First, the fabric.
This is always the juicy part isn't it? I LOVE fabric shopping and I can't help it if I spend a little too much at fabric stores. I received a Groupon for Whipstitch here in Atlanta and so off I went to thier Etsy store to choose out some fabrics!
Here is what we chose:
Recognize those? Amy Butler, Soul Blossom. I've always loved these fabrics, and I am going to combine them with Kona's White and make tube quilt blocks with them.
If you are not familiar with tube quilting, here is a video for you to watch:
This is a new technique to me but I LOVE the look. Want to see what it should end up looking like pattern wise? Look how beautiful it ends up looking.
I plan to back it with Amy Butlers Laurel Dots but that will be a ways out at this point! So stay tuned as you'll see the progress of Emma's Quilt! (Or it may get renamed as Karen's Quilt if I decide parting with it isn't going to happen!)
