I’ve been assured, based on my quilty-blog browsing, that many quilters tend to gravitate toward filling their stash with a specific color (or a couple of them). Mine has been inundated with blues and greens from the start, but after my latest shopping spree, the greens have pulled ahead in the race (and other colors have gained no ground at all, it seems).
All of these…
…will be going into one particular quilt, though (well, that’s the current plan, at least. Maybe not all will make it in). I have a feeling there will be lots of scraps leftover, due to the project calling for two layer cakes and the fact that I’m not using precuts.
What exactly is this for, you ask?
Well, I thought I’d join another Quilt Along, and Rachel Griffith of p.s. i quilt kindly obliged with the Synchronized Squares QAL. I’m a bit behind already, but I have high hopes. (Plus, I need to see what the next step is before I can cut into the fabric, as I haven’t quite decided what is going where.)
Who is it for? Well, that’s a secret for now (don’t want to spoil the surprise too much if they see me talk about it on Facebook and all…), but keep in mind that I’ve made a quilt for one parent and one sibling. I still have two and four to go (maybe more if I make ones for my BILs and my [not legally] SIL). And then, maybe, I can start on nieces and nephews… all seven (ten including Carl’s) of them, with the potential for more to come. Yikes! Better get working.
