I have made a mosaic in preparation of the launch of the Mug Rug and Goodies Swap. If you are not aware of this then pop on over to Fluffy Sheep Quilting and sign up if you are interested. There are still two days left before sign ups close. Cindy would love to have you join in, and so would I. It took me a while to make my mosaic and I only put 12 photos in from my favourites in Flickr, but I think that is enough to show that I have a childish delight in bright colours and bold design.
Next on my list was cutting my fabric for the Across the Sea Modern Quiltalong. It took me a long time pondering, and a lot of digging through fabric to finally come up with a combination that made me happy. I am new to the concept of putting together fabric combinations myself rather than relying on FQ bundles of fabric from the same line. I don't have much confidence in the whole rigmarole yet, but for once I made myself happy. These are the fabrics I am going with.
I used the FQ of Quite Contrary by My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake fabrics - the one in the middle on the left - as a base for pulling in all the other colours. A quick consultation with my fellow QAL quilters assured me that white would be the backing fabric of choice for everyone - so white it is. That's that sorted. Think I need to order some more white though.
Only I didn't make it to the post office. Because I was waiting for a delivery. All day. It came, and now I have to go because I have a new toy.
