The solids weren't quite working for me. There's a gorgeous quilt made of mostly solids in Denyse Schmidt Quilts that I've always wanted to make, so I checked it out again the other night and realized I didn't have the right color tones.
Yesterday on the way to Costco I told Olivia I needed to go to JoAnn and get some more colors and she retorted, "You don't need any more fabric, Mom. You want it. What are you going to do when all the shelves in your sewing room are full?" My suggestion that I add a fabric shelf to her room was met with disgust. What a little teenager, and she's only six. But I guess she had a point, so I came home and started fresh. Here's the result, and I'm much happier with it.
The prints are from last year's vintage sheet swap, which Elizabeth also hosted.
