We don’t often (or ever) post photos of our quilts in progress. It usually takes 1 year from the time we finish a quilt to the time when the book is at the quilt shop. It is frustrating to people to have to wait so long for a pattern. But blogs are all about sharing what’s going on now. So, while I can’t show you the whole quilt, I can show you selected parts of what I’m working on now.
I am using these pieces from Jinny Beyer’s Palette Collection. The greens laying on the diagonal are the block and border backgrounds. I’m piecing them. I’ll show you a pieced block background later next week.
Quilter’s often want to use exactly the fabrics that we used when they are making their quilts. This collection and these colors should still be available in 2 years – and even longer. Here’s a question for you: If I added a few prints or dots just for fun, and those fabrics were not available in 2 years, would you be unhappy? My thought is that there is always a fun substitute and finding those substitutes is a great way to make a quilt your own. Is that what you think too?
I really would like to know what you all think so please leave comments.
