And an idea was born. Well, an opportunity was born now I had multiple colour cards. Someone else already had this awesome idea. Check it out... I'll wait for you to come back.
Okay then. I agree with Sheryl, so it took me a long time to put rotary cutter to paper. It just felt so wrong! (Yes, I have a rotary cutter exclusively for paper. It's labeled as such. Don't judge, people.)
I sliced into my pre-2013 card as well as my 2013 insert. For the newer 2014 colours, I opted to collect up actual fabric samples and make my own swatches. I'm still missing ten colours: Ballerina, Bordeaux, Cobblestone, Corsage, Dahlia, Honeysuckle, Latte, Limestone, Morning Glory, and Scone. Pinks & browns. Who would have guessed?
These piles make me so ridiculously happy. If only I could have taken the pic in daylight. Quiet activities, like cutting up colour cards, are perfect for when are sleeping. Must not wake the dragons...
Now I can do fabulous things like this when the need arises. No more trying to fold and position my gigantor colour card to figure out what lovely Kona I've used.
Underwater quilt in case you were wondering!
I'm linking up with Tips & Tutorials Tuesdays @ Late Night Quilter. Today, she's blogging about setting up your sewing room for maximum efficiency. I think this a far more efficient way to use my colour card! So, have you taken the leap and cut up your cards? Are you as ridiculous as I am when it comes to Kona?
P.S. If you answered the second question above with a yes, pop on over to visit Val @ Purple Boots and Pigails. She's could really use your help!
And I will say that "Kona Nerd" is 100% her term. We all know I prefer something with a little more kick. Stay tuned on that front!
