I forgot to keep you all abreast of my adventures in Fabric-land.
These 20 long quarters (as opposed to fats) were bought last weekend over two days at City Quilter. On Saturday, I spent over an hour wandering around, trying to find fabric that inspired me. After an hour, I just grabbed a random collection of pieces, paid, and left.
I didn’t see any colors that seemed interesting. No patterns jumped out. I was a bit frustrated.
So, after taking some deep breaths and looking what I bought the next day, I trekked back to flesh out my weekly Roy G. Biv investment.
And this is what I got. I’m pleased with it.
I have to remind myself that if one goal of the project is to incorporate as many different fabrics as possible, I will probably be buying most of the inventory of City Quilter in the years it will take me to do this project. I should just embrace it; all those fabrics will eventually be mine (in quarter yard pieces) and I will find interesting ways to pair them together.
I have to remind myself diversity is key for this project to work. Every piece will hopefully be unique in its own way. Every piece might not be my favorite; some will be more exciting than others. But, every piece is a step in the right direction, you know?
When the pieces come together, the product will be interesting.
What’s that phrase?
“Can’t see the forest for the trees?”
It might apply here.
