After work last night I put together four strip sets for this quilt. I had to work this morning doing fundraising on the radio, then took the dogs for a nice long 5 mile walk after that. When we got home I dug in and whipped up the 8 blocks from the sets.
I took my scrappy batik 16-patch blocks off the design wall so I could move these blocks over to get the full width up. The finished quilt top will be 6 blocks wide and 7 blocks high. This is the full width. I have three more rows of blocks to make, or 18 blocks.
I’m really loving how this is turning out. I just stand in my sewing room and stare at it. This isn’t the final design. I’ll wait until I get all the blocks done to start tweaking.
Holy cow. These fabrics! So amazingly gorgeous!
when I was going to through my stash of Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics for this scrappy trip quilt I realized that I had a pretty poor selection of purples and greens. So I went online a couple of days ago and ordered a bunch. I don’t have any specific plans for these fabrics. But aren’t they gorgeous?
The KFC fabrics are so amazing to me in the way the colors just all work together. Look at all those different tones of green… and they look fantastic together! I’ve been wanting to make a quilt with KFC greens. I’ll have to keep my eyes out for a pattern.
I saw this Brandon Mably design called Primulas when I was shopping online. I don’t remember when it came out. In the photos online the print looks much smaller. But you can see from the photo that’s not the case. I really like it!
I have a sheep herding lesson with Rico tomorrow afternoon. I plan to get more strip sets and blocks done tomorrow.
