New Project

Are you working on a new project today?  

My BFF Robin tempted me a few weeks ago with a Missouri Star Quilt Co. tutorial called
"Crosswalk".  Jenny had a really cute fabric she was cutting up so I made it my mission to
get something cute too.  I think Robin might be using strips from her stash :)

It's a really easy quilt to collect fabrics for.  You need 1 jelly roll, 2 5 inch charm packs (or cut your own)  a white to match your charm pack and then a border print.    I found this "Gooseberry" jelly roll on my last trip to Florida and what's nice is the shop had yardage laid out with it so I grabbed some polkas (naturally) and instead of buying charm packs, I opted to use Kona Snow since I have an entire bolt.

I did all my strip sewing and cutting.........

Started attaching the side triangles...............

Here's the unit.....just trim off the sides.  And then threw a few up on the design wall to see how I like the look.   I'm thinking I like it a lot.

I find this fabric line to be reminiscent of a Bonnie and Camille collection.  The scallops, the dots, a large floral pint....and even the same colorway.   Irregardless, I like it and as will be going back to sewing more units.

Yes, really cute blocks and does look somewhat like "Bonnie & Camille". I love all their fabrics though! This looks like a great top in the making Peg.
