I just got this stack of beauties in the mail. So much fun in such a small package!
I “finally” got a round to signing up for one of those stash-building fabric subscription services. You’ve seen them, right? You pay a certain amount per month and they send you a stack of fabric. You can choose size of each piece of fabric, too, which will affect your monthly bill. This one works its way through the color rainbow and sends a variety, of one color, every month. There are several different companies that offer this service and I’m not sure why but I chose Fabric Shoppe’s Color Your Stash but I did. I chose the fat quarter size, I think it will be plenty for the type quilts I make. I couldn’t be happier!!
January’s color shipment was pink and I received my package of 12 prints that are from light to dark as well as a matching Auriful thread. Love Auriful. I was late signing up so I just received this one and expect February’s reds pretty quickly. How fun is that? Have you ever participated in one of these services? Were you happy with it? Did you stick it out through the whole color wheel?
I have been draining my stash pretty well, lately, and have felt pretty weak in certain color areas. I thought this would be the easiest way to start filling it in without having to make all those difficult decisions myself. Anyone else feel that way???
Or maybe I just felt like I deserved something for cleaning and organizing…. again….
And while I pet all those beauties, I am continuing to play with my scraps. I hate cutting into new fabric right away. I like thinking about all the possibilities!
So playing with scraps, shapes and cardboard templates is what I’m doing while I wish this winter away. Somehow playing with color helps.
How about you?
