I’ve been on a color kick, yes?
I have to be completely honest. I hated did not like this quilt as I was making it! Here’s the reason: I did something I normally don’t do and used super cheap fabric for this quilt. I had the vision in my brain and headed to Joann’s, with my side kick in tow, and was determined to find all my fabrics right then and there. That’s where my problem was. I didn’t leave that store until I had all the colors! There were not enough solid colors in stock to make it right, so we headed to their calico print section, which can be a problem. Those fabrics are cheap for a reason!
I love it!
I’m still am not excited about the yellow…The print is too big compared to the others and the color hue is a little off. But all the other colors are so great, I can make my brain overlook it 🙂 I love the black polka dot in the centers tying them all together. And I’m happy that I chose it for the binding too!
As far as quilts go, this one was on the easier side to put together. I got the blocks down to about only 2 hours each which I think is pretty decent considering the size of this thing 🙂
