The new ‘52 Blocks’ Quilt Along starts in less than a week! Can you believe how fast the New Year is approaching?
I hope you’re as excited about these fun weekly block tutorials – tradition with a twist – as I am!
You’re probably wondering what fabrics you should be pulling from your stash to complete these blocks. Well…since some of these blocks may be made into pillows…some may be grouped together to make a smaller medallion quilt … use a few for a table runner or two…OR you could even put them all together into one use sampler – your fabric choices are pretty much endless.
I know…not much help. Since these blocks are going to be tradition blocks that you ‘see’ something in…be it a house, a tree, a cat, a mouse or even a whale…I feel that more ‘solid reading’ fabrics would work well. Now, they don’t all have to be solid but I do think that will help other’s ‘see’ the special twist we’re trying to highlight.
Here are the fabrics I pulled initially for my blocks. I’m sure I’ll add to this throughout the year and I’m also sure I won’t use everything I pulled. But it a great place to start.
