Case in point. I have had this jelly roll of Amy Butler fabric staring me down for way too long. While I love the coral warmth of the roll, it really isn't me. It no longer was rolled with the edges fraying, it just was time.
I set out with absolutely no plan. It sure doesn't help the creative energy! Eventually I decided I may as well try a Herringbone design. Nothing to lose but space on the shelf, right?!
With my pile ready to go, I started piecing some panels. I knew I wouldn't have enough strips to make an entire herringbone quilt, so I had to improvise.
This was the beginning. Just a thought, a not so thought out plan. I knew full well this would be the case and was fully prepared for it.
For the most part this is where I am at right now. Interesting. Different. Perhaps a little 'out there'.

I think what I should do is destash some fabric. Somewhere, somehow. When I first started quilting I had not one ounce of taste! Not one pinch of style! I was like a kid in a candy shop buying fabric...especially if it was on sale! I am pleased to say those days are gone! Just not the fabric!
Which brings me to a delicious stack of freshly ironed Kaffe Fasset woven stripes. I cannot wait to dig into this!
This is more like it, more like me! Throw in a stack of solids with this and viola! I'm in heaven!
