Bella Solids Parade - Expert's Picks day 5 (betty pink)

Another dirty little love of mine today.

The colour of the day is Betty Pink (120)

I chose a kona solid in ash as well as bella solids hershey (41) and fig tree cream. The prints are more of my secret loves. I'm always drawn to Robyn Pandolph and Fig Tree Quilts prints. I love the subtle colours, the softness, the classic looks. I bet you're learning stuff about me you didn't know, aren't you?!  My taste in fabric is pretty eclectic. There's not much I don't like, if I'm quite honest. Everything has it's use and place. I see fabrics like these as perfect gift quilts for people that don't quilt. They're classic, they're pretty safe, and they always make beautiful quilts.

Prints are dowood house woven green gingham by Robyn Pandolph, Bellagio Road Rosy pink ornate flowers (RJR fabrics) and Scarborough Fair sky tiny rose buds (Fig Tree Quilts)

totally agree - and to the Fig Tree and Pandolph I would add Minick and Simpson - always works a treat and they just effortlessly fit in with so many different styles and tastes. Like your choices Katie and hope you're over your jetlag

I like lots of different styles of fabric and quilts too but I am surprised that you are drawn to the trad look - thought you were an out and out mod girl. I shouldn't judge the book by the cover, I guess! Sorry!
