Sunday Stash #216 – Mistress Round Elements
I have always liked to have a little bit of everything. People regularly say, “quality over quantity.” To which I have always pondered, why can’t you have both? Just because I demand quality, doesn’t mean I can’t have a bunch of it! Right? That’s basically how I feel about fabric, and it’s especially how I feel about fabric when I buy it in all the colours. Le sigh.
These are three quarters of the Round Elements offered by Art Gallery Fabrics. Upon release, I wasn’t a huge fan because I was still dating Oval Elements, and I thought it would be kind of weird if I started hanging out with their fabric sister too much. Ya know? So I ignored their existence completely. Molli doesn’t have time for a mistress!
But Glitterati, these Round Elements are like siren vixens, I tell you! They have continuously popped up on my fabric journey here there and everywhere. So when my friend Kate offered to go halvsies on half yard cuts, thereby giving us both fat quarters, well, you see what happened. Of course, they appeal to my tone-on-tone tendencies. However, I think Art Gallery could really pump up the volume by eliminating the white, and mixing some other colours in there.
Until then, I’ll still play with these, but I gotta make sure I keep Oval Elements happy too. So much fabric to play with, such little time. And I’ve just realised, if all this is true, I now have a fabric mistress. How did I get here again?
