I am making slow and steady progress on Congruence, but when I only had a few minutes one afternoon last week, I let myself have a bit of play time to create a fabric pull for my next project.
The bottom shelf of my stash has solids that I have in large enough yardages to use for quilt backings. This particular stack with the pink, salmon, and yellows has really been calling my name and asking me to make something. I don’t want to cut from this large yardage that I’m saving for quilt backings, though.
So I went through my stash to find near matches of the colors in lesser yardages. I pulled two salmon colors from the 1 yard cuts of every Kona Cotton that I received last year, but all of the rest of these solids (which vary between Cotton Couture to Kona Cotton to FreeSpirit Designer Solids) came from my stash (scrap??) bins.
I’m happy with the fabric pull, which I’ve named Sunrise Sherbet, and I’m also happy to set these on my shelf to wait to be cut into once I finish Convergence. Since I plan to make an improv quilt with this fabric pull, setting them aside gives me time to come up with the “rules” I want to use for the improv piecing. Skinny inset strips seem to be calling to me the most right now, but we’ll see what actually happens when I start cutting and sewing.
