Pretty Fabric Day

Red Letter Day fat quarter bundle
It's always good to learn new things about yourself. I've recently realized that I have some weird thing for bird prints. i can honestly say i'm not a birdwatcher, nor do i have any particular affinity for birdlike things in real life, but give me some birds printed on cotton and i go nuts.

naturally, this led me to purchase a fat quarter bundle of the entire line of Red Letter Day by Elizabeth House on etsy.

to be honest, not all the colors are really my thing. i love teals and pinks, but the lime greens and oranges aren't my favorites. i think they'll be ok if used sparingly.

my new house needs a quilt for the living room, so i am planning to make the mod sampler quilt from oh fransson. i'm still waiting for a few more fabrics to arrive at my door before i can get started.

and just because i can, tilt-a-color.

  2. You're one crafty lady! I, too, seem to have a weird bird preference. I was just thinking about that the other day I was pawing through some novelty jewelry and noticed that everything I liked had birds on it.

  6. Ooh, I didn't realize that collection was made of such vivid colors. I'm the same way with bird fabric. I'm actually scared of/creeped out by real birds somewhat, yet I love them as art. I must admit I'm a bit confused by Red Letter Day. What do ducks have to do with award ribbons?

  7. Happy colorful fabric! Is that a pig print on the bottom? I bet it is, and I bet they're cute!

  8. Whoohoo! that fabric will make an awesome Mod Sampler quilt! Can't wait to see it. I still have no idea what I'm going to make with mine. Definitely a quilt, just don't know what pattern.
