Fickle, me?

I've been thinking and rethinking my idea for 2012's Crazy Quilt Journal Project. In this post, I talked about my idea of each month representing a birth flower. But after giving this some thought, I think this will end up being a very tasteful and feminine quilt. And although there is nothing wrong with tasteful and feminine, it's just not me!!

So, I'm thinking I'm going to go for something a bit more vibrant and colourful, and have started pulling together fabrics in hot pinks, oranges and reds, with silks and sparkly bits and ethnic prints:

And with regards to the embellishment and embroidery I'm thinking BEADS and SHISHA MIRRORS and SPARKLY THINGS and SHINY THINGS and SEQUINS and RIBBONS - just generally no holds barred!

Now, doesn't that sound a lot more me??!!


  1. Yes, go for it! I like this idea much better and the colors are scrumptious! Love that elephant!

  2. Yes - definitely. But, um, there's something missing in that photo. That wobbly ribbon stuff! LOL!


  3. Fabulous fabrics...I love those colors! All of that is going to look AMAZING in a crazy quilt!

  4. Absolutely - and it'll be magnificent! What great fabrics!


I love comments! Please don't be shy :-)
