Today I hit our folk art quilt store.
I wanted something that had a sampler look to it and the sampler fabric, was too large a print for my piece.
I found one piece, that was perfect, but it was a fat quarter and only one.
So, this is what I ended up with, I think the scroll leaves works well with the piece and when I put it on, the leaves will be going upwards. I was thinking of using the coffee stain, blends better with the tea stain, but I do like a the leaf pattern. What do you think?
I found some tans at the sale table, so bought a few yards to add to my christmas hexagon, stash.
The floral fat quarter is the one I loved, but that was all she had.
And thank you all for the kind words. I know what I had in mind and of course, it didn't come out that way. I do still have things to add a theme, so hoping that brings it all together.
On the way back, we stopped at the cliffs to look at the ocean. We just went on the short path to look at the water, too cold and icy to walk far. I love the look of snow on the rocks.
And this was from a zoom shot. You cannot see seals since they stay farther off, so I zoom in and check them when I get home. No seals in this area, but I thought this made a nice abstract.
