This is a group of fabric I've been collecting for over 4 years. It started with finding the batik (on top) at Mary Jo's. The colors are phenomenal but I just have not been able to find the right pattern. ( I didn't take these, just the book).
I recently checked this book of our Guild's library. I think I've found the perfect pattern for this project!! So I took graph paper, pencil and eraser and worked on graphing out a pattern. More to come... This is one of Jean and Valori's older books but it's fabulous!
Then of course there's the hexies project. This is a long term project as the only time I work on this is usually in the car. A friend gifted me hundreds of hexies all prepped and ready to be joined (oh, and by the way, she's the same one who gifted me the orphan block from the previous post). While 30's are not my passion, the colors are fun and happy and I'm content to work on this slowly.
I do think it's going to be beautiful. I don't plan on any setting hexies, I'm just going to join them like this. It's going to be plenty big enough.
Last, but not least, is a big bunch of leftover scraps from my wild Pineapple Quilt. I also used these scraps when I designed the One of a Kind quilt and I still have a whole tote of them that I'm going to have to find projects for . I swear, I think these things multiply during the night LOL!!!
I'm playing around with a variation of a quilt I saw in APQ several years ago.
I took a small cutting mat, rotary cutter and ruler and went to town. Each center will have this Kaffe fabric, and the surrounding logs are basically anything.
As you can see, it's going to be a happy quilt!!! Out of the all the pineapple projects, this one is the most like me - I think I'm going to love this one!! I'm hoping to get some serious sewing done on this project now that I have so many blocks prepped.
Since my DH made some business calls on the way up and back, I did all the cutting in the hotel room (lest you think I tried to rotary cut in the car!!) All the other projects were done in the car.
The sun is out - I'm lovin' it!
