I had a very productive evening! I decided yesterday that I would make the black KFC fabrics top next. And tonight I got my fabrics all prepped and cut and this quilt is all up on the design wall.
I’m having a hard time calling this a “black” quilt. There’s just so much vibrant color in all those fabrics.
I still have some tweaking to do before I start sewing these blocks together. And, once again, I’m not sure I’m going to leave the large blue jumble blocks in the quilt. They really stand out to me. I have plenty of fabric left over to cut a couple more squares. I’ll give this a little thought, but looking at this photo… they will probably come out.
The pattern is by Sweet Jane and is called Flowers in the Garden. I purchased the pattern at a quilt store a few years ago, but it’s available on Etsy here.
Here’s a few more close up views of this gorgeous selection of fabrics.
There’s something very satisfying to me about the left over shreds of scraps from cutting out the pieces for a quilt.
Next step is to give it a really good look on the design wall, call it done and start sewing. The blocks are big — there are only 30 blocks in this quilt.
