During Christmas I showed Carrie some fabrics from my stash, noting which she liked. Here are the fabrics I picked. There are ten of them. I only had fat quarters of the seven on the left and half yards of the three on the right. The large scale paisley (third from right) will be featured. I positively love that one and have been saving it for something special. Yes, I plan to sneak a bit of turquoise in there but in a very small dose, like a phantom spice in a great recipe. Never fear, Carrie, the quilt will be mainly brown and green. I tried to rein myself in. The backing is not in the picture; it will be a surprise where I mildly indulge my whim for the wild.
I started the quilt top today and am using an abstract pattern that favors large scale prints. Of course I needed to incorporate my signature polka dots. But, after all, I am just echoing what is already in the paisley print. Here is a sneak peek of one portion of the quilt. It really showcases that knockout, to-die-for paisley! So far I am happy that it says fun little girl to me. I hope it will please her mom and dad as well. Stay tuned.
Whoops! I forgot to say that since this is Work In Progress Wednesday I will hook up to WIP at http://www.freshlypieced.com/.
