My jaw is better today. Still need a light painkiller, I am thinking it is pretty bruised up. I am nearly back to normal, but don't tell Frank that. He vacuumed and did the dishes yesterday. And fed the dogs. Now I need to find some symptom that gets him to clean the toilets........
I rewarded myself for finding the perfect fabric for my next quilt by going to Forest Park and walking a mile averaging 3.3 mph. Heart rate was in the fat burning zone!
Fact: It is difficult to find light batiks.
I got the main portion of the fabric from Fabric.com on sale at about
1/2 price. And I did find the perfect companion to the light batik from
Red Stick. NOT on sale of course.
I went to Red Stick Quilts this morning with the idea that I could always go to the other shop if I came up empty. But I made the perfect match.
8 yards plus 3 yards. It will be a big quilt. Maybe. One never knows with me.
I guess I can show them to you............
All three are the same fabric in the same light in the same position on my table. None are really a great representation of the colors, but the last two are closer. It was difficult to find a good light batik; and when I got it in the mail, I was quite shocked by the color. I had thought it would be a bit warmer. And that caused the piece I wanted to pair it with to no longer be a viable choice.
But now it is perfect.
