COLOR – Lovely, vibrant, dazzling & wonderful color…

One of my favorite things, besides fabric (of course) and print/pattern (of course) is color.

I LOVE COLOR!

I remember opening up my new crayon box and sitting there studying the crayons as if they were color chips.  I didn’t dare use my favorite colors, and, ummmm, every color was my favorite!  🙂 Fortunately,  I was lucky enough to have multiple sets of crayons.  There was one that was dedicated for “show only”.     Kind of like your mom’s “good scissors” that were only for fabric.  I still think twice before using my scissors – every time!!!

Things haven’t changed much, I still love staring at color and I found my niche working here!  I’m so lucky!

So…when I saw this collection of “basics” or “blenders” by Dan Morris, I immediately fell in love.  This is my visual Ode to Scrollscapes and I hope you enjoy it!

Showing the full width of the fabric and it’s repeat. Measures approximately 44″ x 24″ from selvedge to selvedge.

Below, I took samples from the fabric to show the variations within the selvedge to selvedge repeat! So many great options.  It’s really a bunch of fabrics in one!

5″ Sections from the repeat of the fabric… pretty fabulous!

I’ll be back next week to talk a little more about colors, color stories and how to pick the perfect palette for your next project!

Next week, I’ll announce a new contest where you could be the winner of a fat quarter of each of these colors!   Come on back, we want to spoil you with fabulous, colorful, Scrollscapes fabrics!


 

Sunset is still my favorite color, and rainbow is second.

What are you most thankful for???

I am thankful for…  so many things.  I make it a point before I go to bed each night to think of something I was especially grateful for that day.  Of course, there are days of sunshine and days of shadows, but there is ALWAYS something to appreciate.

The above designs are from our “In Bloom” collection by Dan Morris.   I love the rich, vivid colors and the beautiful flowers.  Color and pattern are some things that always bring me Joy, I hope you find joy in the little things today and always… Happy Thanksgiving!

 


Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it.

We must ask you about your Stash!

Let’s face it – we all have our fabric stash.  We will discuss this again and again.  I am unapologetic for mine – it is part of who I am as a creative person.  You never know when you will need that 6″ strip of fabric from 1978.  It’s really really really important to keep it,  just in case.

 QT fabric stash…stock-pile…ummm hoard?

Here’s some of our QT stash… I was thinking that we should all take pictures of our “stash” and put the hashtag #MustAddtomyStash  Don’t forget to include #quiltingtreasuresfabrics Facebook is always a great way to show your stuff too!  Post a picture to our wall and/or tag us!

I still have fabric that is untouched in my “organized” plastic drawers, just screaming to be used.   Why do we do that?  For me, I know it’s because I want to be hit by the epiphany truck… just the right project for the right time…  You never know!

Having said that, here is the first of an ongoing theme to feature for our blog “Must Add to my Stash”  Take a peek, these collections are hitting the stores in September and will be a nice addition to your stash 😉

 What do you think?… Must add to your stash??? It's a Ruff Life


If I want to calm down, I’ll buy some fabric, get a pattern, shut myself in a room and stay there for days, really happy. And at the end of it, you get a bedspread or some curtains or something to wear – it’s lovely.     Twiggy
