So I looked at the schedule for February and the lovely pile of fabric that I bought from Amitie. They are fabulous at sending 'scrap' packs to a dollar amount that you specify. This works for me - my stash is a curious assortment of fabric that I think will be useful for binding (stripes and the like), some blenders, some small collections of fabric that I have been obsessed with at some point or another, and now a largish collection of low volume fabric which has been my latest obsession. None of that really works for a quilt like Gypsy Wife so I was very happy when this turned up in the mail:
First up on the list was a block called Colour Wheel. Oh the agony choosing what fabric to cut into first. According to Jen "the greater the number of fabrics you use, the more fun your quilt will become". Righto.
This was an easy enough block to piece, I just forgot to pay attention to the instructions and only managed 50% accuracy with this little group (all the pale triangles need to be on the same side of the larger piece).
And then it was puzzle time. Again, much quicker if you actually look the helpful diagrams.
And finally success.
One down. Eleventy million to go.
