The year long quilting party celebrating the Fight For Women’s Rights is over. Now what? For starters, I have no projects in mind that include yellow. I’ve also joined another QAL, but this time I’m making a scrap quilt. Am I having fun with it? Boy Howdy!
It’s such a relief to wallow in color again. I’ve been diving into my fabric bins and pulling out bits and pieces and yardage in reds and greens and browns. The only other restriction that I have is that the fabrics must have fun together. So far so good.
Pulling fabrics for a scrap quilt can be likened to a surprise visit from an old friend. In the photo above I see several fabrics from two different quilts that were made for my nieces. Loved the fabrics then, still lovin’ them when they pop in again.
You might want to link over to Flickr and browse the group pool at The Stitching Witches Quilt Along, which is hosted by the one, the only, the original, Stitchin’ Witch. What? You were expecting someone else?
While you’re there, you might want to consider joining our group – don’t be shy, there aren’t any divas to be found among us, and it’s not too late to catch up. All the details can be found at the Flickr Group, but in a nutshell: it’s a Mystery Quilt Along, and once a month on or about the 13th, Stitchin’ Witch will email you the pattern and instructions for the next segment.
