Feb 2013 BOM

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I could not decide which fabric to use for the center... so I made up and cut the strip-sets... then laid them out on different colors to decide on the center square. I had narrowed it down to few colors, when it dawned on me that I didn't have to make them all the same... I like the different colors! My goal is to use mostly grey and black and white in this quilt, with just accents of color in each block. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow the instructions, but have fun with selecting your fabrics!

What you will need

  • Fun polka-dot fabrics --- I bought the kit
  • and I will also be adding more black
  • white and grey spotted fabrics to the colorful mix.

Gorgeous Di! I couldn't imagine how to work with the grays and steel. You've done a beautiful job. Makes me wish my kit came with all the original fabrics. I received one with substitutions - two of which are these fabrics. Especially like the different centers. Fabulous idea!
Di4N4 answered:
Yhanks, Jean! My kit had a few substitutions, and I sure couldn't figure out how to do a duplicate of the sample quilt, so I was happy to "mix it up" a bit! For some reason, I like to see the color grey in quilts... the two pale grey fabrics in these blocks are some that I purchased as a supplement to what came with the kit. (One can't ever have too much fabric, LoL!)... It is a challenge for me to plan the blocks, but I really want to use black, white, lots of greys, and just a bit of the bright colors... this forces me to really focus on 'value" and less on color... Another BOM learning experience! :)
