“Rhapsody in Blue” quilt top finished and layers almost all pinned into place….yippee! 🎉
I’m sorting through some mixed fabric emotions. I can say now that I wish the lightest blue blocks, which are in reality more of a blue purple-ish gray, were a brighter truer blue. There is also some troubling puffiness with this fabric, most likely due to its inexpensive nature (my polite way of saying cheap!). Oh well! 🤪
My fabric mixture includes Kona, Timeless Treasures, and assorted chain store brands. Do you ever say a word so many time, it starts to sound weird (e.g. mixture)? 🤔
Alas, it is one of those “I’ll be happy to be done” projects so I can move on. It’s not you Quilt, it’s me. 😉 It will be a nice change for the color scene in the bedroom, though the relationship may not last until summer!
Do you mix fabric quality in one project? I do a lot. Mainly with small projects like table runners and mug rugs. That’s never bugged me, but thinking ahead to my next full size quilt it may. I can’t always justify expanding my fabric budget so I compromise with half and half. But I’m thinking maybe I should try a different tack.
Thank you so much for your support, suggestions and comments.
