The next quilt.............

I finally started the layout of this quilt.  I think I ended up with 13 fabrics.  They are all Kaffe collective (Kaffe, Philip and Brandon).  I had to cut a bunch more 4.5" x 8.5" rectangles yesterday and added one fabric to my original group.  Then I had to cut the 4.5" squares to fill in the top and bottom.

Last night I got the first six columns sewn together.  There are 7 left to sew and this should come out about 52" x 72".  It has 2 borders in the magazine so I'll consider that too.   I used some of the same fabrics as the one in the magazine and added some of my favorites to the group.  One of them may be the outer border.

I went back and edited yesterday's post with the size and number of half hexagons used.  I try to remember to do that when I'm writing the post but sometimes forget.

You've done it again, with an awesome combination of fabrics. From hexagons to rectangles it's been an exciting week to see.

This is a really pretty quilt. I’m not familiar with most of these fabrics, even though I recognize the style as Kaffe.
