Part of me just wanted to make the quilt as it was presented. Afterall, the colours were what caught me first. But it just didn't seem very original. I spent a goodly amount of time auditioning from my stash and referring to my colour card. It really made me consider doing this to the card! Here's the starting line-up. Konas, glorious Konas!
|Papaya, Coral, Capri, Emerald, Pepper, Medium Gray, Silver, and White
The designer/teacher is a big proponent of starching your fabric. Never done that before! I watched her informative video, but I didn't have any spray starch on hand, so my first few two blocks just had to go without. That said, I'm definitely considering starching for future blocks with appliqué and bias edges.
So, first block... can you guess what it's going to be? What I can tell you is that these are 1 inch strips. Be afraid, be very afraid.
Hope you did some sewing... maybe even in lieu of your homework (or housework, as the case may be)!
P.S This is a monumental post, sports fans! It's my 100th!!!
