So, now that Trace is all quilted and on my kitchen counter, what could I do, but start another Little Bites. The one I selected to make is Whit (by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.), and I chose the design that features the Dutchman's Puzzle blocks. I happened to have on hand (due to my recent chardonnay fueled shopping frenzy) a charm pack of Vintage Happy, so that is what I chose to use. Coincidentally, the same fabric collection featured on the pattern cover. If it ain't broke, why fix it?
I have plenty of whites in my stash, but the Vintage Happy collection called for a REALLY white white. What do you all use when you need a stark white? Seriously, I have everything from creamy whites, taupey whites, yellowish whites, you name it whites, but I thought I was up the creek without a paddle for a chalk white. I did discover enough of a remnant in a stash box out in the garage, but honestly that was it for me as far as white whites goes. I need to order something to have on hand for this type of fabric emergency, so any recommendations are much appreciated.
Hope you all had a smashing weekend. Here is Trace, on the table, crappy quilting and all. I have discovered that crappy quilting looks a lot better once the project is laundered, so I guess that is next.
