When I look at fabrics, I am drawn to the BOLD.

Oh my word, the pinks dance there. That is a BIG look. But I do love it.
These are the kinds of fabrics I bring home.
When I look at quilts, here are the ones that I like.

Do you see the issue? It’s all bold all day, but the quilts I like have minimal pattern in them and the fabrics I like are ALL pattern.
I will have to get (much) better at designing, to be able to go into the store and buy solids (beautiful solids) then create works that make me happy using the solids.
What do you have in your stash? Does it match what you sew with?
