Dead Simple Quilt-Along with Lily's Quilts.
When it all began, I was under the impression that the qa project was to be done in solids. Not sure how I got that, but that was my plan. And somewhere along the way I took Lynne's great idea to ask Peg and Becca from Sew Fresh Fabrics if they would make me up a custom bundle of prints to go along with my palette. (What a great service!)
I had in mind, at the time, to make a mini version of my layout in prints on the back of the big solid quilt. I still love that idea, but in the lull of the Dead Simple Quilt along, I veered off.
The idea came to me to make a mini quilt. Actually, three. One in solids, as originally planned.
this post?). Obviously, it took a little extra work, but so worth it!
Then came another mini - still in my palette - but done in the prints.
my very first free-motion quilting.
Lastly, what choice did I have but to do a third mini done with a solid/print combo.
And so my vision of a large solid quilt turned into . . . an autumn trio.
