I'm going to be doing a special tutorial for a blog hop on June 12th as part of a kick-off for the SEW EZ Dresden Challenge! I was there when it happened, but I'm still pretty stunned that I have been given the opportunity to participate in this. The blog hop will be June 1st-15th, and I'll post more information about it soon. Many new people will be visiting the blog and seeing my tutorial, and I want it to be just right. I have an idea up my sleeve that looks pretty fabulous in my head, but my biggest problem is FABRIC!!! I can't decide what to use! Too bad the idea in my head doesn't have a specific color scheme. I want something really fresh and modern looking, but also that I personally love. I spent almost two hours today at a local quilt shop and couldn't make up my mind. My sweet husband kept making suggestions, and was shot down every time. Poor guy. I did a smaller version of it with the leftovers from my bargello, but without the purple. I loved it, but it needs more color.
I'm really leaning toward Joel Dewberry's Heirloom line in the Sapphire colorway. See it here. I LOVE these colors, and his designs are fabulous. If the shop I had been at today carried that line it would have been an easy decision. I also just found out that the mother of one of my best friends teaches piano to his kids. Small world, huh?
I really need to make up my mind QUICK so I can get started on this project and have it done by June 12th.
