Saturday Shopping Results

Saturday, January 16, 2010
Yesterday we went shopping.  I was looking for a piece of fabric for Rosewillow's challenge.  I searched for a blue, purple, yellow, orange, peach, and a red.  But guess what--the perfect match was a GREEN!  Yes, I had the ladies in the store look too, and the green was the best match.  The neutral will be Kona Sand.



I was really looking for a blue, and may find one yet, but at the moment this is what I have.  And I have two pattens, the first one I am going to make is--




It will show my "people", I hated the thought of cutting them up.   I did do a bit of "retail therapy", but not much.   I will confess all on my Sunday Stash Report.

I like the color combination and the pattern - it will be pathways through a crowd of people. Form the little bit of fabric, it looks like the fabric is directional.

With my luck, I would sew it all together and discover that the middle square was upside down!

Good luck with the first cut!

That look great but I do agree that you also need a blue. Exactly how much retail therapy have you been involved in?

That looks like a great pattern choice--how big are those large bits?

LOVE the color match!! it's perfect stay with it! pulls out the green dude and he's kinda sparse in the fabric so it's perfect.

I think that pattern is going to be AWESOME with your "people." And I agree with everyone about the green. It does pull out some of the more obscure parts of the print.

Didn't you say, though that you had a LOT of that fabric? Maybe if you do find a pretty blue that you like, you could make another quilt with it.

Can't wait to see it!

Pretty color! It will be fun to see how your royalty sews together.
