Got quite a bit of spring cleaning done yesterday! I finally gathered up my unused fabric and donated it at the fabric store a few towns over. I had some home decor that never got used for a project and some apparel fabric from my occasional delusion that I’m skilled enough to make apparel I’d actually wear. I even started to list some of my photography equipment that I haven’t touched in years on Craigslist to clean house a bit.
Well while I was at the fabric store I rationalized that since I’d cleaned up some space I could totally pick up a little fabric.
Nothing was really inspiring me until I found that print, once I did I ran over to the Kona Solids to try and find all the right matches. I’m not in love with the pink I picked. The selection was a bit limited, I might swap it out for something brighter to match the print.
I grabbed slightly arbitrary amounts of the fabric since I didn’t know what quilt top I’d be making with it. 2 yards of the print, 1 yard of the dark grey and 1/2 yard of all the other solids.
Driving home I decided this had to be a plus sign quilt. I’ve been dying to do one and I think the combination of the solids with the print will look phenomenal. It’s neat cause this is not my typical color palette too!
I whipped up a design in EQ7 (now available for Macs!!!!!)
What do you think? Is this the right design for this set of fabric?
