Friday Furball – Princess and the P…

13Aug16ginger …Pile of Fabric. Ginger pretends that she doesn’t like to have her picture taken, but she manages to insert herself into he majority I take of fabric and quilts. She has good taste. She also won the coin toss with Rusty and is sitting in a favoured cat perch. Here she is with my latest fabric rescue.

It’s the funniest thing about fabric. Try and match up some fabrics for a project from the one-ton stash and there’s always something missing. I had to take a quick trip into the city yesterday to visit my favourite Local Quilt Shop to round out a colour 13Aug16fabric selection. I am happy to report a successful mission. I needed fabric to contrast with a red and a blue, and I needed to find a nice, pale gray. It’s not easy finding a good gray. It looks rather whitish in this picture, but I made my first block tonight and it works just fine against the dark background. The dark blue and red are Clothworks’ Laurel Burch patterns, and the lighter shades are Moda Marbles. It’s looking good so far.

Until next time,
