I've been busy today..... pulling fabrics for quilts! Yippee!!!
I was talking to my son and it's time for his girls to have some new quilts. Can a child have too many quilts? *grin* Anyhow, one of his girls is a girly girl, loves all things pink and sparkly, and the other one is a huge tom-boy and loves Red! So I despair a little bit.... I have LOTS of blues and LOTS of teals, some oranges and flowers and so forth and a few greens.... pinks, not so much and I don't even know if I have any reds! But, then really, I don't remember exactly what I have because I have WAY too much fabric! So I've been digging.
Pink prints that I found in my stash
More pink prints in my stash
More pinks, these are all from one line. It was called Fushia and I love these.
This is a yard cut of the Fushia line.
More Fushia stuff! Except for that last one on the far right, I think that's from another line, but it goes with the rest of this well.....
I looks at the fabrics, and I move them around and I look at the patterns I have and the ones I lust for...
Do I buy a new pattern, what shall I buy, what ones do I have that I haven't used, or the ones that I have used...
For the girly girl I decide to make this pattern:
I bought this a while back and I've never used it. I think this is good for a girly girl and that the fushia prints will do well with it....
Well, I decide to use the Fushia prints, and to those I'm going to add:
For the leaves..... I'm going to make them all the same color.
And I thought I'd make the centers a solid color since the fushia prints are pretty busy prints.
And for the white, this white on white print. I love this and I've never used this either and I have a lot of it!
Ok, that takes care of one granddaughter, now on to the second one:
I have more reds than I thought I did!
Some aren't totally red but have red in them...
Lots of different shades of reds...
Have no clue where most of these came from!
So, I was thinking of using this pattern for the reds:
I've not made this one yet, and it might look good in reds and a few other colors...???
And then I was on the Thimble Blossoms site and saw this! I think this would be very pretty in reds and whites and maybe some yellows...????
What say y'all?
I just love the Thimble Blossoms patterns and this is so pretty!
Well, I have a bit of time to make up my mind about this one!
The weather out today is horrible. It was raining when I got up. Then it cleared and got up to about 60 and the sun was shining and then it started blowing and thundering and more rain!
I can sort of see the mountains to the north right there at the right of the pic, but they are now gone! Not a mountain to be seen in any direction!
And Rudy's out there playing and wanting to chase the toys!
Here comes my little monster!! And yes, a 7 month old puppy is something very similar to a monster!! Kind of like a teenage boy, oh joy!!
Ok, I'm getting cold now, probably time to turn on some heat. Thought I was done with heat for the year. Poo.
Have a great weekend and God Bless!
