In your mind’s eye you have a picture of what you think you want something to look like, especially when you’re creating a quilt. I’m a “mannequin” buyer which relates to all things. I see it. I don’t want to hunt for it. Oh Sales Person please help me find all this stuff.
Last week I was at one of my new favorite fabric stores Material Girl. Up on the wall they had a beautiful quilt top using a brand new line of fabric in a disappearing 9 patch. Mannequin moment, that’s what I’ll use on my new little charm pack, Lovely by Sandy Gervais.
Long story short, I’ve used 2 Lovely charm packs and now I’m trying to decide if I should do sashing, which was not on the quilt top hanging in the shop.
Now I feel like a kid in the candy shop. I was originally going to use an inner boarder and an outer boarder. It’s all up the air as the quilt is trying to come ALIVE. Goodness, all the trials.
