Stash n' Organic Vintage Quilt

I am digging into my stash and finding sultry vintage fabrics, solid colors and soft pretty petal styles of fabric to go with this collection. I have an awesome new pattern on the drawing sheet! This is what got me excited; imagine these fabrics together in one quilt?
 These lovely fat quarters are what I've been waiting for to arrive. Its a great little bundle from Miscellany.


I've got some ideas, like maybe pinwheels or applique something? I work with the pattern in my head & on paper until I'm ready to proceed! What do these selections make you think?


But then I think piecing might be just the cat's meow for these and the vintage fabrics I'm picking out.



Its the start of a brand new idea and you never know for sure until you are well into it as to whether you've got something special. I use snippets of the prints and copy them into my pattern. See if I like it, see if it does it for me, then I send it out to my girl friends for further comment and then eventually it goes forward.
I haven't decided on the fabric so until next time stay tuned as this develops.
Have a spooky weekend!

  1. Carli, have you ever done a kaleidoscope quilt? I'd really like to try one, but have no idea where to start. Check these out by my friend in Australia: http://www.flickr.com/photos/8332387@N02/6032218966/in/photostream

  2. No Kaleidoscope quilts. This is an interesting link. We have different ideas of what makes a kaleidoscope. This link is a stack and whack version, lovely work!
