A girl with a squirrel on her head

I’m missing a girl with a squirrel on her head for the middle block. I have fabric on order and am hoping it arrives by the end of the week. The finished size of this piece is going to be approx. 45″ x 36″, the “photos” are 7 & 1/2″ square, 10 & 1/2″ with the frames. I want to quilt the negative spaces but don’t want it to take away from the “pictures”.

Not much else going on, I just needed a little hiatus from sewing and blogging. 😀

I think some had a problem envisioning what this quilt would look like, I hope I have enough here to give you a good idea. You can also see why I chose plum colours to offset the feature fabrics and how they really pop.

I’m really enjoying putting this quilt together and so far, it’s my favorite. So much so, I’ve decided to bite the bullet and cut into my treasured Tula Pink out of print fabric, Plume!

I’m not quite sure how big I’m going to grow this pattern, I’m going to keep going until I run out of fabric. 😀

The little star units were quick and easy to whip up, the joining blocks even quicker.

I’m planning to use Tula Pink’s Parisville Cameo in Sky for the focus fabric. I chose the dark purple because it would be a strong contrast with the feature fabric and the lighter purple as the wall colour which wouldn’t take away from the focus.

As a reminder, here’s the block breakkdown:
