|My completed Groove coloring page - fabric ordered!|
I chose to use Kona Cotton Solids in mango, daffodil, asparagus, sage, and eggshell. It may sound like a recipe for a disgusting health shake, but it looks so beachy and pretty!
There is a nice PDF coloring sheet on the website that I used to lay out the colors. And the colors are slightly off-looking. That's what happens when you just copy over the swatch from the fabric website. They're all a little more muted than shown above. Now I've got to buy the pattern!
If you're interested in quilting along, there's a button on the right side of the page that will take you to the main page for the quilt along.
I'm also working on hand-sewn binding for my Charming Stars quilt. Slow and steady. It's just over halfway finished! And I basted the Birds of a Feather quilt today. It was my second attempt at spray basting - it seems to be okay so far, minus the fact that some of it ended up on the floor (oops, they say on the bottle to put down paper or something, and you should probably follow the instructions). We'll see how it holds up during the quilting process! Oh and finally, I pre-washed some fabric (*gasp* - from the girl who never prewashes anything) that I am using for a super awesome quilt to be shared later. Hopefully I will finish it in time to try to get it into the Quiltcon show coming up this winter!
That pesky pebble quilting is taunting me! It would be nice to be able to just check one UFO off the list! Charming Stars will be the first to go!
