So, while I'm sad that I wasn't able to participate in the recent Bay Area Shop Hop since I was away on vacation, when I look at my stash I realize it could be worse. I have some beautiful fabric purchased at past shop hops that I haven't used yet.
Today I'm sharing this fun pile of fabric purchased during the 2005 Bay Area Shop Hop. I was inspired by Jan Mullen's beautiful quilt Roman Stripez in her 2001 book Cut-Loose Quilts.
Just looking at my fabric and folding it into cute little rectangles has re-energized my excitement for this project, two quilts using the same 31 fabrics, with unique backing fabrics. Now to find a little time to work on cutting it out.
I'm unsure of my choice of mixing batiks and non-batiks, but I like all the fabrics.
