I'm so excited I wish I was headed there tomorrow. I've decided to select from my stash. I pull out 24 fat quarters of 30's reproduction fabrics to use for my dark fabrics. They are somewhat color coordinated. Red, pink, blue, green and yellow.
I ran into a little bit of a hitch. I'm supposed to also have 12 light fabrics to use as well. I looked around and couldn't find enough fabrics that paired well with the 30's fabrics.
I ended up deciding to be a guinea pig and test out how the quilt will work with only one light fabric. I'm using a white fabric with a small blue print on it. I think it looks great with the dark fabrics.
I love the little kit I put together for myself. Three weeks from today I will be finished with the weekend. The excitement is killing me.
