I've signed up for an Independent Block of the Month class/group coming up at the local quilt shop. Rather than follow a set pattern, we're getting to choose our own project and set our own goals for finishing it, but we will be sharing our projects monthly in a group setting. Brilliant idea!
For my project, I've decided to do a pinwheel sampler quilt and I'll be using the Pinwheel Sampler Quilt-a-Long posted over on P.S. I Quilt. Lots of examples of this quilt/blocks here. There are a few blocks I may change up and I'd like to add cornerstones(maybe) but the finished product will most definitely be a pinwheel sampler. They're my favorite, along with log cabins.
And now for the decision that I'd like your help with. I have three stacks of fabrics and I cannot make a choice. So maybe you can offer some opinions? Please excuse my crappy lighting situation and know these are all much nicer in person. SO, do I go with...
Hello Betty for a fun retro look? I love these fabrics. Seriously.
Spirit by Lila Tueller for a modern version?
Or my new stash of Jay McCarrol's Garden Friends for a kooky-mod quilt?
|Note to self: There's enough of this for a Turning Twenty quilt.|
And then there's the sashing. I love love love a quilt with lots of white, so I'm thinking white or a soft creamy white would work for each.
What to do? What to do?
I'd love your input.
