Playing with stash......

 

I went through many shelves of fabric and found pieces I would like to use in the next Fractured quilt.  One shelf unit always has a design wall in front of it so I don't shop in it as much.



I also added another row of neutrals.  Two of them are plainer so I'm not sure if they will stay.  I won't be starting the quilt with these for awhile but I can get some cutting done.



I put the two groups together to see if this is what I want for the light fabrics in Fractured.  It is super high contrast but I think some will work so I'll cut them at the same time I cut for the other quilt.

I just changed quilts on my bed to this one below that I finished in 2009.  It's a little more pastel in person than in the photo.  I have 5 quilts that I can use on my bed so I never get bored with any one of them.  Here is the post that shows the Kaffe quilt that I was inspired by.  He ran the stripes vertical and I did them horizontal.

Change in bed linens is always inviting. Neat that you have stash that doesn't get shopped often. That way you have variety and a totally different look to your creations. Chris

I think that new fractured quilt will be a real eye catcher

Those are indeed bright. I have a duvet over a down comforter. Can't sleep with a quilt anymore!!!

Hannah said...

Your bright colored fabric really pops. Very pretty. And the Kaffe quilt is lovely!

I so enjoyed catching up with all your posts that I missed this past week. Must say Holly Hobby tugged at my heart strings. I loved them as much as my girls did. And your pieces for your daughter are exceptional.

You sure have selected some fun pieces for another fractured quilt.

I can feel the anticipation of excitement coming on
I have 2 of Kathy D,s material obsession books . Is it worth buying the one to do Fr,. quilts or is it easy to work out .

Great picks for the next fractured quilt. Will be a show stopper. The summer end quilt is very inviting.

I bought the MO book because of all the "fracture" happiness exuding from yours and Julie's blogs. Like the simplicity of your bed quilt and impressed that you have 5. Looking forward to all the developments:)

Shopping your stash must be amazing fun! How neat to have a shelf you don't look at as often - it must be like rediscovering some fabulous fabrics!

I like your pastel quilt. It looks just right for a peaceful bedroom setting. And the brights and neutrals are playing together very nicely!

I like the bright colors for the fractured! I need to make more quilts for my bed. However, we still love out heavy Flannel. Even in summer, cause ot the air conditioner.

I love the high contrast of the fabrics. What you chose will look stunning!
