TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT

Anyone who has seen any of my quilts would see that I tend to lean toward "country colors." Mostly browns, greens, golds, etc. But I wanted to make a quilted jacket that was pastel for those early spring days that are still chilly. That's when I decided to go with the "Aunt Grace" fabrics. Well, I just loved them and it was so much fun to work with them I thought I'd make something lite and airy for the living room. Now I have brightened up the area a bit!! I also make a really nice table cloth for the dining room, but I still need to get a picture of that! It's under a big round glass topper and that involves getting the hubby to move it!
So, what I have learned from all of this is that sometimes trying new things is definitely a positive experience!

I love it. Repro fabrics are one of my favorites...next to cat fabrics! LOL! Am happy for you that you "stretched". We all need to do that once in a while & get out of our comfort zones.
Thanks for sharing. My Birthday Giveaway is still going on...so keep commenting and posting about it. Thanks.
