I started a blog about this quilt awhile ago.
Sunday afternoon I was able to put some time into at least getting a start on it. I thought I would wash and iron all the fabric. It only takes about 10 minutes tops to do it and while the fabric was drying, I washed up the breakfast dishes.
Then I noticed the soft yellow of the lion and it seemed to "pop" off the fabric and say try me, try me!
I was off on a search to my "fabric/sewing room" (I store all my fabric upstairs in a cupboard.)
I was lucky. I found some in a bag that was earmarked for another project.
Soft yellow with little wee hearts in a darker yellow on it. Much better with all these other fabrics..........
I cut it up into 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" blocks and then cut the two turquoise fabrics that will be in the other four blocks. I redesigned them from the original pattern. I'm doing something a little simpler. I hope I am anyway.
I cut all the fabric and sewed it together. Oh, my gosh, it was awful! I didn't like it at all. The green is, is, is..............no words can describe it!
Back to the drawing board! Or flannel wall in my case.
