Many of you have posted your fabrics on your blogs but two I want to point out. My stash almost entirely consists of tone on tone fabrics. Seeing my fabric choices might make it harder for some who are struggling to choose their fabrics. Mine appear to be all matchy . . no florals, no plaids, no paisleys, no kid prints . . I don’t possess those
Vickie posted her choices and it’s a great example of what I’m hoping to see. Some of her darks could be considered on the lighter side of dark; some of her lights could be on the darker side of light but when darker lights are paired with very dark darks and when lighter darks are paried with very light lights . . it works! Vickie’s choices are also lots of different prints . . the kinds of fabric I would struggle to put together but that’s what you need to do . . not struggle . . put fabrics together that you wouldn’t normally put together.
As I told my other Vicky friend, and she so boldly put on her blog . . thank you very much Vicky!
“You can do it. You may not like it but it’s time to . . you know what . . or get off the pot! Either use the stash or stop adding to it. You have to decide . . did I buy this fabric to collect or did I buy it to use on a rainy day. USE THE STASH!!!”
Now if you go to Vicky’s picture, she has totally different fabrics from Vickie but they’re going to work and they’re going to be beautiful and it’s going to be a great quilt!
I’m so happy to see the fabrics you’ve all pulled from your stashes and I do hope that once we do a few of these stash projects, you’ll be much better able to use the fabric in the stash. It’s time to . . you know what . . or . . oh, I’m not saying it again! 🙂
