I just realized today that when I went to the fabric store yesterday, I was drawn to the brightest and boldest colors I could find. I wanted colors that POPPED when I looked at them. I wanted this because I wanted to put them on a quilt with a black background. I don't mean neon or some of those strange prints that I never understand. I mean Color! I feel like so many of the fabrics I am seeing are muted. I want Zing! Not gaudy...but bright. I want Spring with none of the pastels. Oh....if I were a fabric designer, I would go up to Skagit County - to the Tulip Festival....and I would take pictures of all of those colors. That would be my line. Tulips in Spring.
