You know that moment, where you spot fabric across the quilt shop and you have to rush over and investigate? Well, on a mission to get some thread the other day (yup, just thread) I picked up these 6 fabulous fat quarters from a fabric line I hadn’t seen before.
They’re from SUCH designs, part of the 2014 fabric line Paint by Carrie Bloomston the author of the Little Spark. I’d heard of the book before and it’s been in my Amazon shopping cart for a few weeks waiting for my next Amazon order and now it’s definitely on my must read Summer 2015 list! I was also fascinated in reading Carrie’s latest blog post about a social media fast – from mid May to late July she is foregoing the technology demands of her life and plugging into her family and herself. I love this idea and kind of wish I could do a 7 week sabbatical this summer, like I was lucky to have last summer, in the more restful clear state of mind that I have now.
When I opened up the fat quarters I was blown away by the prints, they are so unusual and unique. Quilting cotton prints, while vibrant and exciting, can seem a bit expected and these are anything but predictable. I love the way Carrie pulls together so many colors and textures in these fabrics and still makes it feel like a cohesive print or even line for that matter. I have an idea what I’d like to do with these but for now they are my Sunday stash inspiring me to finish my current work in progress projects so I can get to this one in due time!
What’s the most unusual fabric in your stash, how does it inspire you?
