Christmas QAL 2012 pt 2
So I decided that I am going to make the mystery quilt. At first I was thinking....hmmm a Christmas quilt..I am already working on one do I need another one? Really how many Christmas themed quilts does one person need? I don't know maybe I need 50 and I only have one UFO...LOL Or maybe 1 is already too much...oh my!!
However, I then decided that maybe I would since it doesn't have to be a quilt maybe I could turn it into a wall hanging or a table cloth or something like that. I don't know if that will be a possibility since it is a mystery quilt and I don;t know what it is going to look like.
I figure I can pick my fabric and have it ready to go and when the time comes that there are more clues about what it is going to look like then I can cut it all up and start. It isn't race just a fun time to work on Christmas projects so all should be okay.
Okay so for the quilt it is suppose to be scrappy, but since all my Christmas fabric is brand new so kinda scrappy kinda not.....We need a background colour, light, medium and dark.....which is the hard part I am horrible at picking fabric to go together!
I decided on white for the background since what is lighter than white...light white...?? For my light I have this pretty tan/gold fabric with stars that I thought might work well. For the medium I have this red/black fabric that I love, but I don't think it will work and then just a plain green. Hmmm I don't love this combo, but it is okay
What about this?? Too Busy...too green on green..too blah
Okay back to the stash to pick some new options for the dark and medium....I have blues...hmmmm blues yes blues would be great....
You might be thinking wow all she has done is picked or almost picked fabric. You are right! I also got distracted and started working on my Feb block for the we bee learning bee....oops. In addition to that Mr.Pickles was suppose to be home at 3 for lunch. I decided to be stupid and try and make Pork Tenderloin en Croute. I just finished up everything and now I am waiting for him to call and say he is on is way home before i start to cook the sucker in the oven..........its now 4pm by the way....I think lunch is now going to be dinner!
