A work in progress....

A sneak peek of a quilt I'm working on at the moment. I'm using a jelly roll of Bonnie & Camille's "Bliss" fabrics with the addition of some yardage of 4 solids. This quilt incorporates 3 things I have not worked with before:
  • Designing a quilt for a jelly roll.
  • Using only 1 fabric line. ( I usually like to combine fabrics from different lines)
  • Incorporating solids into a design. The only solid I've ever used is white!
I'm really enjoying the process and just love this Bliss line which seems to be increasingly hard to find online. I love the challenge of designing a quilt from scratch as well which really gives my brain a workout.

good idea to try new stuff. it keeps things interesting you know? and the solids always help to keep the other fabrics in balance I find. Have fun!
