I reluctantly cut into my Lotta Jansdotter fabric - both Echo and Bella.
When you love a fabric so much are you also afraid to cut into it???
Luckily I only used half of each fat quarter, so I still have some left. And like always I have to add something new to a line of fabric. This was interesting because I'm not only looking for coordinating colors, but prints that have the same flavor. What I found is these graphic prints have no shades of color. White + one or two colors. So I added several prints from Modern Meadow with the same characteristic.
I was a little disappointed in the pattern I came up with. I was trying to get the look of the print rectangles sitting atop a band of gray. It took me a few days staring at the quilt to figure out why it didn't work perfectly. At first, I thought maybe the gray spacers were too small. But I really think they are too light. They blend with the prints and I think would have been better a bit darker. Do you agree?
I also finished up this kid quilt, using 3 UFO blocks. I'd like to donate a couple of quilts to the 100 Quilts For Kids event this year. This will be the first.
Also batt-less ~ these 2 blocks for Nancy in our Redbird Bee. Fun and easy!
Next up ~ find some batting and get these babies quilted! . . . Cindy
