And now, for the rest of the story...
My personal tastes are primitive with some colonial and "country" thrown in.
When it comes to quilts, my go to fabrics are Civil War, reproduction and country.
I love scrappy quilts and the homey feeling they exude. When it comes to decorating, my tastes are also very eclectic, or scrappy. I am definitely not a "matchy-matchy" or "froo froo" kinda gal. I like to mix different styles, eras, antiques, reproductions and new and old. If you like it, they'll all blend together. Really!
So you're probably asking yourself, "Where the heck is she going with this? Like, get to the point already!"
Remember I received two packages the other day and held off telling or showing you what was inside?
Just wait till you see what I got!
Sooooooo out of the box for me!!!
A bucket full of Kaffe Fassett fabrics!!!
Can you believe it???
Now if there's anything further from CW or reproduction fabrics than Kaffe's, I'd like to see them!
I needed and wanted to try something new and although they are soooooo not my style, I've always been very attracted to them. Perhaps it's my artist background with the giant splashes of color and design elements.
I'm not 100% certain what I'm going to make with them but I did purchase this school house dye for my GO cutter last week and I'm thinking of making a Kaffe-scrappy school house quilt.
Wouldn't that look sooooooo cool?
One thing for sure, they certainly brighten up my sewing studio!
