Begging Works

In my last blog post, I told you that I was looking for more of this:

Actually, I told you I was begging for someone to help me find it, and it worked!
I got a response back from a reader, Mina, who not only had a little piece of it but also knew where it had come from:  Little Apples by Aneela Hoey for Moda.  From there, I was able to locate a seller on eBay, so I can be sure to get what I need to finish my project.  Which I will be sure to share at some point in the future!  Thank you so much Mina!  

Also on that day, I put up a picture of the pile of bolts that is the basis for the fabrics in the City Sampler blocks that Kristina is making.

This is sort of like a guest post, since Kristina is sharing a little bit about how these colors work for her, in her own words.

 Sometimes color inspiration comes from 
things in front of your face.

Then there are times that you stick to your
 favorite color palette....this one is my favorite.

And sometimes you see a color way in art or other design that absolutely makes your heart sing.

 And sometimes someone else has built a color palette that you just want to employ.

So choosing color doesn't have to be complicated nor intimidating.  Look around you, figure out what pleases you.  Maybe it is a picture, a couch pillow, a piece of fabric, or the clothes hanging in your closet.  Someone else might have already done the work for you, all you need to do is take that inspiration to the store.  And let us help you sort it out!
