Girls Just Want To Have Fun
Last week I stopped at my LQS to pick up some thread. Vicky was looking at this book and mentioned that she wanted to do that quilt. "Wow, I have that book and I bought one for Rebekah at the same time. Lets do a block a month and by next year we will have all the blocks done for this quilt." says I....... We agreed to begin in February. We decided on 20 inch blocks. I went to Staples next to have the pattern enlarged to the size we needed. Rebekah agreed to join us and Friday I mailed her enlargements off to her.
Next we began a discussion of the the fabrics we would use. Vicky is thinking of a black background. Rebekah is looking at a purple background. I will be using the same fabric I am using on the Faye Anderson blocks as I have so much of it. Above are my fabric selections. I will begin prepping my first block this week. Sorry for the blurry picture but I had been sewing for a couple of hours this morning. That makes the back cranky and I cannot hold the camera steady.
