“I would never put those colors together…”

November 8, 2009

This is a comment I regularly hear from people who see the fabric I’m buying or quilts I’ve assembled. I don’t think it’s a testament to my prowess as a quilter, but more an indication that I spend most of my time buying fabric around traditional quilters who get nervous combining various forms of gingham. Okay, that’s a bit harsh! But when most quilters I run into in Joann’s are middle-aged women, they are definitely used to warm, country tones. I am not a warm county, calico kind of girl (though I did love Little House on the Prairie when I was little). I like to find creative ways to combine colors and prints and make every quilt something I’d want to have in my bedroom.

I’m really looking forward to working on the fabric below for a very cool, pear-tree inspired quilt. But it will have to wait until I finish the other two in front of it. I’m also very excited about them!
