I'm so so happy to say that this quilt top is done. All these beautiful "reproductions" from Caryl Bryer Fallert's hand dyes are together in one quilt top (no culling out of warms or browns, as I had planned). I adore it. The colors together make me very very happy -- as does getting it off the design wall, off the floor, off my cutting table, off my sewing table..... It had taken over my little sewing room. Now it is neatly folded and waiting for quilting inspiration (and time). I had failed to mention in my original post that this is a free pattern from Marcus Fabrics using their Ombre strips (pattern is called Ombre Hand Dyes by Nancy Rink). I think we sometimes forget about all the great FREE patterns that fabric manufacturers have available to us through their websites. Anyway -- it's done and the floor is now visible in my sewing room.
This will be years in the making --
But, all in all, a good week. One quilt top made with 2.5" strips and only 15 pieces in the entire block. And, one step completed in teeny tiny pieces of all kinds -- darks, lights, batiks, vintage, low quality, homespuns, Kaffe, hand-dyes, florals, novelties, you name it. So much fun to come across someone else's fabrics -- and keep the line moving!
I hope you are having a productive week -- whether it's with little bitty pieces or larger, dramatic pieces, or quilting, or cutting, or designing, or just dreaming of your next project!
