Challenging Fabric

Note: If you are in a bee group that decides to do a group quilt, they might decide that one fabric should be in each block to create unity.

In the WannaBee at the Ocean quilt, it was this gorgeous fabric.  Can I just say that I was there for that shopping trip?

Note:  If the bee group decides to shop for the unifying fabric, cancel your plans and go with them.  Even if it means rescheduling the carpet installation, the plumber, and the people who are going to hang the glass shower doors.  It will be less of a headache in the long run.

This has been a public service announcement. 

I showed you my inspiration picture yesterday.

Here are the fabrics I am inspired to use, that I want to use.
Aren't they pretty?
Here is the fabric that the rest of the WannaBees picked without me.  The fabric I have to use.

Do you notice what's missing?  Blue.  White.  Soft.  Dreamy.  Yeah, that.

I'm not making judgements.  Really I'm not.  I wasn't there so I can't complain.  But honestly?  How am I going to make all these play well together?


  1. One word: overdye or paint. OK, that is 3 words. ;-)

  2. LOL! Put a dog in the room and use it as it's collar...hey don't forget that you have a button to add too, our 'surprise' element. Can't wait to see how far you get by Scarlet Threads.

  3. Jen,
    You must have a terrific bee group. They are challenging you, which builds character. That's the line I use on my 17 year son. BTW, I have incorporated the offending fabric in my kitchen. I can't wait for you to see it.


Thanks for joining the conversation!
