So in my effort to become a better (more accurate) quilter I have decided to embark on Amanda Jean's (Crazy Mom Quilts) Quilt-a-long. This seems to be a project that she began last year, however she is currently in the middle of guiding the craft blogosphere thru another series, a Star Quilt-a-long. Stars seem to be a bit advanced for me at the moment, so I decided to put that one on hold and back-up to her original project. Here is week one, without trimming or shaping. I decided to wait on that part until I have all 12 squares complete and decide on placement.
I think that I am going to go with a rainbow color theme for each square - I hope that will give it an overall cheerful effect; yet folksy enough that it will fit in at our family cabin. I am certainly drawing from my contemporary fabrics with dots and stripes, but if I like it enough maybe I will return to it with my vintage sheet stash?!
