It really wasn't my fault - I Swear!!
I was just standing there, at the cutting table of my most favorite quilt shop in the Universe - Lolly's Fabrics in Shipshewana, Indiana - minding my own business.
I was catching up with Kris, the manager, while admiring all the fabulous fabric all around us.
This is a busy shop, so Kris had to help other customers and that's when my attention wandered a bit ... right over to the In the Beginning Fabrics Modern Solids 2 collection by Jason Yenter. The colors are just so yummy in this shot cotton collection!
To distract myself, I turned away...right to face the Kafe Fasset woven display. ACK!! Sensory Overload! So I turned away...back to facing the Modern Solids. ACK!!
Then it hit me - I glanced at the solids, then the wovens, the solids, the wovens and back and forth like a spectator at a tennis match. These were a potential match made in quilter's heaven. There was one woven, in particular, that spoke to me so I reached out, grabbed it and carried it over to see close up if the colors really matched the solids or was I just being sucked in by pretty fabrics, again.
One of the neatest features of that particular spot in the shop is the overhead prism reflecting natural skylight thingy.
I borrowed this picture from their website and you can see the huge square thing on the ceiling that lets in natural diffused and reflected light - right over the cutting table - so you can really judge the colors correctly!
At this point, I was gone. The bolts of fabric jumped off the shelves to the cutting table and came home with me.
You be the judge - here they are hanging out on the clothes line, drying in 35 degree temp.
