I'll have to apologize for the smokey-dreamy quality of the photos in this post. It just so happens they match my own feelings when it comes to my own fabric but really unintentionally this was captured on film. The loft, or my creative space, is exceptionally sunny today (I'm a lucky, lucky girl!).
I'm still plugging away on my Hope Valley Patchwork Style quilt... planning and plotting and procrastinating some might say, but I'm really wanting this quilt to be well thought out. Some new fabrics for a quick mid-winter quilt were pulled this weekend, and though I thought it would be a little more chaotic in terms of color choice (I really just wanted to use fabrics I'm loving at the moment) the fabrics I chose are mostly green, grey, yellow and orange. A really nice combination, but it does make me a bit apprehensive. I tend to love color, but get a little tired of some combinations quite quickly. Grey and yellow will be a perennial love, so I'm safe there... but I did go through a very unfortunate pastel phase not long ago. Shudder.
The charcoal grey at the top is Anna Maria Horner's Little Folks Voile in River, and I love, love, love it. It has replaced Kona Coal as my favorite solid. I'm thinking the quilt will be primarily made up of this fabric and the rest will just accent. I found a fantastic pattern for a simple patchwork quilt at Alicia Paulson's blog and think it will be easy enough to get done by the end of vacation... famous last words.
Some more dreamy shots for you, and some dreamy fabric? Maybe? Hope this weekend finds you dreaming and plotting and planning and even procrastinating if need be. So long for now...
