quick recap: only colors of the cool side of the spectrum and black. Period.) Then I started playing with orange and lime green for Halloween and all was lost. Eventually I started making quilts that used all sorts of colors so long as they were bright. Still no white though.
But playing with Bonnie in January on the crumb quilts I had fun using those shirting fabrics. Now I'm thinking, maybe I need to add some white to my current project. And some black and white. Oh nooooo. I hold the line tho. There will be no neutrals, no beiges, taupes or any color of that ilk.
So if the store had been open, I would have bought some bright and white fabrics. Maybe. Mighta. Now we'll never now.
Meanwhile, the pic up top shows you some of the bits I've been cutting. I want to make another crumb quilt, but I got no crumbs. So it's a fake crummy. I want this quilt to have lots of triangles in it (love those kaleidescopes etc that Bonnie pieced) and some nine-patches and maybe two-patches and definitely some piano keys. So I've been cutting triangles, squares and rectangles out of the strips to save time when I start piecing. Not going for accuracy, just speed.
My piles of fakes are higher than in the pic (but still the same colors as shown - no white). I even cut some today until resurgent allergies made me realize it's not time yet for that.
