Spools on my design floor
Up-close pics to see the fabric a bit better.
The City Quilter back in February, and loved the ombre, but hated the little swirly lines. So, I didn't buy. Then, a couple of weeks ago when we were in MA, we went to The Black Cat Quilt Shop, and lo and behold, there was the fabric and I fell in love. And the best part was that swirly effect. Go figure. Different day, different moment. Who knows? All I can say now is that I'm so in love with this fabric. Not inexpensive, but look at all the colors I can get out of those 1/2 yards. I'm combining it with Kona white, just because I really like white these days to set off color.
These are just little 4" squares. It'll take a whole bunch to make a quilt. How big with the quilt be? I have no idea; I'll work until I get tired of it all. If I move quickly (hah!), I might finish it before the shop runs out of fabric. Or not. I can see a white border and an ombre border. Or not. I like to make it up as I go along.
