...of a new project. finally. :)
The Start - the pulling and selecting and matching and pairing of fabrics has always been one of my very favorite parts of quilting.
AND then the browsing of blogs and pinterest and flickr while choosing JUST the RIGHT pattern to show off those fabrics, while hopefully also still giving me a bit of a challenge in order to keep my interest while piecing and placing fabrics...
Well... I just miss it. And that's how I knew it was time for a new project.
I started by wading into my long-ago abandoned "office & craft room" (it has since become merely a dumping ground for tupperwear storage bins full of outgrown little boys clothes and the occasional box of photography packing supplies) -- and then digging my way into the closet to pull out all of the fabric bins that I'd crammed in there almost 3 years ago.
This little stack of pretty aquas and cobalts and greys is what first emerged.
And then I added in some greens...
....But now I'm thinking less green - and more summer ocean hues - might be the perfect way to go.
And I broke out my KONA Cotton swatch book (my favorite solids!) to start pairing colors to go with this assortment of prints...
...I think Candy Green (it seems like the perfect aqua!) is a must!
I can't wait to see where this heads - & I'll be sure to share more of this project here.
