Wow, posts two days in a row?! That's almost unheard of! :)
Happy Fabric Tuesday to all my friends from Quiltstory. I love heading over each week to see what others are up to - it is so inspiring!
My big (BIG!) project right now is a quilt for my master bedroom. I saw Ty Pennington's new line and fell head over heals in love with the green and grey. I'm doing the Rain or Shine pattern from Elizabeth over at Oh!Fransson's book. I finished up my first block this weekend and even though it was a lot of work, I'm loving the results! Lining up my center points needs some serious work though... I've never pressed my seams open, but with all the bulk created in the middle with these points I think I'm going to have to.
I wish the colors showed up better in this picture, but trust me when I say they are a wonderful shade of green, not yellow. I decided to use a solid in each block as well to cut down on some of the business. This block has Kona Coal in it. Others will have Kona Cactus and Kona White. the sashing will be in Kona Ash. I can't wait to get more blocks made! Maybe if we get all the snow they're talking about I can be "forcefully" held up at home with my sewing machine :)
Happy quilting, friends!
