Fall colors.

At least, I think they are… What do you think? Are these acceptable colors for Celebrate Color?

I had to wander around the LQS forever pulling fabrics and putting them back. Do you ever have that problem where you know what you want, but you aren’t sure what it is? Maybe that’s just me. I finally came up with these 7 fabulous fabrics in colors that are so not my usual palette. But I’m really pleased.

I love the little skull & crossbones print (halloween!) from CW’s “Gone Haunting” line and the brown print’s squiggles sort of remind me of the shape of candy corns.

This little mini-quilt was my “travel” project (i.e. doesn’t require a machine or much else in the way of materials). I’m kind of surprised at how much progress I actually made as I usually forego anything productive on vacation. Perhaps it had something to do with the crappy wifi connection in our hotel room.

Unfortunately, I ran out of the brown fabric and couldn’t find any more at my LQS (and I don’t know what it is!), so I had to add that brown polka-dotty fabric to the mix. I’m actually really disappointed, but I guess the new addition works. I knew I should have checked out the quilt store in Sebastian, FL.

I am also bummed that I didn’t complete this mini-quilt for today, but I finished up the last yo-yo last night. Now I just have to figure out how to join them… hehehehe. I’ve never done yo-yos before. (In fact, I actually had to ask Alexis for advice since she has done them before.) I found it strangely cathartic. Also easily picked up and put down which is very important when you take a baby on vacation.

Next week I hope to show you both this quilt and the next one in the works for mini-quilt Monday #3!

    This looks amazing! I can’t wait to see how you piece the yo-yos together! Those fabrics are perfect for Celebrate Color!
