I looked at the fabric requirements and matched them with the possibilities already existing in my fabric boxes.
Layer cake? Check. Background fabric? Almost enough.
Does almost enough stop me? NO.
If I switch the layer cake requirement to the background, I can cut color scraps to make almost enough substitution layer cake blocks.
Does closer-to-being-enough stop me? NO.
I drew up a sort-of maybe plan.
Notice the edges and corners are not complete. That is where I'll need to get even more creative and find more scraps. I can do this.
Along the way my long suffering sister puts up with some ridiculous pictures and texts.
Why did I start this?
These colors are so bizarre.
This confuses me.
I love the fabric combinations and how they play with each other.
I love the motif.
Do I love the quilt?
I almost hate to admit it, but yes.
And perhaps when it's quilted it will be a picnic blanket with bread, cheese, and wine...or a quilt to snuggle under on a snowy evening with a glass of wine...you get the idea.
