Playing with stash.............

One of my friends mentioned that my quilts were international with the African and the Australian fabrics.  I told her maybe I should get out my Liberty Lawn fabrics and include the UK.  She asked if I had any other country's fabric and it reminded me that I had a Japanese line of Keiko Goke's.  I got them out and put them in a value run for a Trip Around the World.  I don't know if I'll really make it but I sure like them in this order.

I had a series of blues and yellows that I was going to make a quilt with several years ago.  I could never decide on a pattern so they sat on a shelf.  I put them in a TAW value order too, a double run which makes more than one ring of dark fabrics.  It would be more like this quilt (scroll down to second quilt).

Looks like two more quilts in the think tank are brewing. Chris

Lots of well put together choices. I am partial to the blues and yellows.

Both of those would be really pretty! TATW is another on my list for someday.

Wanda, I wish I knew someone in a foreign country so I could send them to a quilt shop! LOL I actually have a couple of the fabrics in your blue and yellow set and think your collection of fabrics would make a very pretty TAW. Frost on the pumpkins this morning. Stay warm.

I could enjoy looking at your stash fabrics all day!

Do you see any difference in 'the hand' of the fabrics from other countries vs USA ? Thread count, prints, etc. ?

Love the blues and yellows also. So pretty and refreshing.

How fun to see the blues and yellows - I've had that color combo in my head for weeks now . . . but I don't have the florals that you do!

I've just made a bag for a friend with some of the Liberty Lawn fabrics - aren't they just fab?!

Wanda, Of course there are the Indonesian batiks you often use. Were the Dutch wax indigos also Indonesian?

I still visit regularly even though I seldom comment. Your stunning quilts continue to astound me.

The first group of fabrics look SO MUCH more like you than the blue and yellow group. Not that they won't make a pretty quilt, but it will be rather far from the exuberant color that is your trademark now, I think?

I LOVE the top group of fabric. How fun are they... They are exactly what I would pick out for almost any quilt.

What a novel idea to do an international quilt with all of your international fabric collections!

I Love all your quilts and the colors are out of this world or should I say most of your fabric is out of the country lol. Keep the show coming!
