I have fallen in love with a Dresden plate done by Piece O'Cake in their book Quilts With A Spin, and have been stockpiling fabric for it. I am not generally a floral fabric person. I think it's pretty, but I haven't been able to work it into my last few projects, other than the Broidery Perse in Phebe. I needed that look, not pastel, but soft, and here is what I've accumulated so far:
What do you think? I will add more from my stash, as needed, but this is the new stuff. I think it's really pretty, and feminine. I just remembered some woven plaids, and stripes, that were stowed away out of sight (and out of mind, apparently). So I pulled them out, and discovered these, which add a nice dimension to the softness of the flowers. If memory serves, most of these are by Roberta Horton, and have been in my stash for a very long time.
If you all have any suggestions, I'd like to hear them. I know once I get going on the quilt, some fabrics will be discarded and others added, because that's just how it goes. I never really know what will work, until I see it cut to the proper size and placed on my design wall. I do love the way Piece O'Cake mixes all the geometrics, and florals, and comes up with that fresh look that is their trademark.
