Jana @ Jana Machado has organised a Quilt-A-Long using Camille Roskelly's pattern Night Sky. Today is link up day over on her blog and I am pleased to say I have one block made. Yup, just the one!
The rest are like a giant jigsaw puzzle in pieces up on the design wall!
I'm making a small version of this quilt 48" x 56" from my on hand Christmas fabrics. Mine is a scrappy version made up of a left over Layer Cake of Joy by Kate Spain, Riley Blake's Santa's Little Helpers and a smattering of Folk Art holiday.
I've added in Kona Snow, Ash and Navy in an attempt to pull the scrappiness together, very similar to the palette in the original pattern made with Bonnie & Camille's new line of fabric, Daysail.
Not using fat quarters, I started with cutting up all the pieces I would need, working out how many of each block and what colours I wanted, whiled away the whole afternoon last Sunday.
I'm loving the large 16" blocks in this pattern. This red block is my favourite so far. I really like the red white and aqua colour scheme too. Must think about that for another project!
Linking up to Jana today. Please head on over there for more of the blog hop and to see her fabulous blocks. So far Jana has managed to make unique blocks, no two the same! Some people even have a finished quilt top! No pressure then, it's not like I have a deadline or anything! 34 more days, plenty of time don't you think?
