I made the Thanksgiving edition of The Jolly Jabber’s Customer Project Roundup! My Glamping quilt is project #4 in their list. My Bungle Jungle quilt was listed back in September 2012 as well. I’ve got another project in progress with fabric I also bought from FQS – it’s Sweetwater’s Noteworthy. I’ve already made a wallhanging for my office, drawstring bags, and now I’ve finally cut up my jelly roll. Things are moving pretty quickly and I am pretty sure I’ll have a finished top tomorrow night. That’s great timing since I’ve got a date with the long arm on December 15 – I think this one is next to be listed in my ‘finished’ list.
Seems a little sad to have a post with no pictures, so here they are…
Auditioning solid colors for my next project – a chevron quilt using Legacy by Angela Walters. I’ve got ten 1/2 yard cuts and needed to find a coordinating solid for every-other row. My initial thought on this was to use grey for my solid rows, so that’s where I started.
Then I decided to see how a yellow would look. Nope, I wasn’t digging it.
Then I moved on to blues. There are so dang many blues on this Moda color card! I couldn’t find a blue-blue that I liked, so it was on to another option.
I finally decided on Caribbean (second one). The photo doesn’t do it justice, but it looks good with all the prints I’m using.
I am using a dark grey on the back, and I think the recipient will really like it. I ordered the solids for this project along with a bolt of white (that was a big step for me, let me tell you!) with the Black Friday Sale that Fat Quarter Shop had this weekend. WooHoo for fabric on sale!
