Nothing on my design wall today but I thought I would show you the beginnings of a new project. The Allatoona Guild is going to be doing a mystery quilt instead of our usual Block of the Month next year. It is designed by Pat Wys of Silver Thimble Quilt Co. Because it is a mystery, I won’t be blogging about it during the year but I can share the fabrics I am going to use.
It is going to be a two color quilt but of course two colors does not necessarily mean two fabrics, although that would certainly work. First I went through all my Kaffe prints but finally decided that they were just too busy to do credit to this design. Then I started looking at various colors and finally decided on purple. Tiny Stitches had a fat quarter sale (buy one, get one free) over the weekend so I bought purples. I need about 5 yards but ended up getting a little more for variety.
On the bottom of the top two photos are a couple of the possible backgrounds – white and grey. I haven’t decided on it yet, but think I will use only one fabric for the background.
