Ok, so I lied. Well I didn’t mean to..but I changed my mind.

I’m planning on using the blocks to make a king-sized quilt for my bedroom. I wanted deeper/warmer/richer colors…less pastelly (is that a word?!). Anyhoo…These are the fabrics I chose. Mostly from Anna Maria Horner with a few others added in. I can’t wait to see it all together in a quilt! Here are my inspiration pictures:

Ahhhhh, how happy does this new fabric make me?! Sooooo happy! So springy and uplifting. All but the bottom fabric is Heather Bailey’s OOP Fresh Cut line.
