Camden Road QAL - Choosing Fabric

Today is the official start of the Camden Road Quilt Along that I'm co-hosting with Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs!


Assuming you have your pattern - the next step is choosing some fabric. Today both Cheryl and I are sharing the fabric we're using for our own Camden Road quilts. 

I'm making a 6-block quilt and adding borders to create a kid's quilt for charity. I pulled navy, green and aqua from my stash for the blocks and will be using white and aqua for the backgrounds.

You may notice that I have way more fabrics than I need for just 6 blocks, but I thought it would be fun to make it scrappier and I may eliminate one or two as I go. 

Next week I'll be sharing how to cut a scrappy version and prepare your blocks for piecing.


Have you chosen your fabrics yet? I've seen a few great combos pop up on Instagram! Be sure to share your fabrics there #CamdenRoadQAL, in the Facebook Group or leave a comment to tell us what colors you're using.

One of the great things about this pattern is that there are so many possibilities!!
