Kaleidescope Quilt Along

I definitely have WAY too many WIPs right now, and my "top secrect project" is coming along well but I only have 3 more weeks to get that beast finished, yikes! However.... I've decided to participate in this new quilt along :)



She just released the details for fabric requirements on Friday - I need about 20 FQs for a large lap quilt which will measure 60" x 72" when completed. Fortunately the cutting instructions don't come out until the 23rd, so I have time to pick out my fabrics!

I'm not 100% sure yet, but I was thinking of using my full fat quarter collection of Joel Dewberry's Aviary 2


The only print I don't have of this collection is the black birds, and I don't like the black damask print with the rest of the grey/yellow colorway so I'll be leaving that out too. That gives me 22 FQ's so I'll have to decide who will be left out if I do decide to go with this bundle. Its SO pretty and will be really hard for me to cut into it haha but hopefully I can convince myself to do it, or find something else in my stash I'd be willing to cut up for this project :)

Either way... stay tuned for progress updates as this starts later on in the month! And if you have time and the desire, join in the fun!

That's going to be so pretty if you use the Aviary! I was picking through my stash last night trying to decide what I'm going to use for mine, but I can't pick! Like you said, at least I've got some time to make a decision.

I have a hard time cutting into beautiful fabric too. It is 'sew' hard sometimes, LOL!
