Sanabel Short Line

So remember that Sanibel fat quarter bundle I picked up in Paducah? I think I've found the perfect use for it, already.  This bundle is gathering no dust.



Sanibel is by Gina Martin for Moda.  I was drawn to the colors of this collection of fabric.  You know how with some fabric, it's all about the prints, the designs, and the colors?  And how you sometimes don't want to cut up those designs?  For me, Sanibel is all about the colors, and while the designs are nice, I want to cut them all up so the focus stays on the color.


To accomplish this I'm using the Miss Rosie's Quilt Co pattern Short Line.  There are two versions, one that uses 2 1/2 inch strips and one that uses 1 1/2 inch strips, I'm going with the 1 1/2 inch strip option that only requires 436 strips, if you're using fat quarters, which I am.



My friend Nicole, at Sisters Choice, made both the quilts that you see on this pattern.   They've been on my To Do list for years.  I'm so glad I waited for what I think is the perfect fabric.

  6. This looks like it is going to be a lot of fun. What color are you going to use for the contrast fabric? Solid or "low volume" print?
