I’m still working on the Hope Valley quilt in oranges and purples. Iâ€™ve been trying my best to use only the fabrics from the fat quarter set I bought at Denyseâ€™s studio sale, but I finally had to admit that I wasnâ€™t going to have enough for the backing and binding.
So now Iâ€™m stalled for a bit while I wait for extra fabric to arrive. Turns out I needed more of the Hope Valley (and really, who can resist?) as well as more of the solids. For those whoâ€™ve asked, the solids Iâ€™ve used are all Kona cottons, in Amber, Chocolate (or maybe Coffee, I can’t remember!), Rose and Plum. The white is Kona Snow.
Anyway, I hope to be able to show you the final product soon!
Also, thanks for such a great response to the new Flickr group! I think it will be a great place for questions and answers and any other quilting discussions. Iâ€™m embarrassingly bad at answering questions that are asked here (sorry!), but I think I can be better on Flickr. Weâ€™ll see. If you have any pressing questions, head on over and post them in the discussion section of the group!
