Yay - I've finally picked my fabrics. I'm going with a cottage-y-plaid-shabby-chic-homespun-modern-country-bumpkin sort of look...with snowflakes. Fingers crossed I've chosen the right ones! It should look cozy and fit in to the decor of the tiny cottage we live in. I had another pile from my stash that I contemplated using - it was all greens and reds and graphic prints but I like these snowflakes. And the plaids. I almost went with some Brrr too - but I kept coming back to those two red plaids! These are some of 'My Precious' fabrics. I've been saving the plaids since 2009/2010 to make another shaggy quilt but I doubt this will ever happen so I would love to use them now. Those snowflakes have been around for a long time too, just waiting for the perfect project!
They are for a Christmas quilt I will be making with the Vintage Holiday Quilt Along over on Fabric Mutt's blog starting the 6th of August. Aneela Hoey made a Vintage Holiday quilt (and it is gorgeous) using her own Cherry Christmas fabrics so I hope I can do Camille Roskelley's [click here to buy the pattern] pattern justice in the fabrics I've chosen!
I can't wait to start! Lots of people have posted their fabric selections on Flickr already - and some have even started cutting and sewing! Yikes - I better get my skates on!
