Color My World was the 2021 BOM at the Quilt Show, designed by Wendy Williams I was impressed that Linda had it finished to bring to quilt in January--my 2021 BOM is still in block form.

Along Came Quilting and connected with Sharla. I wanted to do an all blue quilt--described to her what I wanted, she texted back some photos of fabrics, and she had a short stack of bolts to choose from by the time I went to the store to peer at the fabrics from behind a taped line through the open door (this was waay back when when we were being told NOT to mask because masks were for the medical professionals). Not an optimal way to purchase fabrics but better than on my computer monitor. I think we did better than OK. But I did learn, the hard way, that Grunge doesn't have anyting on the selvedge to indicate the colorway, and its hard to match up later if you didn't get the color name off the boltend when purchasing the first time. Luckily, when I needed more, Kim was able to take my swatch into the store and match the bolt, give me the name, and then I could order still more again online from Willow Creek, as I emptied the bolt at ACQ. Susie's Magic Binding last year when I finished piecing the top, so it went quite quickly for a king size quilt. I love that method. presoak all the fabrics, so I don't expect it to have much shrink from washing--it's been cold here so it went straight on the bed (our other quilt had silk batting and I was a little chilly some nights) where it has been keeping me perfectly warm. There is room for some more shrink though, so it will be OK either way.
