I did it. I finally cut into my collection of Tula Pink fabrics. This is my starting point: a full FQ bundle of Acacia, a pile of lovely scraps from many collections, some solids, and cuts of fabric I've found here and there.
This is the result of sorting the fabrics by color.
Confirms what I always suspected about my color preferences. Heavy on cool colors, light on the warms.
Seems like I need to buy more fabric in warm colors to balance things out a bit!
I started with the first block...
and kept going.
I skipped a few blocks as I just didn't "feel" the right fabric combinations.
This block is my favorite so far.
Really, believe me when I tell you that each and every piece of this fabric is beautiful. Like this one...
Do you see the little mice? I will have to find a reason to pair this up with Lizzy House's Cat Nap!
It occurred to me that I should have a plan for this quilt. That would make sense. Even be smart. However, after enjoying all the beautiful finished quilt tops in the City Sampler Sew Along, I feel confident that the combination of Tula's beautiful fabrics with her interesting blocks will yield something I can work with in the end. I have decided to, uncharacteristically, free style this by making each block one by one. If I am happy with each block, I will be happy with the combination. Stay tuned!
