I do not know why I do this to myself, I really don’t. I almost always choose some really difficult to find color when I am starting a new project. For Mimi’s Bloomers it’s that periwinkle blue that’s in the center of Miss Mimi. How was I supposed to know that periwinkle is not the “in” color this year. Argh!!!!
When I was working on the Sri Yantra quilt I needed something like 10 different red violets to make it work. Needless to say, red violet was not in that year. I’m sure all the Colorado quilt shop owners knew me as that crazed lady digging through their fabrics looking for red violet.
Luckily I have been able to dig up a few fabrics that will work. Shop owners…don’t worry.
