Random Thoughts and Inspiration

I did some work on sashing the blocks for the paintbox quilt that the Atlanta Modern Quilt Guild is donating to the upcoming inagural show for the Southeastern Quilt and Textile Museum, and got to thinking about the story of the quilt. Part of that was documenting “the story” of the quilt, and who all has worked on it, so I had to look up a couple names. Well, of course once I fell down the internet rabbit hole I couldn’t get out, and low and behold, looky what I found!

I confess to having bought 2 layer cakes recently. One was a William Morris print collection, which I have a inexplicable attraction to (I also have the book William Morris in Applique, which I plan on making something from one day), and the other is a Moda Origins layer cake I got from Tiny Stitches, one of my LQS. I think I will use my Origins for this, since I was trolling the Bake Shop for a pattern but wasn’t particularly inspired by any of the layer cakes. I think I’ll pair it with a clean white accent fabric, and some of the Lime “grunge” I picked up.

The Quilt Along starts on November, and a new block will be posted every other Tuesday. Come join in!
