Just when I thought I’d spend the rest of my quilting days creating Kona cotton mini quilts and table runners….
I decided to take a little detour yesterday and break into that other stash… the one full of luscious, soft, richly colored shot cottons. You all know I LOVE my Konas, but there’s something extra special about shot cottons. The dimension of their hues, their softness and slightly visible weave. They’re like the amazing bottle of Clase Azul tequila that a friend gave me months ago– almost too beautiful to use. Almost.
I used to go through phases of reading every book by a single author– my Dostoevsky phase was rather dramatic, as you can imagine. And I seem to do something similar with my quilts. Now that I’ve dived back into my shot cottons, I think I’ll swim around for a while. And with their softness, these fabrics seem especially well-suited to baby quilts.
Meanwhile, Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner. What better excuse to whip out the fancy tequila…
