I tried to pull from my stash, but the fabric directions were to have lights and darks, and my lights kept becoming mediums. So, I went shopping and found these two fabrics at Addie's. Grunge Ruby Red and Kona Espresso (a dark dark brown). By this time I had the initial cutting directions, so I thought I might have those large solid rectangles to have fun with the quilting.
We are are in progress, lined up in the hotel hallway. It was ridiculous how much it felt like a race, to get each step done before the next step was released.
And then the real fun began. I channeled my inner Jodi Robinson, and used designs from her Modern Simplicity book. It has been my number one modern quilting resource for a long long time, and then about 18 months ago I got to take classes with her! Great fun.
