Project Spectrum Plan
My April Project Spectrum quilt will use these fabrics. I will use the frayed edge technique like the bulls-eye blocks similar to those that Holly just gave away. The actual pattern and inspiration are from McCall's Quilting & called Blooming Rose. I am making them along with Tambo. I was so happy to find the "oranges" fabric in my bright citrus value this past weekend. Previously I had only found lemons, limes and a print that has both oranges and bananas. (I could have used the banana one if it also had apples - and played with an old ditty that I used to sing in school. If you know what I am talking about, chime in!) The rest of the fabrics that are showing and my light backgrounds came from my stash. I will add lime green leaves - also from my stash. That will probably also be my narrow inner border. Since I am in the stash quilt ring, I though it was important to bring that up! The backing is an orange geometric - I have enough for that to be the binding too.
I have more oranges, orangey yellows, and yellows - for a geometric quilt that only uses rectangles. (It will be nice to turn these into rectangles once I get this quilt done. - YAY Amy, get the second quilt planned before finishing the first!)
Mine sure will be different than Jeanne's quilt - terracotta never even came to my mind. (Jokingly, I still think she needs to applique one of those coyotes wearing a bandana. Not unlike this one or these. I still wonder, "what's up with that?" when I see them - I used to see them a lot when I lived in Arizona...)
