My good friend Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs is hosting a quilt along for her Board & Batten pattern. The quilt along starts today (eek), so over the weekend I realized it was time to make my fabric selections so that I will be ready to start. You can get all of the details about the Board & Batten quilt along on Cheryl’s website.
I’m going to be making the baby size (40″ x 48″) during the quilt along, and I decided to go as fully “scrappy” as I can get. I’m going to use this beautiful rainbow of 30 Tula Pink True Colors prints, and you can bet that I’ll be doing everything I can to arrange the fabric in rainbow order across the quilt top.
The big question with such a bright rainbow is what to pair with the prints as a background. I went to my large yardage stash and considered several options: white, off-white, light gray, medium gray… but in the end I was smitten with how Kona Purple makes the colors sing.
If you are interested, there’s still plenty of time for you to decide to sew along with us: Board & Batten quilt along. I know I am excited to turn these fabrics into a baby quilt!
