I’m Going to Quilt Along with Christa

Yesterday while reading through the many blogs I follow I found a link to a Quilt Along by Christa over at Christa Quilts!

Starting June 5th she is going to start her 6th Quilt Along and will be making a lovely quilt entitled String of Pearls. Her version will be made using the lovely Pearl Bracelets fabric line by Lizzy House. Although I love these fabrics I really can’t justify buying any more fabrics at the moment and so I am going to dig into my stash and use something I have to hand. I have narrowed it down to three main choices.

My first idea was to use the Stonehenge Undersea Adventure line by Linda Luduvico for Northcott fabrics and make another quilt for my boys. I really love the colours in these fabrics and I could see a little groups of fish swimimng popping up all over my quilt.

While I really enjoy sewing for my boys I would also like to make more for myself as well so I am considering making either a fun summery version using some fabrics from my stash of Snap Pop by Sandy Gervais for Moda:

or going for something alittle more opulent and using fabrics from the Garden Party line by Pillow and Maxfield for Michael Miller Fabrics:

While the colour palette of the last selection is more limited I really adore the richness of these colours and would be very tempted to use them with an oakshott background for a really luxurious finish.

Decisions, decisions! Here’s hoping I make one soon.
