This is my first actual Quilt Along and it’s pretty exciting! I finally got my hands on Jen Kingwell’s Gypsy Wife pattern, then I saw Michelle‘s post about a Quilt Along. It was fate. I thought I’d have to play some catch up, but January was just figuring out fabric choices.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m going to try and use fabric from my scrap bins only. We’ll see.
The first 6 blocks were pinwheels, 4 with borders. Crazy luck, but I have a bunch of leftover HST’s from the Stars Quilt that are the perfect size.
Since they are mostly blue and white I tried to throw in some more color.
The 7th block for February is a Color Wheel.
The fabric patterns wouldn’t be my typical choice, but they were in my scraps and I dig the actual color. So it works!
I love Jen’s quilt and hope to end up with something I love half as much.
The Quilt Along is spread out over a year and laid out in a format I can actually follow. I think it’s around 7 blocks per month. The pattern looks a bit crazy to me with blocks of all sizes, and strips all over the place. It will be nice to have a group of quilters to refer to with questions and suggestions.
