We are quickly approaching one of my most favorite times of the year...Quilt Show Season!
The Little Shop of Stitches has reserved booths in three local quilt shows to date. Some of you may remember our "World Tour" from the fall. (If you missed it, click here and here.) This will be the first time we go to a real-for-real quilt show. So, some preparations are in order.
I have to admit that looking through the pages and pages of the newest fabrics online could be an all-day activity for me. So many pretty things! How do I choose? I love it all! More on that later.
Next, I need some sample quilts to show off the lovely fabric we already carry. So, last week, I made a list of projects and jumped right in. I started with one Ruby charm pack from Moda. Since the colors already coordinate, I didn't have to think very much. Look, how lovely!
I used a Tumbler ruler to trim the edges from the charm squares. (The Tumbler ruler will be available in The Little Shop soon!) And, voila! Ruby Tumbles!
I call this look "Un-Scrappy." Because the charm packs have such a wide variety of prints, it feels like a scrappy quilt. But, since the colors repeat in those prints, it all coordinates at the same time. Un-Scrappy makes me happy!
The borders are different fabrics, with the green coming from Studio E, and the red is a simple pindot. (Both are available in our Etsy shop!) I am pleased. Good job, Ruby!
So now, I continue to look through those pages and pages of new fabrics. I tend to go for the bright colors and the kid prints. Please...leave a comment below. What fabrics do you like? What colors are your favorites right now? Do you have favorite designers? Thanks for your input!
