Did you get the memo??

I am pulling fabric now. This inventory reduction quilt will be using up some Kona solids. Now that I photographed them, the colors look really boring. I may have to add or eliminate colors as I go… I refuse to buy more. Hmmm…

Kona cotton solids

This is the third quilt top I’ve put together, since the first of the year, and I really can’t see that I have made a dent in my inventory. At all……..

But I have a plan!

If you don’t know what I’m talking about apparently you aren’t Downton Abbey, the best television watching in a long, long time. Peter and I are totally addicted. It is a Masterpiece Theatre production from Britain and airs, on PBS, Sunday nights. This is the third season and it is so addicting! Seasons 1 and 2 are available, for free, to watch on your computer, if you have Amazon Prime. Your local library may have them too, but the waiting list could be very long, but oh so worth it.

Downton is a nice break from all the Civil War DVDs we’ve been watching since Christmas. Not sure whose brilliant gift idea that was <<shaking head… I have to say, this is much more fun to hand quilt, too!

And yes, please, free Mr. Bates!

    Good luck with reducing your “inventory”! I am on a mission this year to use more than I buy so that it doesn’t grow out of control – I need to bust some scraps, too.

    And dear, sweet Downton….! How it rips my heart out…

    Hi! Your fabrics look beautiful and I think those colours are great! That picture is super! Is that the pattern for your qiuilt? I’m so happy that from the autumn we have the Downton Abbey in tv – every Monday! Yesterday was the most sad episod where Sybil died. I’m worried about Mr. Bates.

    Boring colors? I don’t think so at all. Your techniques, and craftsmanship will definitely make those colors in a quilt BEAUTIFUL. Be Blessed, Mtetar http://projectsbyMtetar.wordpress.com
