Here is a shot of me auditioning binding fabrics- with the ever-present feline "helper."
The pink was my sort-of favourite in that it stood out from the turquoise houndstooth borders and the grey print on the back (from Rashida Coleman Hale). Ultimately, though, I went with something totally different, a print that hadn't occurred to me because I had pulled it for another project, so it wasn't with my stash. You'll have to wait for the post on the finished quilt to see what I ended up going with!
Also this week I got my Sew Sister Fat Quarter Club mail delivery. Hooray! The thrill of fabric in the mail is unbeatable (which probably explains my ever-growing stash).
Here was the inspiration picture:
And here are the fat quarters:
|From top to bottom: Kona Amber, Kona Evergreen, Kona Wine, Kona Burgundy|
The Evergreen is so dark it is almost black (as you can see in the bottom picture). The Amber looks yellow or orange depending on the lighting- which makes perfect sense for something called Amber!
I added them to my stash, and have vowed to dip into using these solids in 2013.
Hope your Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are loads of fun- we'll be busy all week long with family and friends. Look for my posts on two completed quilts!
