I'm a sucker for a good quilt-a-long...but I usually jump on the bandwagon long after they have finished. Not this time! I decided to join Christa Quilt's String of Pearls Quilt-a-Long last week - in enough time to gather my fabrics and start on time!
Of course you can use whatever fabrics you want, but the Quilt-A-Long quilt really caught my eye so I decided I wanted to use Pearl Bracelets by Lizzy House too. I have a small stash of PB, but not enough for the Q-a-L, so ordered the Fat Eighth starter bundle that Christa put together (great idea, Christa!) Perfect! Just enough of each color with a little left over for my scrap basket. She's also got kits for the entire quilt for sale, but I already had my two solids for the background - Kona Pepper and Medium Gray.
And I'm ready to go!
cutting instructions today and since I was home, I cut out my Pearl Bracelet squares and the strips for the scrappy binding. How colorful are these? I love it!
There's still plenty of time if you want to join in!
