rainbowquiltfabricLet’s face it, January has sucked for me. I’ve been sick with one crazy thing or another since (literally) New Year’s. So it’s time to start a project just because it’s going to cheer me up. So I’m going to make Kathy Doughty’s Avalon Quilt from Material Obsession just because. And I’m using a rainbow of colors to do it. AND, I’m going to try to machine quilt it myself. Take that, universe!

I’ve cut out my twelve 18″-blocks, and I’ll be using some white Kona cotton for the sashing. No idea what the back will be yet.

Another big moment, I’ve remembered to log all the fabrics I’m using. From left to right:

-A fat quarter I’m fairly positive came from JoAnn Fabrics (red)
-Erin McMorris’s “Wildwood” collection for Free Spirit, E17 in Fuschia (pink)
-A Moroccan inspired orange/yellow ombre, no idea where it came from (1st orange)
-“Ginger Blossom” by Sandy Henderson for Michael Miller, “Blossom Buds” in Mustard (orange with teal)
-P&B Textiles “Sketchbook Mums” in yellow/white (1st yellow)
-Amy Butler Midwest Modern “Optic Blossom” in linen (2nd yellow)
-“Ginger Blossom” by Sandy Henderson for Michael Miller, “Bouquet Toss” in Lime (1st green)
-“Ginger Blossom” by Sandy Henderson for Michael Miller,”Tortoise Plaid” in Meadow (2nd green)
