Tula Pink's Tabby Road Collection for FreeSpirit Fabrics
Most of you know that we're dog people at my house (Rottweillers are for snuggling. And for singing), but I have several friends who are cat lovers and these fabrics are just PERFECT for one of my friends in particular, so never mind the yards and yards of hoarded fabric in my studio; never mind that I STILL have not finished organizing what I already have. I HAVE TO HAVE this Tabby Road fabric, so I ordered it online and while I await its arrival in my mailbox, I played around with some design ideas in EQ7.
Meh, right? My first idea was Priscilla blocks, shown above. I really like how the stripes and dots work with those blocks. But it feels too busy with so many prints. If I do something like that, I'm going to need to use some coordinating solids to break up the prints. But I'm going to wait for my Tabby Road fabrics to arrive first and then match up some solids -- maybe even some from my stash!
After spending way too much time playing with Priscilla blocks, I wanted to see whether a simpler quilt might better showcase these fun novelty prints. So then I came up with this idea:
|I Like This Better!|
One more idea -- what if I chopped this collection up into 4" finished clamshells using the Accuquilt GO! Baby die cutter that I got for Christmas?
|Tabby Road 4" Clam Shells|
I don't know. I have no business starting a new project right now anyway, with so many works-in-progress and so few FINISHED projects to show for myself. I'll see how I feel about it once the fabric shows up.
Oh goodness -- How is it 11:06 PM already?!! Goodnight! I'm linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday at http://www.myquiltinfatuation.blogspot.com/.
