Challenge accepted!

Judy at Sunshine Quilts has offered us a Stashbusting Challenge, and I wholeheartedly accept! She has challenged us to choose our favourite piece of fabric, you know, the one you don't want to cut up, and rather than continue to gaze at it, use it!

This is my favourite piece of fabric (well, it's actually my favourite pack of fabrics). My wonderful friend Linda gave it to me when I visited in 2000, and I have been so reluctant to cut it up. I justified this by saying it would have to be a very special project to tempt me to cut into this fabric. Well, I'm going to start that special project for this challenge. I'm strong today about the challenge, I hope I continue to be as strong when it's time to wield the rotary cutter.

I have the day to myself today, and there are three different things I'd like to work on. I have a new scrap block I'd like to try, and there are two new quilts I'd like to start ... I wonder which one will pull me in first. Hopefully you'll see the results soon enough!

I can see it now - determined face, teeth clenched, white knuckles on the rotary cutter - you can do it, you can do it! (lovely fabrics by the way).

Oh my goodness, Tazzie, I remember that fabric. I have a friend who used it for backing on a quilt. I can't wait to see what you do with it!

Beautiful fabric, I also can't wait to see what you do with it. Sending strength your way for cutting...

This fabric looks like perfect 'stack and whack' material to me. Do you have enough for this technique?

Karen said...

Ooh, pretty pretty fabric, Tazzie, it will be gorgeous in a quilt.

I can see why you would find it hard to cut into that fabric. It would make a great centre for a medallion quilt.

What a beautiful piece of fabric...I'd be very attached to it also. I'm cheering you on! Can't wait to see what it becomes.

Gorgeous fabric. Great idea for a challenge too. Can't wait to see what you do with that piece of fabric.

Pam said...

That is quite interesting fabric. I can see it would need a very specific project and some thought. I am looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

Dawn said...

Can't wait to see what you do with it!

Ohh, love how the colors all go so well together in these - and can't wait to see what it becomes!

Oh, my... that fabric is gorgeous. Are you SURE you want to cut into it? (Sorry, I'm no help, am I?).
