A lot of the participants are using reproduction fabrics and being true to the time period and look. I'm not really a reproduction fabric lover, so I am going a different route. I have also signed a pledge not to start until the 28th in order to be in for a possible giveaway win. But I have my patterns copied, my book I had spiral bound in order to use it better and I have my fabrics selected for my quilts.
Yes, quilts! Why do anything the easy way?
I have been wanting to do a black and white quilt and selected these from my stash. Black and white with a pop of red on the blocks for color. I do have a bit of black/cream in there I will have to weed out unless the piece can be done on the black part of the fabric. Texter already has her eye on this one.
The second one I am going to do is also pulling from my stash. I have this layer cake and charm pack I need to do something with.
I figure it won't be hard to find other fabrics to fill in with these colors if needed.
The background I am going to use on the black/white/red will probably be various light grey. I will see what I finally use for the French General lines.
But I am really excited and figure with the quilt being spaced out over several months, I should be able to do the two quilts. We will see. In the meantime, back to watching Longmire and crocheting on Sophie's Universe.
