Now that our local quilt show is over, I can relax and play. I needed something fun instead of fancy. First thing I did was take out my box of solids. This box isn’t huge but it’s loaded with solid fabrics of every color. Some are leftovers from my mini dresden, a new bundle of jewel tones and the rest were given to me by a good friend!
I love to use solids but this will be a first to use only solids. I found this pattern on Craftsy and saved it for a later date. Today is that date.
I have plans to use more of these solids in another project after I finish this one.
There is even a backing that has been sitting on my shelf for years! I love it when that happens. Shopping your own stash can make you feel so efficient.
I’ve already sewn the bottom row and it’s 60″ long. The pattern calls it a throw size, can’t wait to see how big it’s going to be.
A lot of color will be used in this quilt but I’m really looking forward to seeing them. I really need a less formal quilt to play with. I’m even thinking this is another quilt that needs straight line quilting. Hopefully this will be a quick and easy quilt because I already want to play with another quilt!
Surprising myself I bought 2 Kaffe Fasset charm packs in blues, turquoise, plum and violet. I think a can do a controlled color palette of Kaffes this way, with a few solids thrown in. If I can’t handle it, it’ll be a great gift for someone!
Take care my friends, Brandie
