I have spent some time with pretty cottons though. My DAUGHTER and I went to Mesquite Bean Fabrics, San Antonio's newest quilt shop, and did a little shopping. Mesquite Bean opened just a few months ago and quickly became one of my favorite shops!
For some reason I've been a bit obsessed with Log Cabin Quilts lately, and decided it was time to actually make one. I decided to go with all solids and chose these lovelies from Art Gallery. The Art Gallery solids have such a lovely hand and come in such beautiful saturated colors. When I left the house I was thinking Summer Garden for color inspiration, but when DAUGHTER and I started stacking up bolts in the shop I ended up with this. It looks more like a Sunset, don't you think?
The Sunset solids will be paired with this pretty creamy white. Still waffling over what to use as the center square. Another solid? A print? What color? So many choices! I'm going to give this Log Cabin Creative Grids Ruler a try as I begin this new quilting adventure.
Cut, Sew, Press, Repeat--what a joyful thing to do!
