Something Big


After working on cuffs for so long, I now find myself starting something huge. This is inspired by a quilt in Kaffe Fassett's book Passionate Patchwork
His quilt is done with big florals but I don't have a large stash of florals so I went with dots, which I have been collecting. I still have to find fabric for the solid block that will go between the 16 patches. The one I have up there right now doesn't work for me and I don't have enough of it anyway. Oh my, I guess there will be a trip to the fabric store.

I am just back from a trip to the fabric store. My paltry little stack put me back $100. Every fabric I touched was $9.50 and up. Yikes. So good luck with that shopping trip.

BIG? How BIG?

Looks like fun! I'll be we see the fabric in that one block used for some other element further along. I look forward to seeing this one grow.
