Fabulous as the online stores are, I really like shopping for my fabric in person where I can see and feel it for myself, but *sigh*, most of the quilt shops near me are pretty traditional in their fabric buying.
Still, I periodically check the local shops, hoping I’ll find a little bit of modern tucked among the traditional.
I got to one yesterday, just as it started to pour so I had plenty of time to browse while I waited for the rain to let up. A few bolts of Kona (including my favorite dark blue “Marine”), a Michael Miller stripe, a random fat quarter and alot of yellow later…
I just did a series of yellow-orange quilts, and I think my subconscious wants to do more, because I wasn’t looking for yellow, but this is what I kept picking up.
Either that or my subconscious just wanted the sun to come out. *shrug*
