A wee bit ago I posted about a quilt-a-long that I am participating in that's in the beginning stages. I THINK I've selected my fabrics (see below) BUT I am making a trip up north that may change my decision OR provide me with materials for a second one!
Here's my current selection, as of 7:00 am this morning with a bright yellow and a lovely deep green for accents:
Here is the quilt we will be creating:
Don't you think those florals will be stunning? I am partial to the blues and purples myself...
The quilt-a-long is a wonderful project put together by Jill & Sarah from Becoming Martha and Create.craft.love. 60+ folks are giving the project a whirl, one week at a time. Right now, we are all selecting our fabrics, hence the gorgeous goodies at the top of the post.
That all being said, I have the opportunity to hit THE COOLEST quilt shop in NH today: Keepsake Quilting. If you live in New England and you quilt, chances are you've heard of this amazing shop in "Centah Hahhbah" (Center Harbor) New Hampshah (New Hampshire) - bit of New England humor there. I may find a completely different set of fabrics to use OR may decide to do two! Muahahaha! Now we are talking!
Keepsake Quilting is this fabulous quilters haven in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. It's about mid-state and smack-dab in the middle of one of our most lovely areas, right near Lake Winnipesaukee. It's a great place any time of year.
As far as the quilt-a-long goes, I am very interested in seeing if they have some sort of bundle or collection that I could use to make the quilt an "I Spy" for the boys? Hmmm.... a girl can look, right?
I am thinking like this veggie set:
Or maybe this farm one:I Spy Animals set:
This set would be fun:
Oh goodness... good chance one of these will be coming home with me!
What do you guys think? The fabrics I have or one of these sets? HELP!!! I would love your input!
