My September OMG was to finally decide on a quilt for me! My last count I have completed 343 quilts. Each and every one has been gifted or donated. When I discovered that surgery was necessary and imminent I started getting organized and that was when I confirmed that I had indeed donated the last 3 quilts that I was keeping for my use. I don’t regret donating them but would have enjoyed a bundle of quilted goodness to snuggle in to this past week and a half.
I decided I needed to make a quilt to keep and my September OMG was to decide on a pattern.
I had been watching for some QAL’s that I had decided to do before I found out about my surgery.
One of these is Melissa Corey, The Happy Quilter’s
Here is the design;
The hard part was deciding on fabrics. Then I remembered I had these in my stash and had tried to use them for several different projects but kept changing my mind!
Once I actually get to start cutting fabric I will decide which fabrics are going where but I think I want to fussy cut the striped fabric for the ribbons, the blue with gold medallions will be the stars and possibly the leaves for the tulip blocks, the paisley is probably going to be the red and light blue tulips, and then that scrumptious teal color in the paisley will be used in the remaining tulips and leaves. I will play more to finalize the color placement when I can use coloured pencils and paper.
So there we go! Decision has been made and I am happy with the pattern and fabric pull. Now the question is; what do I do to keep myself occupied for the rest of September? 🥴
Thank you for stopping by to read my post. Have a wonderful weekend fondling fabric or doing anything that brings you joy! 🤔 Carol
