When I am done-completely done including binding-both of my parent’s quilts, I’m going to move on and start one for Shannon and I. It hadn’t really occurred to me to make one for us until he said something a couple weeks ago. So the fabric collecting started, but I didn’t really know where I was going with it (colour wise) until I went to The Workroom and saw the dark brown Castle Peeps. I love it. There are greens and golds and purples, so I went largely with green.
It’s going to be green with smatterings of brown and purple. Here is what I have to work with, so far:
I can’t name everything, but other than Castle Peeps I got It’s a Hoot by Moda, Parisville by Tula Pink (if you quilt, get this, it’s gorgeous and the spotty colourway I got is already sold out-RUN), Far Far Away 2 by Heather Ross, a huge stack of Libs’ destash, and lots of other loveliness abounding. When I get to Target in the spring (and to Joanne’s Fabrics) hopefully the top will be finished and I’ll figure out the back/binding.
And no, I have no idea what pattern I’m doing. I like pinwheels and I love a good, old fashioned log cabin, but I’m thinking about doing a sampler type quilt with a bunch of different blocks all tied together. We’ll see!
