Since I saw Allison's quilt, I started collecting some fabrics I thought would look good in a similar quilt. I've picked up a few fat quarters here and there and then last week I bought some 1/2 yards on sale at fabric.com and a few on Etsy. I think I've accumulated just the right mixture of colors and scale to make this quilt beautiful. Here's what I ended up with:
These fabrics were a departure for me. I am partial to buying all the fabric in a quilt from the same manufacturer and line. I've never used Joel Dewberry, Amy Butler, or the Japanese imports before. My kids and I laid out all the blocks this morning and I am hoping to have it pieced by the end of tomorrow morning!
