My online friend Ruth @Charly & Ben’s Crafty Corner is hosting a Quilt Along through the Modern Quilters Ireland blog. This week is the introduction to the Rainbow Rose Quilt Along and the instructions are for fabric selection. I had a lot of fun gathering my materials!
The requirements I put on myself were to shop my stash. So the first thing I did was evaluate my background fabric options. I don’t have anything with more than 2 yards in my stash currently, so I knew I would be making the baby version which calls for 5-inch charm squares. Knowing I had several charm packs, I started with a base of the Modern Basics from Michael Miller Fabrics and then cut extra 5-inch squares from my stash to fill in the gaps as best I could.
Looking over my fabric selection, I think I might work to refine the transition from dark teal to light teal to bright blue. Hmmm.
You still have about a day to make your selections and join the link up for the Rainbow Rose QAL if you want to join me!
