In keeping with my love of all things "in the beginning stages" I have been having a hoot of a time in the Make and Do Room pulling out fabrics from my stash and putting together a small collection for Project X.
I'm veering towards a reddish, mustard earthy colour combination, and my idea for the design is to make a sampler quilt. The choice of more vibrant and contemporary fabrics will make it look very different to a traditional sampler quilt giving it a modern twist.
These are the fabrics chosen for the first block. The leaf design is a Liberty fabric that has been sitting in my stash for a number of years, waiting for such an occasion to come out and play. I just love it!
I've drawn up the first block and made plastic templates for each different shape. Here's a handy hint: chopping mats from the $2 shop - they do a fabulous job and are finer than template plastic so easier to cut through.
