Having never made from a quilting pattern before this was an excercise in following instructions. Not my strong suit. Even with a clothing pattern I tend to , shall we say, venture off the beaten track? Cant help it-its my background.
I have been diligently measuring, cutting, lining up and sewing these enormous blocks and they are making me so happy. Really. Its ridiculous. They're also making me terribly happy because making these means I am not working on the school sesqui quilt.
Thats called denial.
Denial can be a beautiful thing.
You get swoon blocks.
The background is Robert Kaufman quilters linen in grey. Can not tell you how much I love this. Its gorgeous. I knew I wanted grey rather than white but I also didnt want a flat grey. This linen look is perfect.
The fabrics are a mish mash as commitment gives me the heaby jeabies. I cannot be faithful to a range.
I have mixed Anna Maria Horner with Kaffe Fasset and Sarah Fielke, then there is Amy Butler, Heather Bailey and some randoms picked up from Calico and Ivy in the pile waiting.
