Sonoran Surprise

Project Description

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just go for it.

What you will need

  • Rowan Kaffe Fassett Collectiive 6" roll 'Earth'
  • Simple Pleasures (backgroud fabric). I'll add Aboriginal dot terra (GP71) as a thin border
  • and Milefiore (Gp92) as the outer border
  • both Rowan fabrics
  • I was shocked to get all the blocks done with just the roll
  • and background
  • I thought I'd have to add some other fabric
  • but I didn't. And I have a about 10" x 6 of each fabric left over to put in another quilt or do pillow cases with.

This is just wonderful! I love how all the colors came together in groups within the group! Surprise indeed.... a beautiful one.
dkaym answered:
Thank you. I'm planning on getting the borders on today then I'll post a finished picture. The more I look at it the more I like it.
Sue P. asked:
Can't wait to see the finished project! Beautiful!
dkaym answered:
Thanks. So it's done, and that's how I spent my memorial day weekend. Quilting is there anything better?
dhuekell550725 asked:
Love it! I'm partial to autumn colors.
dkaym answered:
Tell you a secret, at first I wasn't sure I liked it at all, but after finishing it today, I definatel do. Now I just have to decide if my hands will cooperate enough to let me quilt it or if I'll have to send it off to be quilted.

This is based on Kimberly Einmo's Jacob's Ladder class, right? You came up with a TRULY creative layout!!
dkaym answered:
Yes it is. Thank you. Happy Quilting!
