I turned to my book, Becoming a Confident Quilter, for a pattern that would work well for an assortment of fabrics, and I chose to make my Less is More pattern. It's one of my favorites in the book, and it comes together very quickly. I sorted my fabrics by color, and then got to work, chopping them up.
As I sewed, I had a good feeling about this quilt top. I had a feeling I was going to love it, and as I placed the blocks up on my design wall, I couldn't help but grin. The blocks were fantastic. The prints shined through the piecing really beautifully, and the rich, saturated colors popped from my background fabric, which is a new shade of Kona called Silver, which I am loving right now!
And if you are salivating over these fabrics, then you need to make sure scroll to the bottom of this post to enter a giveaway to win a stack of 10 Sun Prints fat quarters and a copy of her new Color Plus pattern! One lucky winner will be drawn on Monday morning.
