The need to save money and the desire to use up fabric that has just been collecting dust in my stash has meant very little new fabric is finding its way home to me. But I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to save 40% off a couple solid fabrics I needed serious yardage of to finish some in progress quilts.
The blue is Kona Cotton Azure (I love this shade of blue, it’s almost Tiffany Blue) and the yellow is Curry. I’m pairing them with two of the colorways from Joel Dewberry’s Modern Meadow Collection. The Azure will be the background fabric on one side and the Curry will be the background fabric on the other. I think they both go well with the prints but contrast nicely with each other giving a different feel to each side of the quilt. I have to admit Curry is outside my comfort zone, originally I was going to purchase an olive green, but I let my husband decide between the two and he preferred Curry. I figure if i don’t like it that side will be the “back.” But having seen it I’m pretty excited to see how it all comes together, hopefully going with an unusual choice will pay off!
