When I started quilting a couple years ago the first book I purchased was “Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts” and I immediately fell in love with this quilt.
But at that point my stash was non existent and while you can purchase a fabric bundle specifically for this project from Purl Soho I wanted to choose the fabrics myself. Needless to say that’s a rather spendy proposition.
Then I saw this version and thought maybe I could make one out of blues.
After purchasing about 7 different blues I realized I didn’t love blue that much and I decided to shelve this project indefinitely. Fast forward about a year and I saw this version.
It made me realize I didn’t need to make a color wheel I could use a collection of cohesive fabrics and make a wheel that is just as beautiful as the rainbow. But I still didn’t have FIFTY TWO different fabrics that I loved and that worked together.
Fast forward another year and I started to see all these project made with Joel Dewberry’s Modern Meadow and started to fall in love with it. Ultimately I decided it would be perfect for a wheel quilt and I think you will agree
I’ve actually finished all four arcs and was hoping to work on assembling the rest but when I went to JoAnn’s they didn’t have any navy blue Kona cotton :(. They normally stock it so I’m not sure why they don’t have it right now. I need almost 8 yards and I’ve got a couple 40% off coupons so I’m going to put this project on hold and go back this weekend to see if they’ve gotten any in stock.
