What is a Daiwabo Taupe? (You can read all about it by clicking...) A lot of people don't "get it" but it "got me!"
Judy at Quilting with Ragdolls posted about her Pinwheels Taupe BOM quilt. I also purchased some of these taupes. I saw them and liked them, but did not get much. I saw them again & really liked them so I got more - enough for at least a twin sized quilt. And then I saw the star fabric (that you can see in these fat 1/8th packs in different colors & now that I looked again you can see them here better...) & I went nuts! I bought at least 1 yard of each of the stars and closer to 4 of several of them. (I also got some 1/4 yard cuts at the tiny quilt shop in NYC.)
I plan to use these to make a traditional churn dash quilt. Like this one only scrappy! OOPS I meant Card Tricks. :o)
With the leftovers, I plan to make a quilt that is in the current "Quilt It" a special publication by QNM that is a 9 patch with dresden plates that look like asters.
I also think that they would look great in this quilt that Laurie Ann at Quilting Rush posted about back in June that she saw on a shop hop pink and brown quilt . This quilt sang to me immediatetly! And I think taupe fabrics would look great in a tumbler quilt like the one that Dawn at Quilts and Pieces shared.
I need to finish a few UFO's first, but I am SOOOOO ready to work with my taupes.
