Woo Hoo! It came! I fell in love with the quilt in the "Quilters Newsletter" cover for Feb/Mar and ordered the pattern. It's one of the few times I love the quilt on the cover and actually has a pattern.
As I was going through the directions, the auther said she used 80 different fabrics in nine different color families! The blocks have up to 121 pieces with the border having 348 pieces.
It's not the applique that will kill me since there aren't any leaves, but finding fabric.
I was online looking at fabric and realized that this was going to be really hard. If you can't actually look at the fabric, it's hard to see what it is. And remember my gripe about fabric having medium shades? Every fat quarter set I looked at was nothing but MEDIUM fabric! I also ran into SAME FLOWER different line and SAME DESIGN w/different color within a line. So much for buying a fat quarter set(s).
I don't need yards, just fat eights and quarters so that's easy. It's just a quilt that I will have to pick up fabric as I go.
If you know of any online quilt shop that has a lot of fabric (not Hancock of Paducah or Fat Quarter store as I've looked) let me know.
