..As if I need another project!
The Japanese taupes I purchased at Lolly's in Shipshewana were calling to me. I had recently found a pattern in a magazine that I felt would be a good match.
Looking at the picture (which I forgot to photograph) it appears the designer used three different fabrics in five values (light to dark) in each block. And it looks like there is very little repetition in the 25 blocks. That's 375 fabrics!! Fortunately I had purchased a roll of 40 strips as a starting point!
You probably know how it goes. Inspiration strikes and you start searching the stash for what might go with recent purchases and before you know it you have a pile of potential candidates.
Such was my case and I decided rather than earmark/isolate a large collection of fabric for this project or, worse, put it all back on the shelves and lose track of it, I should just go ahead and cut what is required. THEN put it back on the shelves.
So this was my "design" cutting table on Monday.
|Cutting table - unnamed project - 100+ fabrics|
Then, and only then, will I attack the flying geese....
Safe travels to those on the road this week. I hope everyone has a pleasant and lugubrious Thanksgiving!
