A friend of mine brought it back from Peru. I think it's the colourways that have had me baffled. An odd mix of fluorescent solids with dark blue, turquoise, black and liberal use of hot pink stripes! As you would imagine I've been sitting on this for a while...
Then along comes A Lovely Year of Finishes, so one of the challenges I set for myself was to do something with this fabric. The internet is such an amazing resource for inspiration – I think I have a number of half-formed ideas bubbling away now. The first is a Kaffe Fassett-style quilt, with large, quilt-as-you-go squares. I have visions of some kind of embroidered ribbon between the squares.

So, my goal for May is to actually design the quilt – figure out the number of squares, decide if I want borders or not, choose the backing fabric, the ribbon and the quilting pattern. I don't have to sew anything but I need to have a plan and a pattern by the end of the month.
Here's how one square looks so far. I'm excited to see how it will all turn out. This is definitely my favourite part of the process – the designing and colour-choosing – oh, and seeing the finished product is pretty good too! What's your favourite part of the quilt-making process?
Good luck with your May goals everyone!
