broken

 
 
I've broken my diet. The fabric diet that is. Didn't mean too but I saw the yardage in the quilt shop and ...well...
 
Funnily enough, I had seen these on the internet but the colours are even prettier in real life.
 
I would love to make this quilt with them.
 
 
 
 
Seriously baskets and stars! Two of my favourite blocks (you know I haven't stopped loving pinwheels right?).
 
I'll probably throw in a few extras for the background fabric and perhaps the large blue floral for the backing.
 
The finished size is about 46 inches square I think so I'm going to try and make it bigger.

  1. Oh, yes! The fabric is lovely! And the quilt design is too. Good luck with all those HSTs & FGs!

  2. Lovely new project! Just the NAMES of the fabric make me love it! Strawberries, blueberries and chocolate-what's not to love. I'm headed out to a couple of new quilt shops on Tuesday, I hope to see some!

  5. Really lovely fabrics, and I do love that pattern! You know I love stars, and flying geese as well! You do use Eleanor B's geese ruler, don't you? Looking forward to seeing your finish! ---"Love"

  9. I've heard that diets are easier to stick to if you allow yourself a treat once in a while :)

  13. 46 INCHES? Yeah, I'd make it bigger too! But I love the colors and it's going to be a beautiful quilt. (I broke my fabric diet too, though until you mentioned it, I wasn't aware I was on one...) Please show us photos of how it's coming - we all love to share when one breaks a diet, right?
