The other day I listed some of the quilting projects I want to do, so what do I go and do? I go and join Nicole in her 2 colour quilt challenge. I'm not sure why I am doing this as I am a novice quilter and I haven't really got the time but I thought it would be a good idea at the time. As you may have realised other than knitting socks, knitting has gone out of the window (having said that I bought the cobblestone pullover for The Oh! Bearded One from Interweave Press this evening). Quilting has taken over! Big Time!!!
The idea of the challenge is to make a quilt from just 2 colours of fabric by August 1st. This is a good deadline for me as I go out to the Czech Republic on July 19th and I would like to take this out to the Czech female Scout Leader as I know she would really appreciate it. This gives me the impetus to get going on it and get it finished.
I've ordered the basic fabric from Cottonpatch which will take a week so this gives me time to decide what pattern I will use. The blocks need to be simple to make and I will machine quilt it, again, very simply.
I am quite excited about this!
