It was my birthday recently and I used my birthday discount at a local quilt store to add to my stash. Not that it needed it, but some things you just don’t question. <grin>
Before I left for the store, I made a list so I’d be sure to get things I actually needed. First, I purchased fabrics I needed for my art challenge.
Mostly, I found what I needed in Moda’s Grunge line. I really love the color variances and texture the Grundge fabrics add to a quilt.
I also knew that these lovely yellows from the Toscana line by Northcott Fabrics would be perfect for my art project.
Next, I focused on finding fabric for another rendition of my Brickyard pattern. I wanted to find just the right focus fabric, then match it with the perfect solids for my “bricks.” First, I found these two fabrics and just fell in love. The black and white fabric is Vanity Fair by Deborah Edwards for Northcott Fabrics. If I used it as the focus, I thought I’d add bricks in various shades of red. The leaf fabric is Leaf Dance by Jane Sassman for Free Spirit. If I used it as the focal fabric, I would have paired it with various shades of blue and green.
Although I bought some of each fabric (hey, it was my birthday), I found this Tula Pink fabric and knew it was perfect! Its Chipper by Tula Pink for Free Spirit. I love the colors and how funky it is! I mean, who else besides Tula would think that a squirrel on quilt fabric would be so beautiful?
I found some lovely fabrics (a mix of solids and prints) for the bricks.
I share my blog posts with these awesome linky parties!
