So, for some crazy reason, I decided to join another BOM over at Pile O' Fabric. It's a skill builder which is perfect, and beyond that, it is a quilt as you go, which is even more awesome! The only problem is that I'm a little torn about starting it. I have soooo much on my plate, but at the same time these things are a really nice escape for me. Since it is a free block of the month I figure I will, at the very least, read all the instructions, try out a couple of new techniques, and then go from there.
Knowing that I needed a butt load (yes, that is the technical term) of fabric for this quilt along, I stopped at my local JoAnn's since they are getting ready to close at the end of the month. Their sales were crazy-- nearly all their fabrics were 75% off-- so I took some time to find some stuff that worked. I honestly can't decide if I love or hate my selections, and I suspect I won't be able to tell until after I start assembling, but at least if I hate it the fabric didn't set me back too much... :o)
Here are my selections. I'd love to hear what people think... for better or worse!
