In any case, I did my first fabric shopping in nearly a year! I got backing for my Stash Bee Star quilt from Traditions at the White Swan, I bought the rest of a bolt of an amazing bold floral print that I'm going to have to design a quilt around from Patches Quilting, and I got a few coordinating fabrics from Capital Quilts to start a new project.
I also got the satin stitching on my May wall hanging done -- at least for the flowers. I'm still not sure if this should have decorations in the border or not. Thoughts? Part of me thinks that maybe it should have a little something to break up all of the green, but not sure what exactly to do!
I also finally got some more Kona Champagne to get the top of my QCQAL quilt from last year together! Here are all 25 of my blocks laid out:
And here are all of my blocks sashed together!
I put sashing fabric on two sides of each block and alternated which two sides had the sashing to make it look like the blocks are floating semi-randomly and not just perfectly aligned with one another in columns and rows. I am SO happy with how this turned out. I need to add one border of the Kona Champage all the way around the quilt and then it will be ready to be quilted! I haven't decided if I want to quilt this one or if I want to have it done elsewhere. I think the quilting should be simple but not sure the best way to go about doing that.
Linking up with all of the normal Tuesday/Wednesday places!
