An escape from work......

I cut 10 more fabrics for the kits, at 180 now, 20 to go.  By late afternoon I was ready for a break from searching for the rest of the fabrics.  I have been wanting to cut into this gray dotted fabric and I knew I wanted to pair it with Kaffe, Jacobs and Mabley fabrics.  I went with the 4" finished triangle and started cutting.  I will do a little cutting for this each day and when I have time to get serious about it, it will be all ready to sew and play with it on the design wall.
The design opportunities will be many but it may end up a zig zag.
Now that I have a project to play with, the work hours won't seem so bad.  I know there will be reward time every day.

This looks like it's going to be fun. I love dots and the happiness and/or whimsey they can bring to a quilt.

And what a reward it is. It is going to be fun watching this one grow. Love those polka dots.

I found your blog by accident. I really love your colours! Your quilts are most beatiful what I have ever seen. And I have now learned a new, important word in english: exuperant!

Oh no, It was wrong, it is exuberant, now I know it :D

Hi Wanda,
I probably would have left the grey dot on the bolt, but looking at how you used it, I think I better get some! Whatever you're making with the combo is going to be great!
