Hello again for WiP Wednesday. A while back I saw that the Belle line of fabric by Amy Butler was going through a reprint. There was one print in particular that caught my fancy and I knew I had to have it. The French Wall Paper in Duck Egg. Just for the name alone.
When I found a few fat quarters at my favorite LQS, Rock Paper Scissor, I was inspired. I started throwing fat quarters together and picked out two Kona Solids to set them off – one being Kona Cerise. Duh. Y’all that is the most perfect color ever made. Ever.
This weekend, I threw caution to the wind and just started sewing. I had a plan. Roughly drawn on the back of a school memo, with terrible math. Hence why my plan of three horizontal rows has now become vertical rows because it would have been HUGE thanks to many miscalculations.
Then, the real fun set in. I started framing these suckers in Cerise. And I was hooked. Omg, I can’t get over that color. Here are a few of my favorites so far:
Here’s the general layout I’m going for with this quilt. Now that I compensated for my terrible math. Of course I left the Duck Egg print for last – it is so beautiful.
Once they’re all done, the plan is to set them into Kona Navy. I see really simple straight-line quilting. Why did I decide to start a new quilt this weekend when I have the world’s longest to-do list?
