This is the main panel. Although I am still not sure of the design I will use for this quilt, I will probably cut these apart......
Here are some of them up close...look at all the cute details!
This is the fabric that first caught my eye.... it's a deep, rich purple, and I just love the sayings on it!
This is my favorite part...
Here are some of the coordinate fabrics that I picked up as well....Isn't this a fun and really cute line?!? I'm so delighted that Laurel's family is beginning to release more of her designs. No one does it quite like her, and the quilting world lost a great artist when she died.
Oh well, that's the way it goes sometimes, right? I'm sure I'll forget all about that when I get the chance to cut into these fun prints and begin to create.
I also stopped at Loose Threads in Harriman, Tennessee, and dug through their scrap bucket. In addition to all the wonderful fabric, tools, notions and sewing machines at this shop, they have a bucket that they place right at the side of the door, filled with little packets of scraps for $2 and $3. There may be anywhere from 4 to 6 fabrics in there, depending on the size of the scrap and the price of the bag. Most scraps are at least 3 inches WOF, and some are as wide as 7 or 8 inches!
I picked up two bags of orange scraps to replenish my scrap bin. I just about cleaned them out during the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this year, and what was left was not really very interesting or inspiring. I needed fresh inspiration in that bin!
And then I couldn't resist a couple of bags of these black prints! What great variety & interest here!!!
