I feel better about the fabrics now and maybe I can take Sophie's joie de vivre and actually get some rounds on it.
I also saw a post the other day on Quilted Fabric Art where Carol talked about Seminole Piecing. It flashed through my mind as exactly what my LAST Tea Towel Quilt needs to get it back on track.
But that will happen later.......maybe........now I want to work on it! Geez.
Anyway. Here is what I added. I figured that if I am down 50 yards of usage,, I can afford to get a couple of that back for tea towel perfection. The London Fog towel is really difficult to color match. But here is what the color experts at the Red Stick came up with.
I don't know if you can actually see the color of the Bobby's blue,
but it, like the green grey of the towel, is an odd one. I previously had selected this a the only thing in my stash that matched. I felt the yellow dots would also fit in. It did not. The dots, which are actually apples, drew your eye directly to them, away from the focus of the quilt, the tea towel.
So we found this to replace it. I feel much better about the solid-ness. This photo is way off the color, adding too much yellow to it.
I am happier. Much happier. Sophie, head's up!
