Finally, a decision on fabrics...these two bundles of fabrics from my stash have been with the book trying to inspire me about what to use...
|tsy Bitsy by Renee Nanneman of Need'l Love for Andover Fabrics|
|Where the Wind Blows by Melanie Hurlston of Melly & Me for Creative Abundance...|
the decision is both...generally Itsy Bitsy for the backgrounds/cream/beige prints...Where the Wind Blows for the applique...of course bits and bobs may interchange along the way...Itsy Bitsy has resided in the sewing room for quite some time as have a couple of pieces of Where the Wind Blows, in August when I went to Urban Stitches I was coerced into buying the bundle of Where the Wind Blows...OK not so much coerced as when I asked my so called friends not to let me buy it even though it was on special and a great bargain, they all rebelled and convinced me that I needed it!...apparently I did...for this quilt!!! I've a couple of Cosmo Seasons variegated threads in the floss stash which I'm thinking just may be right for the stitchery/embroidery.
Now to wash the WTWB bundle.
