this is where my heart is........

I didn't get much cleaning done, mostly picking up (cleaning off table tops), running errands and parking the vacuum cleaner in the living room, and the day was gone.  Time to play!  Here is where my heart is, putting groups of fabrics together.

I love the color range. I bought my first Kaffe book ("Country Garden Quilts") this past weekend on sale at JoAnn's; there are some nice possibilities in there!

Do you have any "ugly" fabric at all? You've only shown us gorgeous pieces! :o)

Those are some really beautiful fabrics!

-and, isn't it amazing how much of a difference it makes to have clean table-/countertops? Everything looks so much neater!

I would love to visit your fabric just to take the beauty all in. I just discovered the beauty of Kaffe fabric. I used to work in a quilt shop that stocked it and I thought it was gaudy. The problem was I was stuck in the very traditional design with civil war fabrics. I couldn't see how to use the Kaffe fabrics. Now I have grown a bit and bought a few FQs and decided they are really great, but hard to come by.
Reading your blog I have learned sometimes you need 200 fabrics to make the quilt not 5 and a background.
Thanks for the lessons!

Even though you were busy as a bee... you took time to show us, your beautiful array of fabrics. Your groups flow together like a rainbow that takes our breath away as the rain begins to subside.

'Your rainbow' will have to be my bright spot for today. RAIN and cold here in the mountains.

You have your fabrics all lined up and tuning up to sing a beautiful song together. Can't wait to hear (see) what it is!!!

What absolutely wonderful fabric - I just love the vibrant colours!

Oh how pretty! I think putting the fabrics together, and/or just looking at them is my favorite part of the whole process. And again, I have to tell you that I have learned a great deal about color by following your blog. And if your skies are as dreary as ours here in Wisconsin, one needs a color trip!

Oh I do love those Kaffe Fabrics- I just ordered a few older ones from a Canadian company that had them on clearance for 7 dollars a meter which is great price here in Canada( in the LQS they range in price 16-20 dollars a meter) They are not this years line but I don't care about that-
The hardest is to get many of the light ones- When Kaffe came here, I asked him if there could ever be too much color and his answer was succinct- No-
I am sure you will create something beautiful with this collection of fabrics. I have been building a collection of his fabrics for awhile now - it is still a small box but it is beginning to look like a collection VBG
Thanks for sharing your inspirational colors.
Regards,
Anna
