Some FAL action!!

Finally! I'm so excited to be working on my Colour Blocks quilt again (free pattern by Tula Pink). I started this quilt around Christmas time last year, and I've been working on it in dribs and drabs. It's the perfect quilt to do that with, since it's broken down into bite-sized sections. I've been cutting each colour as I go, so I'm not getting confused with where I'm at when I leave it for a few weeks at a time ;o) I only have a few more of the sections to piece, and then start putting the other side together as well. So. Excited.


This is the entire right hand side of the quilt - it measures 24" x about 96" (not the best photo sorry - I nearly killed myself climbing on our old rickety outdoor table taking this one.) I'm really excited about how this is coming together - I love how the different purples play together, and pick up some of the colours in the fabrics. It's not all purple by the way - there is another smaller purple section on the other side of the quilt, but the rest of it is mainly blues and neutrals, with a few pops of pink.

I must say I'm getting a wee bit nervous about the prospect of actually quilting it. And basting it. It's going to finish up at around 85" x 96" which is HUGE compared to anything I've done so far...

Hoping to get a bit more done over the weekend :o)

This is so interesting! Your colour palette of solids is beautiful! I don't know whether I'd be tackling a monster like that either!

Jessica said...

This is looking beautiful Jess! I love your colours, I have some of this range in the greens!

I really like those blocks--just enough of each to move your eye throughout the quilt. Lovely. Julierose

It is looking amazing but I don't envy you the task of yanking taht about trying to quilt it, you will have muscles of steel after ;-)

Looking fab so far! The super size is how I ended up coming to the conclusion that long arming was the only way to go with Winterkissin', have you got a place anywhere near you that will let you do your own?

Jessica said...
