So, I’m realizing that there’s something about me and black in quilts. Even when I do baby quilts – they tend to have a little black in them (or a lot). It’s not intentional. I guess that’s just what I’m drawn to. Especially when it is paired with bright rich contrasting colors. Ooooh! So, I guess that it should be no surprise that as soon as I saw this amazing new line Flora & Fauna from Patty Young (Michael Miller) I knew I had to have it. At the Fat Quarter Shop they say that it should be available in December. Well, it’s December! OK. OK. I’ll stop being impatient. But, I just can’t wait until it comes out. I don’t even know what I’ll do with it yet but, I love everything about it. I know I’ll get at least the Stone palette. But, the others look yummy as well.
Just look at the Mustard. . . Oh, and the Raspberry with the green. . . even the turquoise is wonderful and delicious! I guess I’ll have to wait. . .
I also visited Patty’s blog MODKID Boutique and found the most wonderful items made from her fabric line. She has some adorable pattens for girl clothes but, if you have a second, take a look at the doll clothes patterns that she has for American Girl dolls. I’m not really into doll clothes but, her patterns are SOOOOOOO cute – they make me want to make some!
Oh well, enough cuteness for one day. I guess since I have to wait on these anyway, I’ll just have to be resigned to dream about what quilt I’ll design out of these. . .
