It’s time to choose fabrics for another quilt. It’s one of the hardest/funnest parts. For some reason it is so much easier when I’m helping someone else choose their fabrics.
These fabrics are for our new quilting class, the Buzz Saw Quilt. I got especially excited when I realized that the Banksy print over our couch has a buzz saw in it AND we could definitely use a bigger quilt for the couch. It couldn’t be more perfect.
After a lot of thinking, I’ve decided to do a very tonal quilt in dark and light greens. Our couch is dark espresso brown and there are touches of dark green in the room, including curtains in one of Tula Pink’s scalloped Neptune fabrics.
All my green fat quarters are now pre-washed and I’m ready to get started on yet another quilt. I think I’m going for the world record of ‘most quilts on the go’!

I love those fabrics. I am using some of the same ones at the moment. 🙂
I love the fabrics you chose. They’ll look awesome against your couch 🙂
That quilt will be beautiful…but I bet I could give you a run for your money for “most quilts on the go” 🙂
Hooray for getting a glimpse of your home! Great couch and I LOVE the lamp!
miriam – are you making a quilt as well?
peanut – thanks! my colour palette feels a bit ‘boring’, but i think it’s going to look great in this room
katrina – how many do you have on the go right now?
michelle – i bought that lamp base at the habitat for humanity re:store. i made the lampshade myself. i went through a little lampshade making phase.
