You know, 
that point where you walk up to the cut-counter,
hand them your stack of fabrics and say
"a quarter-yard of each, please."
And you pray that when it's done,
it will look like they belong together.

I am not a natural quilt-fabric-coordinator.
I like things to match.
And my greatest challenge with quilts is accepting that
even if two fabrics look terrible side-by-side,
a pile of them can still look amazing together.

Cross my fingers.

  1. It's going to be amazing--and I want to see and help if I can. Seriously! Depending on how big you're making it, (queen size?) you'll need a ton of fabric. Maybe you should come to craft night? (Thursday night, 7:30, my house.) I can help you draft a plan, if you want. So you know how it's all going to come together.
