Planning ahead........

This is my next selection for a stack and slash quilt.  I will use the floral print more often than the rest of the fabrics.  I may wait until after Christmas to start this one.

Yesterday my blogger friend was travelling through this area again so we went to lunch.  She was also looking for a fabric with a certain color group for a quilt she is making so I let her look through my fabric stacks and she found a couple possibilities.  She also had the fun of looking through my mug rugs for the one she would take home.  After she left I had fun rearranging the fabrics on one shelf.  I love grouping and restacking the fabric, very therapeutic.

Hi Wanda,
Great color combo. Bright and cheerful to work on for a grey winter day.

So are you going to open your quilt stash for individual or group fabric pulling and sorting sessions? Business opportunity! Price of admission is one shady perennial plant.

Keep warm!

Wanda ~ Those are a wonderful array of fabrics, spinning off of the floral. I hope you wait till the New Year. I am finding it my days are going faster than I want this year. I will have family here for a week and am looking forward to it.

If I don't get a chance again... till the new year that is... I am wishing you a heart felt Merry Christmas and a Healthy New Year.

Your fabric selections are beautiful as always. You must be joined at the left hip with your sewing machine. LOL What in the world would we do without them?
