Fabric

I was sitting here the other day, looking at all the solid colored fabrics at Thousands of Bolts,  and picking out some I would like to have.  I had to go down in the basement for something.  Knowing that I pick up a half yard of solid colored fabrics every now and then, I thought I would do a quick round up of what I have.  I was pleasantly surprised to see all the ones above.

Now, the trick will be to work up my nerve to work with them.   I am just not sure what I want to do with them.   Do I want to do something in traditional Amish style...I do have a couple yards of black fabric not pictured here.  Or do I want to do something in the modern/art quilt style...some along the lines of these.

My husband doesn't care for modern/art quilts like this, but I like studying them and figuring out how they were sewn together.  I would be happy if I could make myself make something small.

I really should go for some small things...if you walked into my house, you might not even notice that I am a quilter.  I have one small quilt hanging up for show, and I have out a couple or three that we use to snuggle under of an evening..but I have room to hang more if I would get busy.

Beautiful colors. I'd love for you to make one in the Amish Style. Like your hubby, I don't care as much for the modern art types... BUT--anything you do will be gorgeous.
Hugs,
Betsy

I"m impressed with your wide selection of colors. I like the idea of a traditional AMASH design.

I vote for Amish design as well. I love all your colors and with the black a Roman Strip would be super. I saw one on your link and you would have plenty left over for another quilt. I am not a fan of a lot of these modern quilts either.

Lovely shades of colour to play with! I can hardly wait to see what you come up with and see where you decide to hang it. :)

I love your color choices. I don't sew now but I sure loved to when I was younger.

Very pretty colors. I'm sure you'll sit and look at them as the ideas swirl in your head. It works for me to line up my yarn, too, and the ideas just flow. So much fun!
