quilt fabrics chosen!
I picked out all the fabrics I want to use in my multi-colored quilt of awesomeness for the new, bigger, more awesome bed. It will be layered over a white duvet, when the weather is appropriate. And it won't be quilted in rainbow order... I'll be as random as I can possibly be, ha!
I picked all Amy Butler and Joel Dewberry fabrics, and they are no more than $8.00 a yard... although I won't need a full yard of each one. I was going to use some website I found, but then I discovered Hawthorne Threads (thanks to Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy). I am going to use white for the backing, and pick one to use as a binding.
By the way, purple fabric - almost impossible to find. I was willing to use a different designer, but I only found a couple and I didn't care for them much. I just made up for it by adding a couple more blues.
I decided to go ahead and order the fabric now. Since some of them are gone when they're gone, I don't want to lose out on a fabric I really like. This quilt will be much easier to piece than the other one I am working on.
I really hope it turns out how I am imagining. I can't wait to get started... or to be finished with it! I'll be sure to share the process with y'all (that's the word that popped in my head... so I went ahead and typed it, don't judge me).
