I can only look at a few pages before I'm daydreaming about new quilt projects. Today, I was actually able to read several pages, but before long, I was in the craft room digging through my fabric stash. I grabbed this one and that one, I lined them up, I stacked them up, I moved them around. I would take a piece of fabric out of the line up thinking it didn't work and put it away...only to pull it back out again and discover it really did work.
The process of choosing fabrics for a project is one of my favorite parts and I almost always completely lose track of time. At the end of that indeterminate amount of time, when I think I've reached a satisfying combination, I stand back and look and let myself enjoy the selections.
I am aware, however, that nothing is definite and, in the creating, things can sometimes change. So, for now, these are the pieces that made it to the winners' circle:
And speaking of winners, I'm so excited that I won Mother Henna's Mad Tea Party Giveaway! She was participating in Vanessa's (A Fanciful Twist) Mad Tea Party and was giving away two of her beautiful tea cups. I'm so thrilled to win! I read Mother Henna regularly--it's a blog that just overflows with goodness and inspiration!
I'm going to close this post with a piece of fabric that jumped out during the raid on my stash today...how fun is this?
