Tutorial Tuesday - QAL Style

Welcome to the next edition of Tutorial Tuesday!!  Sorry for the two week lag, but I got a late start on the sharing (originally thinking that I would have one long post for the June quilt QAL over at Crazy Mom Quilt, but it got TOO long, TOO fast!  Let's continue.

Week 2 - What about the strings???

At first, I thought I might use YELLOW, since that's the Color of the Month for June in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  Gray and yellow go together well, but...



I've always wanted to make a quilt that I could call Running Hot and Cold.  Maybe I should use Hot Pink...



... And Orange...



... Along with YELLOW (for the RSC, as established earlier.)  That SOUNDS like a good idea, but somehow, I'm just not convinced.

And still another scrap basket, blue...



... Which would be a nice combination for a moody quilt.  I wasn't feeling the gloom of a blue and gray quilt (even though there are times when it might match my inner feelings.)

A stroke of genius came after I passed on the idea of using my bag of J's Hand Dyes...


... As well as my batik scraps...


... With the chosen Gray background and cornerstones, inspiration struck!!  I know JUST what I want to use (and I already know what I'm going to name the quilt.)

Here are the first few blocks:




It's going to be PERFECT!!!

Until next time...
Quilt Along!!!

  1. I understand how it can be difficult to make a decision on a next project. I'm participating in Amanda's QAL, too, using blue scraps. I really like your colorful blocks. I can't wait to see what you come up with for the secondary blocks and cornerstones.
