Then I emailed her this picture of Tracey Jay's wonderful French General quilt which I had been drooling over and suggested I make the quilt something along these lines. And she said yes. Kerching!
I then needed to work out what colour to use for sashing. After some auditioning with my Kona colour card, I ended up with this palette. The main sashing will be in charcoal with skinny strips of amber, coral, candy green, dusty peach and ash framing each square or rectangle of fabric. I have to say that the colours look much prettier on the card than in this mosaic but she was happy with them. Triple Kerching. And by the way, I don't mean money, kerching, I mean, I am going to enjoy making this quilt, kerching.
And thank you all for adding links to your quilts and blocks, it's been fun hopping around and seeing who made what, visiting some new blogs and flickrstreams and finding some new inspiration and I know some of you have been doing the same too and sharing the lurve. Sorry if I called some of you numpties - by the time we got to the second round of links, there were no numpties - this is now a numpty free blog. For the time being anyway.
