This is one of my favorite quilts for scraps and I have had it pinned for ever to try and make. It is actually on my short list of blocks for the bees on here so will love seeing what you do! Love how you took picture to remind yourself of fabric. I have started making sure I list all the fabric names in project notes as well so I have a place to help me keep it organized!
True , it's not so bad with the patterned fabrics because they're much more easily recognizable but with solids I won't remember exactly which fabric and manufacturer I'm using for which project. My LQS carries a ton of solids so it's not like I can just walk in and spot what I'm looking for, good news bad news, eh? Photo's to the rescue!
Jennifleur well I think you are brilliant and I will remember this technique...I wish someone had a lot of solids by me:-(
Ten points for smart thinking, Jennifleur.
Ooh, I'm going to follow along to see this quilt finished. I always take a pic of the stack of bolts (label end) on the cutting table so I remember what fabric I've bought! Even the prints. LOL
I love the color you're using. Though I had to look up the pattern - I'm not much for knowing what most of the traditional patterns look like.
Mouseinmypocket , thanks! I've seen it done mostly in white which is nice but sometimes I get tired of all the white quilts out there. Plus? I have kids which doesn't really lend itself so well to light colored... anything. lol I think the Lagoon color is fun too.
BTW, and not that you need it now, but I linked the tutorial button on the right hand column to the page that shows how to make the block if anyone else is interested like say, True .
Kristananne , I should do that but I never think to unless it's a solid. I always figure I'll just read the selvage when I get home but yeah, a photo would be a lot easier to reference since I usually have my phone on me at all times but don't haul around my latest fabric purchases. Ha!
Jennifleur Haha! I tend to buy in smaller incremements like quarter or half yards because I'm a fabric-aholic and buy fabric just to have it. :) So the selvage doesn't always have complete info.
Jennifleur Thanks for tutorial...I have always seen it done with white too and since I have not used a lot of other solids have not thought too much of going in another direction. But I too have a home where white does not wear well so will really like seeing an alternative solid. I may still end up with white but it will allow me to see it done in an alternative. I have thought of gray since that is the color the white would look like after a bit of time on my couch anyway;-)
LOL I just pinned a quilt using this pattern and wondered how it was done. Perfect timing and THANKS for the link to the tutorial. I just love the richness of the blue you chose. Can't wait to see your progress.
It looks like you have made a good start. The Lagoon looks fabulous!
This is going to be fabulous!
I like the way this is shapping up! Love that blue.
I definitely love how the lagoon fabric is working on this.
This is looking awesome!
Love your version with the lagoon! I too have this pattern on my list of quilts I'd love to make.
Of course I'm going to like this because of my "Four Patch and Friends"! I also have an all scrappy version in my UFO collection. Such a great block.
Mouseinmypocket I get kind of tired of every thing being paired with white all the time (not that there aren't some gorgeous quilts out there w/ brights and whites) but I like to mix it up a little too.
This looks absolutely beautiful all put together. It's so bright and cheerful!
fantastic color choice in the Lagoon. this is a fun pattern that has a secondary pattern of the blue X's. I love it, I'm putting it on my list to do, thanks for the tutorial link too.
