I wanted to share a little colour with you tonight.
This is a selection of Vicki's hand-dyed gradient fabric which arrived from her Etsy store today. Aren't they just stunning?! This photo shows a 4-5in wide selvage-to-selvage strip of each fabric. I'm tempted to use a bit of each of them in a quilt just like this!

The other colour is this range of real-thread charts I bought a little while ago. Because I buy so much of my thread online, these are invaluable in helping me to pick the right colours. I have quite a collection of these now, and they're beautiful as well as useful. I buy most of my thread, including this lot, from Red Rock Threads. I want to say a special thank-you to them. They have a enormous range of my favourite threads (including Superior and Aurifil) the best prices I've found, and when one of the parcels from a recent order disappeared in the postal system, they promptly resent it - impressive customer service!

I think I need to have you do my Etsy photos! I can't wait to see what you do with them!

Thats am impressive lot of thread cards...I need to take a note of where you go to for them...though I am busy for a while with what I have. The fabrics you posted are beautiful - have you sewn them together - or just showing them...silly question I know. I have one more sip of wine to go and then I will do more sewing :) I think?
