I have decided I like the fun of choosing fabrics, cutting and piecing them, but hate the basting with a vengeance and am not too fussed on the quilting process either. Hence I have about 4 quilts waiting to be quilted. Part of me feels I should just send them off to be quilted, but I figure I paid a small country's GDP for my machine so I should use it to its full potential. However, I do love sitting in the evenings and hand-stitching the binding on. Is anyone else have a favorite part of the process?
I have joined Melissa's Starburst QAL as I have admired her one ever since I saw it. I went to one of my fav sites Design Seeds and chose a different color palette to what I normally go with.
I am totally in love with Simply Color and ordered a bunch of it from Pink Castle Fabrics. It is even more lovely up close. So my palette was loosely based on some of the colors from this range. I had the orange in there to start with but it looked too busy so I took it out and this is what I have ended up with.
