I started out with this after being inspired by a quilt on Instagram. Right away I was second thinking those stripe blocks. I thought I could use the cheater print from the line to get the same effect but it wasn't working for me. After a quick poll on Instagram I removed the cheater print and instantly it looked a lot better to me. I'm still not loving it but I think it will work and I won't be embarrassed to say I made it.
While I was waiting for the fabric to arrive for that baby quilt I worked on the Dream Big pattern in Swell. The pattern is from Camille's first book so it counts towards my challenge. The swell fabric was tracked down for me a few years ago by an online friend and I finally got around to using it. I just need to add my boarders to this one.
The pattern calls for 3 boarders made up of two different fabrics. These are the 3 fabrics I have to choose from. I'm not sure but I'm thinking dots, flowers, dots. I really like the gingham but I'm afraid it will feel a little to picnic table cloth.
That's it for me today. Head over to Lee's and see what everyone else is up to.
