Alyssa's BOM designs are written with the aim of skill building and they are always really well explained. Plus Alyssa offered the Modern Quilters Ireland group a discount if we signed up with more than 5 people which we did! For the month of January it was gathering materials and printing templates, which I decided instead to do as I went block by block and January was crazy busy too, so I basically didn't do anything on this at all!
Then in the Facebook group people started sharing their fabric pulls and Alyssa had given us a blank drawing to colour in and they were all so gorgeous, I felt a little guilty for not getting into this properly! So for the last few evenings, I've been colouring in too!

So now my original intentions of following the rainbow colour scheme that attracted me to the quilt design in the first place have gone out the window. I had planned on using my stash fabrics on a low volume background too! Now, I'm using my Kona colour card to help pull fabrics for my dark sky version. I have little to no jewel tones in my stash and am going to need a bucket load of blue! And I was doing so well at not buying too much fabric this year too. I think I can break my fabric diet for this one though.
