Mystery Quilt / Post #1
here are my fabric choices for the mystery quilt "Double Delight".
I am woefully behind, as she has ALREADY posted step #4 and I don't even have step #1 finished yet!
My cutting mat is a lime green one from Wal-Mart and it makes these fabrics look so washed out & I also took the photos at night & it's more than a little dark in upstaris in our bonus room (I do nearly all my sewing at night)...I have shirtings, multiple pinks, multiple blues & multiple browns. I don't have any "cheddars", I am using "golds" or what resembles gold to me. I refuse to go buy more fabric, it's not like I NEED fabric, so I was determined to make it from stash. the only thing I'll consdier as a "need" to purchase, will be borders for this project.....
Speaking of mats, I like this brand, because even though they are the same price as other mats, they are double sided...but dang if they are not the STINKIEST mats! Smells like a skunk took up residence in my sewing area! Blek!
