I took the process pledge

When I can grab a few minutes at the computer and escape from stripping wallpaper, cleaning etc at the new house (pic shows youngest daughter hard at work!) I have been working my way down the list of quilts at Amys Quilt Festival (if you have not yet found your way there, there is a link on the right) and at Marit's Blog I came across the Process Pledge.  The idea is that those of us who blog about our quilts (and other crafts) should make a pledge to share more about our thoughts and the process of designing and making our quilts.  I decided to join in as I always love to read about other stitchers creation processes and it will hopefully prove motivating for me as well perhaps being interesting/useful for any other crafters out there.

I am just about to start a new quilt which is to be for my son and his partner.  I have found a pattern called 'In the Pink' which is being offered as a block of the month by Esther Aliu and which features both piecing and applique.  I have been given a free reign to create this quilt as regards pattern but they would like it to feature 'peacock' colours so I will have to change the colours in the pattern.  I would also like to try and use fabrics from my stash rather than buying new ones (that will be a first if it happens!).  At the moment I am trying to decide on the colours and the applique method but I probably won't actually start sewing until after we move.  I'm itching to get started though ............perhaps I will find time to at least select the fabrics.................

  1. 'Peacock' colours sound lovely, so vibrant. I will check out that BOM link often, I maybe tempted when I have finished the list of items to sew.
