Anyone else like me???

I am such a mix of traditional and modern...

I think I probably just haven't really decided on my *style* yet...
it's ever evolving.

I too am a mix...there are just some many beautiful and fun things to love. I think it is ok to like more than one style!

Poppyprint said...

It's more fun to work with different fabrics than the same all the time, I think. Like you, I'm drawn to the fun, clear colours of the new designers, but the soft palette and soothing patterns of many of the Moda romantics also appeal!

Rafael's Mum said...

Me too! you can be both you know! Oh... sigh... I saw the fig tree layercake too... but got the hunky dory jellyroll as I needed that for a friend's quilt. Love all fig tree though!

Who said you have to be pigeon holed?

Eclectic is best!

Staci said...

Oh, me, too! I love beautiful quilts and fabrics so much, both traditional and modern. It is good though, isn't it? I mean, would you want to only eat one kind of food, or listen to one kind of music or read only one kind of book? We need to rejoice that we can have so many interests in so many varied things! And as quilters, we can make the world a little more beautiful, one block at a time!

Leah said...

Me too. I don't think it is bad to like them all unless you have to decide what fabric to order for a quilt that is when it gets hard.

AllieKatMom said...

I havent really seen the fig tree one but I dont think I would buy it. I do like the bliss though :)

Cara said...

I'm all over the place too. But I'm like that with music too, there isn't all that many genres I can't enjoy at some point.

LindaFaye said...

i am so glad you don't fit in a box or category. does anyone??
if there's any category i fit in, it's the free category. :)

Kerry said...

I'm there! Multiple fabric personalities

Trisha said...

That is totally me! I like modern, I like traditional. I can't make up my mind and I don't want to.

I just bought some Katie Jump Rope fabric at The Quilted Castle but some of the ones in your stack they didn't have anymore. You must have got there me before me. :)

Marie said...

Staying with one can be beautiful but boring. I like to mix things up - guess I'll never make a hit with anyone designer.

shelia said...

yup! all about my mood when i wake up :)

Barbara said...

Our taste in fabrics can be just as eclectic as our taste in music. Who says we only have to like one style.

paulette said...

Does it matter? As long as you love the fabric and the quilts that's all that matters!! Love them all!!

KarrieLyne said...

Um, I'll take one of each please :)

Sarah Craig said...

It's called eclectic, Tracey! It means you can like anything you dang well please!!! (And it means there's so much more fabric you can add to your stash than someone who pigeonholes themself..... which means ..... Shopping!!)

Embrace your eclecticism! I kind of like Kerry who called it Multiple Fabric Personalities (MFP)!!

Amy said...

I'm exactly like that. But I love the variety. I think we'd get bored if all of our projects were too similar in style.

SheilaC said...

And who says we can't have both!!? :)

Doesn't everyone always say "Mix the old (traditional) with the new!" I love them all too. Sometimes I'm in the mood for one and sometimes for the other, and when I can mix them both together I will totally do it. I have no shame with mixing lines and designers and generations at random. (And by random I still mean aesthetically pleasing. To me.)

Marcia said...

Who says you have to have a style...it's more like a mood. Enjoy it all!

Julie said...

Those are both so beautiful! I have trouble finding fabrics I want to buy because I LOVE everything! You have to change it up a bit or else we might get bored and everything would look the same. hee!

Stormy Days said...

I think that is your style. It's mine. I love to use bright, bright, bright. Then I need a little pastel. It's all beautiful and different quilts need different prints and colors.

Julie (forestpoppy) said...

I think I'm definitely far more modern. I guess it makes life easier to be one or the other! Juliex

Kelli said...

I think thats the good thing about this love of ours. We can like and make whatever we want.

Christine said...

I am the very same way! I love a broad spectrum of fabrics, quilts and different types of patterns. I don't think it says anything about my style but my interest in exploring all the possibilities :-)
Part of the fun for me is trying something new and different. Why box yourself in? Just play and have fun!

jaybird said...
