I'm so excited to be part of the group! I've been planning what to do and hoping I could stay on track. When Debra asked if I'd like to join all of you on this journey, I knew it was just what I needed to keep me focused on both TAST and CQJP12.
I'm sorting through my silks, cottons, and linens to find pastel spring colors. My hope is I have enough without buying anything, but it may be that I don't, since pastels are a new thing for me. I'm more likely to use either neutrals or jewel tones, and definitely lots of black. Part of my stretching in the JP is to change colors!
In my mind, I have nine 9-inch blocks, surrounded by four 3-inch borders, for a total of 13 blocks. I'm making a new calendar, obviously! I have to make a trip next week, but when I get back, I'm going to start the block piecing and see how far I can get without buying any background fabrics. I use only the natural fibers in my crazy quilting. I don't like the feel of others, and I'm really looking forward to this.
I commented on some of your blog posts today, and have more to read to catch up. I do have a cq blog, but it isn't on blogspot. It's cq4fun. There also hasn't been a lot of cq the last couple of years! More embroidery.
