These Kona solids are to do something with this Alexander Henry print I found recently (yes, while on my "diet"). I also ordered a dozen fat quarters or so of various Kaffe Fasset prints that coordinate with these. My thought is that my oldest son might be ready for a more mature quilt in the next year or so. I actually thought I ordered these from www.quiltartsonline 2 weeks ago when I saw that they had a killer 50% off sale. After my 1st order with them arrived last weekend, I hoped the remainder would be along soon. I checked their site yesterday to find my order was canceled and they'd gone out of business! Sucks - it was all on sale then :-)
These were also found last week on a 30% off sale. There's just something about that mustardy-yellow-green and loden and pink that I am so attracted to right now. With Sophie's quilt nearly finished, and my desire to keep her from ruining it before she can appreciate it, I am contemplating doing a simpler and smaller quilt for her to use until she is a little older - maybe not a full twin size, but a large lap quilt. I'd like to do a simple diamond pattern in all of these bright and fresh prints. I have more than enough of them right now.
So, I have been quite naughty. I rationalise this on account of a healthy tax return due in to my bank account in a few days, and my hubby getting a more than health company bonus in April. I have another 10 yards or so somewhere enroute to me - including half a dozen colors of this Fairy Frost that I adore so much! Now once I complete a couple of chores I have in the works (SFRR3 border and row robin row, and 2 birthday blocks) I can hunker down and focus on another large quilt. Simple, but large. I want the fabrics to speak, not the pattern.
