Out of My Comfort Zone - Kate Spain Terrain

Well this is really out of my normal comfort zone...but lately I've been finding myself drawn to these bright loud modern colors.  In the past I have stuck towards more traditional prints, primitive/country or a little vintage.  But this line is just so pretty!  I have been doing well with the totes, I just sold another yesterday, woohoo!  But I thought that I needed to make one for myself, so I started this last night.  The fabric is my favorite prints from a charm pack of Kate Spain's Terrain that I purchased at Cottonpicker's Quilt Shop in Chardon, Ohio.  Isn't it pretty?  I am going back as soon as I get paid for more.  I ordered some thread from Connecting Threads (the sale on spools ends tomorrow!) to match, and some to go with my circular geese compass quilt, so just waiting for that to come in so I can quilt it.  I can't wait to carry this loud little tote around!  Lol*

I am too. I used to hate brights and solids. I kinda am liking them now ;)

Ha! I 'went' through the same thing too... I have drawers of prim fabrics patiently waiting for me to come back to them, yet I keep choosing the brights and retros lately. It's so weird. Making that little bag for my mil last week felt good... it had been a long time since I sewed with some dark prints. But I'm having fun with it all and really enjoying my sewing time. Love your totes... and especially your jelly roll one. Keep 'em coming!
