In moments of distraction, I often play the mental game of “what if you could only have…”. An example is “What if you could only ever eat food from one region?” I would pick Mexican. Or Italian. Luckily, not a real eventuality but it is entertaining to think about.
Living in a country and class full of options, it is a luxury of the imagination. As frivolous as it is, I appreciate you allowing me to indulge.
If I could only buy one brand of shoes… David Tate.
If I could only listen to music from one band/musician… Wilco. And Cake. And Diana Krall.
If I could only wear one brand of clothes… Eileen Fisher. (there is endless money in my thought exercises)
If I could only drink one type of beverage. Peppermint tea.
This is as far as I have gotten in this exercise, except for one more thing…
40×40 baby boy quilt, using V & Co Ombre grey, navy, taupe. Sunny Skies block pattern from Missouri Star.
Backing fabric is Message in a Bottle by Hawthorne Threads.
What if I could only use fabric from one line of quilting fabric (GASP !! The horror)?
It would DEFINITELY be Ombre from V & Co. No question. I perpetually have a low-level fear that I will run out and not be able to buy more. But I can’t buy all of the ombre. That would be crazy.
I have completed one baby boy quilt using ombre. I am working on a second baby boy quilt that might be my favorite baby quilt I have ever made. I paired it with Kona medium gray.
The pattern is a simplified version of a pattern from Wanderlust Quilts. I made the pattern without inset seams, which makes it slightly less striking – but it still is the bomb diggity.
I hope to finish this weekend. And then I am going to work on a quilt for myself that uses the ombre. So that I will always have some around me.
