Starting a New Quilt

 I have had a pile of fabric sitting in my studio for about a year just waiting to be cut into.  I decided today was the day!  I am meeting some friends soon for a day of sewing so I thought I would have this project cut so I could assemble it then.



 Here are the focus fabrics and colors of the quilt.  I thought they would be a fun spring project.





The Jack in the Pulpit fabric is by Jane Sassaman from her older Sunshine and Shadows line.

This colorway is not something I would normally work in but as a shade gardner, I just love this print and couldn't resist when I saw a bunch of it for sale at a deep discount.







I snatched up some of this fabric when it first came out but in the blue colorway.  Here is a wall hanging I made that hangs in my hallway.  It is a piece I have always loved.









Well, back to cutting.  Hopefully next week I will have a finished top to share with you!




Linking up with Really Random Thursday, and Whoop Whoop Fridays.

That fabric is just incredible - I haven't seen it before and I really love it in the blue colourway and what you've done with that wall hanging. I've pinned the fabric for future reference! :)
