I can't believe I made it through this last semester - but I have survived and only took a little hit to my GPA and ego. BUT - I am ready to sew again, especially because I have purchased all this great fabric over the last 2 months.
Here is a peek at the fabric again and I took my hand at chevron. Hope you like it.
So, even though the scheduled quilt is only a throw size quilt of the "Whoo Whoo Loves you" quilt --- I keep looking at fabric and I purchased more just the other day. I was desperate waiting for it to get here and I wasn't disappointed. I felt that my initial purchase only a little flat in the turquoises end, and as I mentioned before, it was short on the corals. These are great addition to the set and I hope she loves them as much as I do.
I am loving being able to purchase all these beautiful fabrics lately. A great fellow blogger and IRL friend has ordered a throw-size owl quilt. She wants turquoise and corals and for the quilt to be rotated 90 degrees so she can throw it over the couch. Great idea - if you ask me. She left me to pick out all the fabrics which was fun but a little frightening, as well. I kept thinking, "What if she doesn't like my choices?" So far she has been very happy with the fabrics.
Here are the most colorful fabrics close up. I think that I have too many of the turquoises in the same shade - and I prefer the corals from the frog fabric. I think I am going to return the two pinks and one of the turquoise ones. I have purchased more fabrics in exchange and they should be coming today!! WOOT! - Or should I say, "WHOOT!"
However, the fabric can't all be so pretty and fun - I needed to have a variety of greens for the leaves and browns for the limbs. :) You can see all the fabrics together in the following picture. And I am very pleased with how they came out; especially because I purchased them all sight-unseen from an online store.
And lastly, I am thinking of getting these coral fabrics instead.
