Do you remember a time when my quilting style was this?
My stitch of fabric is based around it.
Now look at the where I am? I've done a 180.
This is the new Soul Blossoms collection by Amy. I'm still not a fan, but I'm forcing myself to use it. I'm thinking out side my comfort zone. I'm not into the big overpowering prints. When I do something with these I'm going to cut them into smaller pieces. I'm thinking around 2" in size. I am attracted to the colors of this collection not the prints. I will need to fussy cut my fabric to get the colors I'm going for, but I think it will be well worth my time. Don't go looking for me to start on this project anytime soon as my plate is very full, but I'm one that loves to plan quilts. I have lots of quilts that I have designed that I want to make, but I think I'm more in love with the designing part of quilting than I am in the getting in there and making it part. There is nothing wrong with that mind you. I know other people that are just the opposite.
Has your style changed since you started quilting? Are you attracted to the same color palette you once were? Leave me a comment and let me know. I find it amazing how we can start in one spot and end up in another. I never did dream I would be here, but I'm glad that I am.
There is still time to meet Pat Bravo of Art Gallery Fabric and get entered to win a FQ bundle of Modern Affair with some Nature Elements blenders. Check out the post here for a chance to win.
Until next time,
