One of the local shops here does a Saturday Sampler every year. This year one selection was in blues and yellows, which caught my eye. So I decided to make it, and the shop owner suggested if I wanted a larger quilt (which I do) to just use my stash at home to make more of the blocks every month. I thought that was a pretty neat idea, and then thought, okay, I’ll make it totally out of my scrap bin fabrics, continuing in just blue and yellow as the original blocks are.
I have NOT pulled all my blues out of my scrap bin, I’ve barely touched the surface of the blue scraps; but I HAVE pulled every single piece of yellow scrap I have out of the bin. I have more yellow, a bit more, and I have some golds and oranges, that are yardage pieces. My stash is 8 shelves high, each shelf hold 3 stacks; and I have 2 shelves in another unit that hold bolts. Of that, I have one stack that holds yellows, mixed in with the golds. This is after spending an entire year making sure every time I bought fabric I bought either a piece of yellow or gold.
The dictionary defines disparity as inequality, difference, the fact or condition of being unequal. I think I have a little bit of color disparity in my stash!
