With a week to go until Elizabeth posts cutting instructions, I've finally found my fabric! Not that it was too far lost, but it wasn't where I first thought it was!
I came across the Kaleidoscope block in my online travels quite a number of months ago and instantly fell in love with it. I bought a few yards of fabric when Walmart was selling off all of theirs and I earmarked it specifically for a future kaleidoscope project, not knowing when that might be.
A couple of weeks ago, Lee at Freshly Pieced asked Elizabeth at Don't Call Me Betsy to host WIP Wednesday and when I went to post my linky over there, my eyes lit up! A kaleidoscope quilt along! Starting at the end of June! Yayy! Now what did I do with that fabric...?
|Here it is!||
I'll mix and match from it and see what I come up with! I've decided I'll do a baby quilt and that'll bump my yellow and purple Baby Nine Patch back to the end of the project line for now. Here are my fabric requirements:
The green, yellow and purple in the bottom left corner of the above photo are the choices I'll use for my coordinating solid. I'll see which one matches best when I start cutting my prints. I'll likely not bother with borders for a change. Or so I say now! I'll do the binding out of the same fabric as my backing and therein lies the mystery. Do I have three yards in my stash that will work for backing? Or do I have an excuse to visit Fabricland? Time will tell.....
The idea is to be done this quilt by the beginning of August, so it'll provide an opportunity for me to practice my machine quilting. I'm hoping it'll go fairly smoothly because of all the straight lines.
A week to go and I'm ready to start my first ever online quilt along and I've finally posted about it, after some, uh, slight procrastination. How about that?
Now, about this Farmer's Wife Sampler quilt along......(my resistance is wearing down!)
