Yup! It's a new day!

After all my angst yesterday about choosing fabric in my palette, I received so many helpful comments. So, thanks to all!! I realized that I needed to have more fun with the process! I have been my own victim of fabric collections and haven't done much in the way of combining fabrics on my own!! This will be the perfect opportunity to correct that . This morning I took a better look at all my fabric choices. Surprisingly, I only made a few changes. Definitely dropped the green/black which made a huge difference right away. I also took away the Kaffe Fassett fabric. I love the fabric but when I opened it right up, it had a lot of blue which seemed to really clash. Then I switched up a couple others and came up with my FINAL group of fabrics. I've put them all away until it's time to start cutting and now I can hardly wait to get started. Maybe now I can look a fabric collections in a whole new light!

Yeah, just mix and match. They remind me of Italian icecream flavours!

Very pretty selection. They remind of the popsicles, creamsicles, and revels/fudgsicles we used to eat at the lake when we were kids. Lime was my favourite popsicle.

You made really good choices as you refined your fabric selection. Not only are the colors fantastic, but you have a couple of good darks and lights mixed in. This is going to be gorgeous!

Oh, I better get going. You are all set and done. Looking good! I am very glad you're not using all solids cause I wont be using any solids since I hardly have any and I didn't wanna buy any new fabric ;-)

Your interpretation is wonderful!!! I love your prints, and that you are having fun with it! Can't wait to see where you go with it!

I am solids heavy at the moment and need to stop stressing about finding (or not finding) coordinating prints in my stash ;)
