When I decided to go to Amy's retreat for a second year I had some experience behind me and decided that I would limit the projects I brought with me and that I wouldn't take on more than a couple new projects. I get easily back logged!!! If you know what I mean. I'm so behind that I don't even want to think about it. I just move forward and do the best I can. So.... anyway...
When my friends tried to talk me in to signing up for the mystery quilt I first said "NO." But to their credit, they kept asking me. Rae Ann reminded me how much I love civil war reproductions and so, at the very last possible minute I committed myself to joining the exchange.
We each had to purchase 1 1/4 yard cuts of 3 assigned colors and 1 1/4 yards of two background prints. My color was GOLD, Rae Ann's was GREEN and Diana's was TEAL. I'm pretty sure Susann did the exchange too, but I can't remember what color she was given.
Here's a look see at the fabric we all cut. Amy and her girls put together the kits for everyone that signed up. I counted 24 kits. WOW!
I'm excited to get started on the quilt once I decide and once the wedding plans are done. I'm thinking my life is too busy, maybe it won't be until schools out before I can concentrate on this wonderful quilt.
I know many of you may have seen these two quilts already but for those who haven't here they are. I have to say I am so very pleased that I decided to sign up for this exchange. I might have broken down in tears of sadness.
I love everything about these two quilts and it's going to be difficult deciding which one to make.
What a dilemma!!!
Wish me luck on deciding which one to make.....
Maybe I'll have to make both... one day.....
I certainly have enough fabric in my stash to make a second one. lol.
