I intended to have a shop update today with a new Stash Pack but I was not happy with 2 of the fabrics so we'll have to wait a week to see that. Meanwhile, I need to make a wedding gift quilt.
The son of a friend is getting married in June. I haven't actually met the bride so I went to her registry to see what kind of colors she selected. Well, as is the custom right now, everything is GRAY! I do mean everything. There isn't one drop of color in anything she picked. I think gray is going to become the avocado green of the 2030's.
The groom is a big hunter so I purchased this camo fabric for the backing. It has a little bit of purple in it so I took that as license to add a bit of color to the top. I'm going to make the Antelope Canyon quilt again. It was easy and pretty fast so I should be able to get this one made in a few weeks. Last week I got a start by dyeing the fabrics. I will not use all of these shades but I decided to go ahead and dye 8 shades of each so that I can lay them out together and pick which to use.
I think it's going to be very pretty and should make a nice sofa quilt.
