Getting a late start

Hi, Erin here. When I last posted, I was getting ready to order my fabrics while I was house sitting; but I didn't have an internet connection so I never did order my fabrics. It's just as well because I changed my mind on my inspirational quilt. I was thinking of using #070 as my inspiration, but while I was looking at some quilt photos in my inspiration file, I noticed that #070 looked too much like a Kaffe Fassett quilt that I like. I decided on #094 for my inspiration instead.

It took me a while to narrow down my color choices. I kept wanting to add in more and more colors. I'm using the Krystal line from Michael Miller Fabrics. I finally decided to add only those fabrics named for fruits to my shopping cart and see what I ended up with.


I thought it looked like a pleasing combo. So I have fun color names like mango, pomegranate, papaya, blueberry, raspberry, and citron. That influenced my word choices. I'm going to call my quilt "Tutti Frutti." Unfortunately I'm house sitting [again] and my camera battery is dead so I can't show you any more than that right now.
