Have you read about the quilt along that Katy is hosting? Never one to want to pass up the chance for some quilting fun with friends, I've joined in. ;o)
I've purchased the PDF version of her pattern and have started auditioning fabrics.
This pattern works beautifully for layer cakes, but I've decided to use some treasured charms that a sweet friend gave me.
As if that isn't enough colour, I've also selected a yellow text fabric for the background. You may laugh, but I am feeling pretty excited and a wee bit nervous about this first foray into using text fabrics on such a large scale. Fingers are crossed and deep breaths are being taken. ;o)
Besides those charms, some 10" squares are needed for the blocks, so I'm pulling colour.... and more colour from my stash to fulfill that fabric requirement.
Whew. Seems pretty adventurous using so many bright choices. LOL
I'm still auditioning, so not sure which of these will make the final cut. I wonder how long I will hold out before the cutting begins. ;o) I can't wait to get started!
If you want to join in, and make a lovely quilt along with us,
hop on over to Katy's blog for all the details.
Oh, I have happy news! It seems I got lucky with my guess - I now have a sweet, beautiful baby niece, so my Cherry Blossoms Baby Quilt
only needs a quilt label before I send it off to her (something similar to the label I made for this quilt for her sister).
