Heres a pic of the fabrics for my next quilt top in Volume One of Quilters Academy.. also the last one before starting class 180, borders! then quilting and binding. After that on to the final!
The middle light colour is the background, the left pile is the darker outside parts of the blocks and the right side is the contrast on the inside of the blocks. The line of fabric is called Tapestry by Fig Tree ?? for Moda fabric. I got most of the fat quarters pressed last night and got strips of the darks all cut.
They will need to be subcut into the lengths in the directions. there are 18 of these blocks and i have 9 light and 9 dark and the plan is to have each colour twice in the block but not with the same colour each time , so it will give it a scrappy but co-ordinated look.
I realized i dont have the dark fabric for the irish chain blocks, will have to hunt throught the stash tonight and see what i have.
the colours look a little washed out in the picture but they are a little more vibrant than they appear and the background just looks like a pale ivory but it is actually a pale buttery , creamy colour. I should probably get a picture of the project up here too.
well must dash and finish getting ready for work.
