Love...Mamie

I've got two projects on the counter in my sewing room--- Borders that just need completing.  But I'm doing this....Love...Mamie .

Here are my fabrics....
If they seem too dark I figure I can lighten it up some with the solid border pieces.  I may have to give up sleep to piece this together---But I've decided that's what I'll do without.... It's going to be fun.

I think the colors work for me...It's the right balance of Moda, Jo Morton, and Thimbleberries.  30's  prints would be tough--as I don't have any.  A cute little modern red and aqua piece would work, but it would just sit on the shelf as my home has none of those colors.  So my quilt will be the Northwoods version of --Love...Mamie.


Life's been crazy--- My father has been real sick. Gardens, flowers, kids, pups....I'll post more later-- But I just wanted to commit to this project....

I am working on the same pattern in patriotic colors. Fabrics from stash. Your fabrics choices will work well.

It's going to be great Melanie. I love your fabrics. So glad to see you post. I was going to email you.

I am sorry to hear about your father being sick. I will surely be praying for him.

Enjoy your summer.

No such thing as 'too dark' in my book. Your choices look just right and don't let anyone tell you different *s*
I hope your dad is on the mend. I will keep him (and you) in my thoughts.
