I also keep seeing so many cute, cute bags and I thought these fabrics would make a cute one. I love the great big dots. I have always liked dots ever since way back in the '70's and early '80's when we could only get pin dots. And I still have some of those in my stash!
I am in love with this traffic fabric. And it even goes with this blue dot fabric. Can you believe it -- from my limited blue stash came the perfect shade of blue. This seems like such an urban scene. I guess because of the double decker bus.
Blue and brown are also just everywhere. I am not too fond of it. Could be because of all the years I spent with orange and blue dominating my life. But this I like. Probably because there are dots and larger dots with pink and green -- doesn't that white fabric make you think '50's? And the brown checks are reminiscent of gingham, a country and primitive standby.
Of course once I make something with this new look it will look strange alongside all my primitive things.
A really phenomenal local quilter has recently changed the LQS she works at. She does incredibly complex work and has a great colour sense. This is a FQ bundle she put together. I even love the ribbon that came around it. This will make a great table topper. I have been thinking of lightening up a bit for spring and summer and this will be perfect. Of course, first I have to make the table topper. And then I have to do the lightening up. Hmmm....good luck with that.
I am still working on the scrap quilt. I told you it had lots of pieces. Just two more rows to sew together and then another scrappy border to make and add. Lately I don't seem to be able to stick to working on one thing. Maybe soon I will manage to concentrate on something and get a finish. Or maybe not.
