Ever since I finished the Adinkra top, I have wanted to start a new quilt. My mind is racing at all the beautiful quilts I want to start. I could finish one of my many WIPs. I could start a scrap quilt to tame the scrap box. Oh but which scrap quilt. There are so many wonderful choices.
Then I come across a blog, and Rose at Threadbare Creations has just started a short and small mystery quilt-along. A small quilt is just the perfect. It will let me work on a brand new quilt, but because it is small, I will be able to quickly get to work on a WIP. If she can make a quilt in 7 days, surely I can finish it within a year, right?
It is a two fabric quilt, which means it could be a two color quilt. She used and recommends blue and white. I have blue and white quilts on my bulletin board, and while a blue and white color quilt would look great with the others, I am hoping to use a different color. I went to the Cave of Wonder and received these two fabrics. They will give me a chance to increase my red and white quilt collection.
The blue fabric is the backing for the Adinkra top. I will add a strip to make it wide enough and then it will be ready to be sandwiched.
I really like this red fabric. It might be a Walmart find, but I am not sure.
So far, I really like how it is coming together. I didn't show you the blocks in case you want to follow along too and don't want the mystery solved early.
