I thought it would be fun to show you the process I went through while making this quilt. I had a specific pattern in mind when I bought this fabric from Connecting Threads, but quickly realized my math had failed me and I didn't have enough charm squares to do what I wanted to.
Fabric arrived the end of February
The fabrics I used in this quilt are in the stack on the right
I got to sketching out some designs by the beginning of April, with crayons. Oh yeah.

Hopefully in the next week I'll show you the completed quilt! I really enjoyed making this one as it was so different from most of the others I've made.
