A beautiful layer cake of Vintage Verona by Emily Taylor Design for Riley Blake.
Now I don't normally open pre-cuts without a plan to use them right then, but desperate times call for desperate measures :) So I untied the string and laid out all of these gorgeous prints!!! Oh, how they make me smile ;) Look at those beautiful rich Navy's, Reds, and Greens. And oh, that plaid print, eeekkk!
I pulled out my sketch pad and started drafting some ideas. I often find that just looking at fabrics can bring inspiration for designs. And those dots and echoed bead prints got the creative juices flowing. So fun!!! And who doesn't love a great strip?? I just love sketching while ogling over gorgeous fabrics.
And after an hour of playing and petting I really did feel better. I mean, I still felt sick, but I didn't feel down in the dumps sick. Ahh, what a good bit of fabric therapy can't do :)
And I am happy to report that I am starting to feel better in a not so sick kind of way this morning. I am hoping it was just one of those 24 hour things ;) Yippee, not not only can I pet fabric, but hopefully I will have the energy to sew some ;)
Hope you are having a Happy Quilting Day!!!
