I just love having my fabric in a cabinet where I can see everything I have. It makes it so much fun and easier to pull fabrics for a project instead of digging through bags that are scattered everywhere.
I thought I had this little quilt all figured out, but when I pulled the fabric for each part of the quilt, I decided I didn't like the red fabric for the bird. It was too dark and didn't stand out enough with the brown fabric for the tree or the green for the leaves. But the bright orange fabric just popped and tied all the other colors together.
I've never done a project like this so I'm learning as I go. For instance, I should have read the fine print on the fabric adhesive. If I had, I would have realized it isn't meant for sewing. Thankfully I didn't adhere anything to the blue fabric, but I did use it on the bird. And I got the sticky stuff all over the ironing board cover and it won't come off. Even after washing, it's still sticky. So, after getting a sewing friendly adhesive and new cover, I'm ready to start again.
Have you tried anything new lately?

120. spring...I know I said that before but I am truly thankful for the new life sprouting and unfurling all around me. I'll probably say it again!
