The plan was to start 6 new quilts this year. As of this month, I've started 4. Only one of the quilts from the plan has been started. The other 3 starts are because I couldn't resist a couple of quilt alongs and the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Sweet Treats and the Coffee Cup quilt are coming along, but I've not made any additional progress on the McCalls Mystery Quilt in quite a while.
This month, I gave into temptation and started another one of Judy Laquidara's quilt alongs. This one is called Nicole's Sofa Quilt.
Only about a third of the first set of flying geese have been made. The color in the photo is way off, the dark blue is really a bright blue, not navy. The plan is to get all of the flying geese done by Monday. Last Monday, I posted a number of color schemes I was playing around with for this project. They looked good in EQ, but when I went to pull the fabrics, none of the color schemes worked out. So, I pulled fabric, then did the mock up to reach version I'm going to make.
Pattern is Nicole's Sofa Quilt by Judy Laquidara
The border fabric drove the color choices.
When I bought this yardage, I had no idea what I was going to do with it, I just liked the bright reds and greens with the blue. This photo shows the true color of the blues much better than the shot of the flying geese.
That's it for my June NewFO. Check out all the other new projects over at Cat Patches.
