picking fabric

It will soon be my grandson’s first birthday and I have a quilt to make!  I had some ideas running around in my head and finally figured out what to do. It obviously had to have ‘farm stuff’ in it, so I looked on Pinterest and in my quilt books and came up with a plan and pattern on my Electric Quilt.  I love this software.  It allows me to be creative and then see the project before I even start.  It also helps me when buying fabric, I usually buy way too much just to make sure I have enough.

I recently made a trip to the Portland area and made a stop at Fabric Depot.  This store can be overwhelming and very costly.  It is huge and has fabric of all types,  on this day I was focused on one quilt and I had success.

I just love these tractors.  The fabric line is Apple Hill Farm  from RJR Fabrics.  Don’t you just love the fences in green and red.  I added  other fabrics that blended well and I think I did pretty good at picking fabric on this trip to Portland.   So this is it, the fabric for my grandson’s quilt!  Now I need to get started.

    Am waiting to see pics of the results. I celebrate all my friends who are artists in fabrics.
