Almost all my fabrics got changed out. I think my decision is made. Maybe. I’m going to start sewing today . . this morning!
Several times while I was working on writing the blog post, photographing the fabrics, pulling fabrics, Vince walked in and to him, it appeared I was sitting at the computer accomplishing nothing. Oh . . if only he knew the struggles that go on in order to make a perfect quilt! I asked him to come in and look at the choices. All he looked at were the choices on the blog post. He didn’t like any of them. Remember . . his favorite colors are light brown and dark brown. I showed him the EQ drawing.
Vince: Oh, I like that. Just use those same colors.
Me: That’s kinda what I’m trying to do. See Choice #6.
Vince: No! I mean . . use those exact same fabrics in the drawing!
Me: Want to drive 2 hours to a quilt shop and buy about 13 yards of fabric for about $150 or more?
Vince: NO! I think any of those choices look really nice!
That’s about what I thought.
Here are my fabrics:
I spent the entire day changing out fabrics and ended up pretty much exactly where I started. I still may change the white to ecru but the white makes the green quilt look so bright, that’s why I’m sticking with white for now. My friend, like most folks in Louisiana, is a big LSU fan so the gold and purple should be a good choice for her.
I changed out the dark purple for a not so dark purple Dimples. I changed out the lighter purple for a lavender Krystal. I changed out the accent for the gold Dimples. The white is the original white Dimples. The black is the original black Dimples. If I change back to ecru, that’s a Dimples also.
And, here’s my color chart.
I hope by the time you read this, I’ll have at least a little sewing done on this top. I’m so anxious to get started.
