The Colorful Quilt

This is going to be my next project. The pattern is by Jaqueline De Jonge. I have had the pattern for about 3 years and paid 50.00 for it in Paducah, when I went to the quilt deal. I just had to have it and I will be disappointed if I don't make it. I don't pay that kind of money ever!! for a pattern. I can see why she charged that much when I open it.

 So far I have cut out all the pattern blocks. It took like forever. Ther are eight large blocks with all sorts of rings and things.

Here is one sheet of patterns. Some will be paper pieced and the borders and area in-between will just be plain blocks.

Here you can see all the blocks cut and pinned together and another copy of the pattern to refer to as I make the blocks. It's like a road map lol.  I did a mirror image of the of the quilt image so I can have a reference as the blocks will come out mirror image.

 These are some fabrics I pulled and more will probably be added as I go along. It will not be the same coloration as the orginal. I feel like all the colors on the pattern kinda  just run together and there is not enough dark to emphasise the beautiful blocks and all the work that went into them.

I will be working on A block and will keep the blog udated as I go along.
