I’m sure that there are two questions on people’s minds right now when you enter my blog – how’s the dress coming and what did you buy yesterday?
First, let’s tackle the dress. Today is the day of the reception and I’m almost done. It will be complete before we have to head out to the party – thank goodness Taylor has softball this afternoon, because it gives me just enough time to finish it while they’re out practicing! Consequently, completed project photos will have to wait until Sunday’s post (which will probably be put up late in the evening).
Now for the shopping. I have to say, I’m a bit disappointed in the fat quarter selection – it was slim pickins’! I was hoping to get a group of fabrics that were either bold batiks (that I could use on a black background) or a set that looked like they really coordinated well together. Instead, I settled on these:
The top three are just for fun – a watermelon seed print and 2 Belle prints by Amy Butler. The rest are enough to make a Caddy Corners quilt. I decided that it needed lots of contrast so I’ve opted for a black, white, pink, and turquoise theme. Give me your honest opinion, what do you think (I’m leaning toward omitting the turquoise and just going with black, white, and the bold pink colors)?
