In case you haven’t heard, McCall’s Quilting is going to Ireland next year…and I get to go, too! I’m soooo excited! The trip is June1-11, 2012, so I thought it’d help me wait until next June if I got started on an Ireland-themed quilt now. I’m going to be making one block per month for the next year, and all of the blocks are going to have some sort of Irish connection. Naturally I decided to make my quilt from an array of green fabrics. Here’s the first group I’ve pulled together.
My first block is supposed to be done by July 31st if I’m going to stick to my plan, so I’d better get sewing! I’ve chosen a block called Lucky Clover which has 4 or 5 fabrics depending on what I want to do, so I need to pick which fabrics to use first. I’m not sure that I want to use the muddier shades of green, ‘guess I’ll have to wait and see. I’ll post a photo of my first block here on Monday. Yippee!! Ireland!! Woot!!
