I have signed up for a fantastic swap called F2F: ” Foot to Freestyle”. Kate (talltalesfromchiconia) and Sue (fromthemagpiesnest) are organizing this worldwide swap. We each make 3 blocks per month, one square foot in size.
I am the first to receive blocks this June. About 33 blocks will be arriving on my doorstep this summer.
I am so excited! I think I have all the fabric I need for my blocks…and than some!
I think I will be making 9 blocks of my own instead of three. I want this quilt to be bigger so it will fit my bed. It seems like I have enough fabric to pull that off, ha ha!
My colour scheme might be a bit unusual, but I love it!
I have requested to the colours ” Fire King” – jadeite, coral and mustard on a white/creme or light grey background.
There is plenty of jade and blue-green to pick from in my stash!
Also mustard I have enough to select from! I will be adding some beige and oak colors to tie into my oak floorboards.
The colour coral is a bit more difficult. I have found one perfect piece (sketch-like, in the top left corner), but all of the other pinks are gorgeous too! I adore the fabric where the coral and jade are combined, don’t you?
So this is my colour inspiration picture!
I have already made two blocks…. I told you I was excited, right?
Block 1; paper pieced.
Block 2; paper pieced
Maybe I can make a third block tomorrow! I am looking forward to it!
Hugs and a happy holiday weekend to you all!!!
