If you read my blog regularly, you could probably tell pretty easily that my favorite part of the quilting process is choosing the fabrics for my projects. I love focusing in on a color story, or a print, or a pattern, and mixing and matching different fabric to make the project come to life.
The piecing, quilting, and binding? ... yeah, that stuff gets done mostly out of necessity.
I was flattered to be asked by Kimberly at the Fat Quarter Shop to take part in their newest program, the Blogger's Choice Bundle series. This series features fat quarter bundles, made up of 12 prints and 3 solids each, selected by several different quilt bloggers. After browsing the site for some inspiration I began gravitating towards this mix of navy blue, dark forest green, teal and white, with charcoal grey as my solid of choice -- quite different from many of the brighter quilts I've been seeing made lately. I think this somewhat masculine mix of colors would make a really great quilt for a boy's bed.
I was VERY excited to receive one of my bundles recently, and I'm trying to decide what kind of quilt to make with it. What do you think? Do you like it? What type of project would suit it best? For a few more days, you also have the opportunity to win one of my bundles! Head on over to the FQS' Jolly Jabber blog and leave a comment for your chance to win.
Oh, and while you're there, can you let me know what type of quilt I should make? I listed a few early thoughts in my post over there, but can't decide ...
