After three weeks of figuring out the numbering, math, identifying fabrics……,
For those of you who would like a fabric color guide and to forage for your own fabric discoveries and choices, here is your fabric swatch guide for the Val’s Rhododendron block. Just click on the image and it will take you to the two page PDF.
This block was particularly difficult to untangle and organize for kitting. There are many fabrics and it took days to identify them. I eventually gave up on two of them because my eyes just could not take it anymore and I knew it was time to give up for the time being.
When I spend whole days just scanning the internet to identify a fabric, I wonder how so many can spend endless time on Facebook and other social media stops. It truly is hard to keep my gray cells stimulated for hours on end watching images pass by until I see what I am searching for.
I am cutting, cutting, cutting and in the beginning phases of packaging up the kits. As soon as the Val’s Rhododendron kits are completed and listed (hopefully by the end of this week?), I will then be cutting more of the other block kits that are still available.
I will be discontinuing more since I could spend 365 days a year and all of my time just cutting kits. I do have other blocks to create, as well as my own projects, and I need some of that precious time to stitch them with.
I also know that some of you are patently waiting for something a little more stimulating to read than kit and pattern news.
Houston Festival is coming up fast and I am looking forward to some quality down time to play. I really enjoy meeting up at the quilting center of the world with my friends and associates from all corners of the globe.
Now, back to packaging up the kits.
