So way back at the end of November I splurged and used some inheritance money to go south for a workshop with Victoria Findlay Wolfe. Hosted by the fabulous modern quilt guild of Bainbridge Island I had a great time. For the workshop I had had an idea to reduce the amount of blue fabrics I have.
I used to have four clear plastic shoe boxes of fabrics (all the small bits, <.5m) for all my colours. Yes, all my bits of fabric fit in four boxes. (There are two medium rubbermaids of yardage/big pieces in the garage). And then I added a clear plastic boot box (just slightly bigger than the shoe box) for the solids. And same again for blacks/whites/greys. And scraps too. But all the colours were still in those four bins.
- Low volume/mulitcoloured prints.
I had too many blues.
So I decided to use only blue fabrics for my 15 minute improv workshop. I have a pattern in mind to use these for, so there is a destination in mind.
As of today, I have 68 of 88 blocks done. And the blues still overflow one damn bin.
I’ve also linked up for the very first time with the all-Canadian Wednesday Needle and Thread Network!
