Progress & Give Away
Guitar Girl graduates in August, so I decided I better get back to this Joseph's Coat project and get it finished. I've been doing this as a quilt-along that Kellie organized at Don't Look Now. As you can see, I'm still arranging, and re-arranging to try to distribute the colors. I left the final 4 blocks without their outer row so that when I'm happy with the rest of the lay-out, I can custom place colors on a few blocks. In case you haven't been following my blog...scrap quilts make me anxious. I really like to have control of the colors, so this project has been a real challenge to me.
I actually had a great batik collection before I started this quilt. Some of my favorite smaller pieces got used up. Some of the bigger pieces I'm really tired of. My goal is to finish the top by the end of May and then celebrate the way that real bloggers do, with a GIVE AWAY! I'm going to cut 5" charm squares from the remaining fabrics (and throw in a few I've collected recently). Leave a comment on this post by June 7th describing what you would do with a packet of batik charm squares in these colors. Blog & link to this post and/or join as a follower for extra chances to win. And to keep your odds high, I'll add charm packs to the prize vault as the number of entries increase.
