On Thursday I picked up my DMC perle cotton from the stitching shoppe in Moncton. And then it was on to sorting out my blue fabrics for the blocks. The pattern calls for 6 darks, 6 white/lights and 3 mediums. That's a lot of fabric, but the good news is, is that I had over half of them in my stash.
This morning, I drug a bag full of fabrics down to Country Crafts quilt shop and laid them all out. With Diane's help, we eliminated a bunch right away. Then after pulling about 18 bolts out from her shelves and auditioning them, we found the 6 fabrics that were needed to complete the range.
Now, I'm ready to piece and stitch. Is it July 1st yet!!!!
