Garden Chevrons is my next retreat project that I am going to get prepped.
This project is from Fons and Porter "Quilty" magazine, the March/April 2015 issue.
I had made a baby quilt from this magazine so I figure if I can find more than one pattern in a magazine that I want to make, it is well worth it. You can find that baby quilt here.
Anyways, I had received a jelly roll from a friend (Sandy) called Bunny Tales by Robert Kaufman and I am going to use it for the printed strips.
I will need to make my shopping list of solids to add to this quilt AND this quilt is paper pieced, so I will have to run copies of all the blocks.
So....I am thinking this quilt might just be easy peasy and very do-able at a retreat along with my other long-term projects.
First before I go shopping, I may pull a few more prints from my 30's collections.
Then my shopping list consists of;
3/8 yard each of red, blue, lavender, yellow, green, peach and aqua
1/2 yard navy solid for block centers
1/2 yard aqua solid for border
5/8 yard aqua print for binding
3 1/2 yards backing fabric (ooh...I'll have to find something unique)
Now those colors are subject to change depending on what I see when I go shopping AND what I find to be more predominate in my jelly roll.
Ok.....now to start thinking about retreat #3's new project that needs to be prepped.
