Yesterday I posted about being asked to design a quilt using the “Into The Woods” fabric line by Sarah Watson (@hisarahwatson) and Cloud 9 Fabrics…..
As I studied this collection, I realized that I was going to need some solids to add to the mix. Normally, I would have just pulled some from my stash but I remembered that, if this was a pattern for sale, I needed to use current fabrics that could be purchased by the quiltmakers.
This meant….A TRIP TO THE FABRIC STORE!!!
And, when I say FABRIC store, this is what I mean…..
Are you drooling yet???
There is even fabric on the ceiling….
But on this day, I walked past all of the amazing prints and headed to the back corner where the Moda solids were housed…..
These were the fabrics that I had in my mind to purchase, BUT, when I started looking at them, I felt that the solid didn’t work well with the “Into the Woods” prints.
So, I moved over one shelf and found these…..
…..Toscana Collection from Northcott fabrics.
The mottled nature of these fabrics fit PERFECTLY with the prints!!
I came home with 11 cuts….
…that pair up beautifully with the focus fabrics…..
Now it is time to PLAY!!
