A Change of Plans
The other day I went to cut up my fabric for my AMH Irish Chain Quilt, and I couldn't.
I had my plan ready, measurements and quantities required, and then just froze. Subconsciously my mind just wouldn't let me do it. Figuring I'd do it another day, I packed my lovely pile of fabrics away.
Over the weekend I was randomly browsing Instagram when I came across this quilt, and my first thought was how much I liked it, my second was I want to do this with my AMH fabrics. The pattern was duly purchased, thank goodness for instant PDF downloads. That afternoon the cutting and sub cutting of my precious AMH stash started - no qualms, straight into it. I am loving the look so far of the first couple of blocks I have made, however I am also wondering if I keep it solely as an AMH quilt or add some of my favourites by Julianna Horner, Tula Pink, Alison Glass, Amy Butler and Lizzy House to make it that little more eclectically colourful and bohemian.
When I have a few more blocks made up, I'll share some photos. Fingers crossed it works!!
