Well, I went ahead and made the first 2 blocks in yet another quilt along. It's called Tell It To The Stars, and it is hosted by Judy L. at Patchwork Times. She posts a lot on her blog, so if you go looking for it, you will have to browse quite a bit. Or, you could look for the quilt along logo either on the side bar or bottom bar.
Emma helped me pull the fabrics earlier this month. You may recall the combination.
I was concerned that I didn't have enough contrast in the grouping, but threw caution to the wind and just did it.
And I have to say I am rather pleased with the look! It will be a pretty quilt, in my opinion! It will definitely be one that Emma will like, as she has always been a purple girl.
You may recognize some of the fabrics as very old Thimbleberries - the background, the center green and the darker purple. The light purple is from one of Barbara Brackman's collections, and the navy is unknown.
The quilt along will last all of 2014, and from what I can gather, we will make 2 of the same blocks each month. So here are the January blocks.
This quilt will be a nice break from the tedious work on the Burgoyne Surrounded quilt along. These pieces are nice and big, so the construction goes really fast. Nice. Very nice.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
