Blackbird meets Elizabeth

I have been bitten by the "Elizabeth" bug!! My friend and coworker Lisa made the most beautiful version that she posted on her blog. I have wanted to make this quilt even before I saw Lisa's version, but now I'm obsessed! I thought about what beautiful fabrics I would pick and decided to use my collection of Blackbird design fabrics. I have some Rhubard and Ginger which I wanted to use and then I pulled some Harvest Home from a fat quarter bundle and then just added random pieces from more recent groups. They all seem to be happy with each other. I have managed to get all the cutting finished this afternoon, so before I go to work later I will maybe get some sewing started. I have many otherprojects that I SHOULD be giving my attention to but Elizabeth is calling and who am I to ignore her. I am anxious to see how well all the fabrics work together in the quilt. I'm sure that I will be pleased..oh I hope so!!
"Elizabeth" is designed by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company.
When I have a few pieces together I will post again so you can watch the progress.
Oh and I'm keeping up with the Summer Nine Patch Project as well.
Until we meet again.... K
