Outside my comfort zone


I don't ever do 'quilt-a-long's. Too much pressure. Never enough time.

But here I am joining in with this.




Also, I don't like blue. Never have.

But when I went in to Amitie today to purchase my fabrics for the quilt along, I ended up with these ....


I walked into the shop and said to myself:
"Whichever is the first fabric to catch my eye will be in the quilt and I will build the selection around that one".

Here was my first choice:


and I simply had to add in all these .....


This will be the binding .....


Looking forward to seeing how it will all turn out .... if I can find the time!!

For those of you wanting to know what all these fabrics are, I say .... "I'm not sure. They just looked pretty in the shop". But the good news is that the shop liked this selection too and is turning them into a kit, so call up (or email) Amitie and ask them for more info.
