My first advice is . . don’t struggle with your decision about indigo fabric. Some charts put it as what I would call a dark navy and some put it as a lavenderish purple. If this link works, it will give you a good range.
To those who commented that I was quick about my indigo quilt . . yes! I am so ready to get back to my old life. For a full year, I was working on the next book. Not really “working” on it but it was always on my mind. Now it’s selling the house, finding a house, moving . I want to my day to day routine back . . get up, fix breakfast, sew all day, fix dinner, sew til bed time. That’s my calling! 🙂
Even though I haven’t been able to make a lot of the monochromatic quilts, I was so ready to sew that I knew I was going to get started right away on an indigo quilt. Yes . . some of you are thinking I sew more than anyone you know but lately I haven’t been sewing enough!
Here’s the design I came up with for the indigo quilt.
I don’t have enough of the dot fabric so I’m going to use it in the background around the blocks and then in the border area, I may have to use a plain ecru background fabric. And, the colors in the drawing are not indigo . . they’re just some colored I used in the drawing.
And do you want to see my first block? Of course you do! 🙂
You would all laugh so hard if you knew how hard I’m struggling with that dot fabric. It’s so not tone on tone and I’m way out of my comfort zone with it. I need to hurry up and make some more blocks or I’m going to change my mind about using it. I like how it’s turning out but it’s really hard to use something with that much . . dot!
