A. The very first ever quilt I'm making.
I've had a change of plans ... Yesterday my friend/quilt coach ("A") & I went to the fabric store together. Who knew that place could swallow you up for hours on end?! By the time we left I had plan, a pattern & .... almost all new material! Those of you who are "sew" inclined....does this happen a lot?! Just curious bc it could get expensive.
Anyhow - here's my plan:
All the normal squares will alternate checkerboard style w/ the black calico & the french looking black & off white fabric. The fancy squares will be the red w/ black print. The arcs, dots & thin inside border will be teal. The outside wider boarder will be the black/off-white/red flower calico.
...& the back will be soft... rich... warm.... red flannel.
I'm "sew" excited to get started.... I've gotta wash & iron the fabric then Monday I'm planning to head over to A's house so she can help me measure & cut & then I should be off & runnin'.
On another note....this is what it looks like outside our window today.
A good day to bake some homemade cinnamon rolls, hunker down & get some of the more mundane chores done around the house. I'm actually looking forward to it. I love days like this.
