No, I didn't think so. I must have been in a wildly practical mood when I did this shopping.
But this does, right? This particular swirl of colors was stitched by LieblingsDecke, inspired by Daintytime's Modern Mood Quilt-along. The curves, the colors - it's calling me.
After publicly describing myself as one who doesn't like black, I've started seeing the color popping up and doing good in all sorts of places.
So, I did buy some Kona Pepper, Ash, Sky and Sour Apple to build up my ingredients for a someday solids project. I love how Sew Fresh Fabrics ships Kona with little sticky labels with the Kona name. I save them while I prewash the fabrics and stick them right back on when I'm done. Very handy!
Added some basics too! This is Moda Crossweave in Blue/White, Modern Meadow Herringbone (a favorite basic) and a Red Letter Day stripe in teal. The stripe was a little sample from a fat quarter bundle of Red Letter Day that I found quite tempting, especially as I've had fun with those ducks before. See - it was a very practical mood.
Now prewashed, pressed and ready for sewing!
