Alternate Colored Drawings
Before deciding if you want to do this quilt with me, here are some things you need to know and there will be an explanation farther down in the post.
- This has to go quickly for me. I’ll be making this quilt along with you, though I’ve already made one. If you care about keeping up with each step, you’re going to have to hustle.
- The quilt is not easy like most of my quilts. It isn’t hard like curved piecing or Mariner’s Compass, but it’s a bit different from the quilts you typically do with me.
- There are smaller pieces than I usually work with.
- The graphics may be more pictures of my work than drawings. Drawings take me a while because I’m so terrible at graphics but snapping a photo of my block in progress is easy.
In other words . . if you want to do this with me, roll up your sleeves and prepare to work overtime to keep up. My feelings aren’t hurt if no one wants to do this one with me . . it will save me time by not doing the directions but I’m happy to do the directions if anyone wants to “Quilt Along” with me.
It will be about 70″ x 81″ if made following my directions.
Fabrics matter! For this quilt to be all it can be, it needs to have three shades of one color (purple shown above). This is the to I’ve already made.
This is the top I’ve already made, except for the border, and the border is made but just not attached.
My quilt will be going to a friend who is having some serious surgery soon.
So, if anyone wants to make this along with me . . you’re going to have to work to keep up. If you don’t have the time or the money for fabric right now, you won’t hurt my feelings.
I’m starting on it some time next week but the first installment will not be posted til June 3 so I can at least check the instructions before posting them.
