What triggers your quilting excitement? Is it the thrill of breaking into a new fabric collection? Or is it the satisfaction that comes with using up all of the fabric?
I just couldn't wait to see what I could do with these bright and cheery Moda fabrics-- Comma Mini Charm Packs and the coordinating thread by Aurifil.
Out popped house after house, and with the addition of only three of my stash fabrics, I completed this wall-size quilt top.
To set off my 2-1/2" fabric squares, I chose a rich hand-dyed wool from The Wooly Lady. I also added a grey plaid homespun and a pearl grey polished cotton. Three different textures and finishes to create depth in the piece.
Now I was down to just a few narrow strips of my fabrics and used them in the borders.
There I did it. To my great satisfaction, I used it all.
Well, almost. I did have a small square of fabric left, less that an inch in size.
I was conflicted, should I find a way to use it also?
In a bold 2013 movement, I gently placed it in the trash.
