Thank you to Pam for allowing me to join this blog!
I have been admiring all of your work for a few weeks now and have finally ordered the Roseville Album quilt pattern; I was tempted to order the kit as well from the website but the bright fabrics are not really me; with the help of the owner of my LQS (thanks Evy!) I chose a lovely japanese ivory fabric with etched white flowers and leaves for the background and a few FQ's of civil war fabrics in shades of pink, brown, blue and yellow-green, I then spent several hours this afternoon digging out all my scraps changing my mind and the colours several times, before I settled on a muted palette of yellows through oranges to Red with an accent of blue, now if only the pattern would hurry up and arrive I could get started!
Looking forward to making this quilt with you all
