Truthfully, kaleidoscope quilts have intimidated me because they seem complicated, what with all those dang seams meeting up in the centre and bias seams and strangely-angled triangles and what not and oh man as I write that out I realize those excuses are just plain silly. SILLY, I say! I need to get over my Quilter's Impostor Syndrome, stat!
This QAL is billed as being beginner-friendly, and looking at the block Elizabeth posted here, I totally agree (and again ask myself what the L my PROBLEM is with DOUBTING my Quilty Awesomeness), so if you've been waffling about joining, stop it! Come and join in the fun!
I think I'm going to go scrappy but with a controlled colour palette for this quilt. I think. Ask me tomorrow; I'll probably have changed my mind. Choosing fabric is by far my most favourite part of planning a quilt so I tend to stretch out the experience as long as possible. Whatever I choose, it will be from ye olde stash. Because said stash is quite significant, and I've concluded that - for me - fabrics are best enjoyed sewn up into something, even if that something is given away, which this quilt will be.
I'm in too. Kaleidoscopes make awesome quilts. You.Can.Do.It!ReplyDelete
Sounds like an awesome plan to me! I can't wait to start seeing you pull some fabrics together! You can definitely do this quilt, I am going to break it down as much as I can, really!!ReplyDelete
Alright, alright. I'd been thinking about joining this QAL too but waffling about the commitment. Now that I see your doing it I'm totally in! If you can do this over the summer ... I can do this over the summer.ReplyDelete
Do not doubt your quilty awesomeness! And I know you can figure this out! (Hope so, because I'm going to need all the help I can get...)ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see your fabric choices.
I had *also* been waffling, as I thought I had enough stuff to do for the summer, BUT! Since so many wonderful folks are doing this, and there is a fabric line I've been wanting to buy before it disappears, I think this will be perfect!ReplyDelete
SO. I'm in, too. :)
oh... can't wait to see what you pick. :) (But don't let me join this one... I have too much already!). :)ReplyDelete
Uh, yeah, after viewing first hand your Quilty Awesomeness yesterday, I definitely think you need to get over it! I look forward to watching your kaleidoscope blocks come together!ReplyDelete
I can't resist this one, either. Will be using my new DS that I bamboozled from US and Aussie bloggy friends ;) But I should probably think of hacking down that pile of stash, too..... I guess since I already bought it it IS stash, right??ReplyDelete
