New Fabric

I found out at the beginning of the week that I won 1 yard of fabric from Fat Quarter Shop courtesy Richard and Tanya Quilts.  How exciting!  Except do you know how hard it is to pick one, and only one yard of fabric?  Especially when you're trying really hard not to add any projects to your list?

I narrowed it down to four and then to two.  I almost went with a blue one, but ended up with Bespoken Passion by Pat Bravo because I though it might match the green walls we have.

It does!  It is actually a really nice match.  So now I'm trying to figure out how to use it, even though it might be a while before I get to it.  A pillow or two?  A runner?

I also realized that I never showed the fabrics I got from my aunt a few weeks ago.  She bought them several years back intending to make a watercolor quilt.  She got as far as picking the fabrics (although I think there are a few other random fabrics in there too.)
I'd like to make her a throw out of the fabrics, but haven't quite come up with anything that I love yet.  That's's low on the list right now so I have a while to figure it out.  It's nice to be able to mull it over for a while.

Linking up with Finding Fifth.


  1. Uh....I don't think I would have an easy time picking just 1 yard of fabric. Lucky you!

  2. Just one yard?! That IS hard! But you picked beautifully!

  3. Yes that Pat Bravo design has a good mix of colour. Making your aunt something would be a sweet thing to do - many folks burn out with projects and it would be nice to repurpose some life into these fabrics for her. Thanks for linking up today.

  4. I love what you chose. : )

  5. I'm having the same dilema so I understand, it's hard and I haven't made my decisssion yet.

  6. Wow, how did you choose just one? Great choice though!

  7. Great choice - it matches the green walls perfectly. Pillows would be awesome! How nice to get free fabric from your aunt. A watercolor quilt would be lovely.

  8. I love Pat Bravo! That fabric is so posh! And that stack at the bottom is quite lovely too. :)


Thanks for commenting...I love seeing what you have to say!
