Fabric Auditions


While I love the look of a fabric collection all by itself, I also love mixing prints together. It's the genius that I adore in projects by bloggers like Ayumi and Amy -- who incidentally had a brilliant post on just this topic recently. I agree with her that the most important factor in all of this is simply practice, so I've decided to add in a weekly post called Fabric Auditions. I'll pull a stack of fabrics from my stash and give it a name. That's it -- nothing fancy. Some of these may end up in a project, most probably won't, but it's the practice that counts.


This one is called "Pineapple Upside Down Cake." I love those Geekly Chic glasses and the Comma prints. Black and white fabrics are really growing on me lately.


This is going to be fun.

  9. Oh I love black and white prints! And dark grey! Anything but red, really. Can you believe I have NO RED in my collection at all.
    I love the name, that is inventive! And Ayumi....well, she is the queen, in my opinion, of all things mxie and matchie
