Grab your button ( the code is on the left) , the Fractured QAL starts next week!
I have decided to go with the purple and yellow color scheme. The quilt is going to be for a friend who attended James Madison University. his son started at JMU this month so he's all into the purple and gold.
The quilt will be half commercial prints and half hand dyed fabrics. I'm also making mine from fat quarters instead of full fabric widths. I've got all of the fabrics pulled and ironed.
I made a test block and fat quarters are going to work just fine. I am also contemplating making a king sized quilt. The quilt in the book is 7 blocks in 8 rows. King size will be 9 blocks in 8 rows. We will see how it goes. I can make it any size so I will sew blocks until I get tired of them.
Get ready for next week. Each Friday, September - November, I'll have a link box where you can link a photo of your quilt in progress. Every Monday I will draw a name from the participants and send that person a fat quarter of hand dyed fabric.
I've also set up a Flickr Group where you can share your photos.
