Oh dear, more Prairie Paisley. I don't know what it is about this fabric, but I I love it. After looking at what I have and what I want to do with it, I decided I needed more of the red. And, as the line is fast disappearing, I thought I probably wouldn't be able to do without the ticking stripe and the large print. I want the ticking for the binding, and I want to fussy cut that big print somehow.
I've never fallen this way for a fabric line before--mostly I just browse the fat quarter bins. I seldom even buy yardage, except for borders or backings. Enough is enough, though. This quilt has grown from a little wall hanging to bed size quilt. I seriously need to get out my graph paper and make some definite plans while I'm still fired up about it.
The weather here has turned warmer in the last few days. The forsythia popped out sometime this week and I've noticed daffodils are beginning to bloom here and there. Spring has sprung!
