Weekend Warrior Day 1

My warrior project for the next few weekends is a quilt that I have been wanting to make for awhile. It reminds me of times past, but with a flair of modern. I will be making this pattern but with different colors:

I will be using a mix of blues, pinks, and greys. I hope to finish the top in 3 weekends or less.

The last time I made a quilt my oldest daughter was around 4 years old. She is now 12 working on 13. So it's been some time since I have worked on a quilting project. I have since become much more refined in my sewing skills and it shows! I am excited to finish this project, hopefully to become a family heir loom.

Here are the fabrics that I am going to use:
Picking fabrics for me was a lot of fun! For those of you that know me, you know that I love fabric, so shopping for some new lovelies wasn't hard for me at all! It's so fun to watch the color palette start to move with each added fabric.

next came the cutting. I do not remember this process to be so long and tiring, this was the one part I am happy to be done with!

As I started to sew the pieces together I was reminded about how much I truly love to create and what joy it brings me! I hope that you all can find something fun to do that will get your creativity flowing! Until tomorrow, take care.
