Start Your Sewing Machines
May 20, 2008 § 10 Comments
Sharpen your scissors, get out your rotary cutters and get ready to start the Medallion Quilt-Along. It’s less than two weeks away! I dug through my stash a couple of days ago after thinking about a theme for my quilt.
It is my goal to make the quilt top entirely from my stash. And a secondary criteria is to use up as many of those “uglies” as possible. You know the ones… you’re scratching your head wondering what in the world possessed you to buy THAT fabric! They really don’t look all that bad when paired together with everything else, do they?
I did throw in a couple of fabrics that I love. But I’m not sure if I’m going to allow myself the pleasure of using them. We’ll see as the quilt progresses over the next year. I haven’t yet decided on a center block. Still mulling that over. I’ll let you know as soon as I decide.
I’ve decided that I want the overall theme to follow the colors in this photo of Notre Dame. I really think there needs to be more beiges and browns. But overall… not bad.
Anybody else out there wanting to join the quilt-along? Is there anybody that I’ve forgotten to list in the sidebar? Please let me know if I need to make any corrections.
