After all that......

Recently I've been reading the posts about the CQJP2015 project over at Block Talk With Gerry and she makes some very good points.

One thing she talks about is comfort zone as far as your pallette choice. While I'm crazy about colour and I did pull out a pile of  beautiful fabrics in the end I decided that my best choice would be neutrals.

I used to belong to the Monthly Far Quarter Club at Sew Sisters and every so often there would be a beige bit. I put them in one shoe box and there they have sat unloved.


I very rarely use beige in my sewing.

My rationale for my choice is that my aim in doing the CQJP project is to learn and become more proficient at seam treatments. That will be my ultimate focus and challenge.

So all my agonizng over palette choice is over and done with.....sigh of relief:)

Gerry said that she will talk about template selection in her next post....good.  I need all the help I can get.

I looked on Pintangle and there are 79 templates......79!!!!!!!!!!!!

Take care:) 


  1. I luv a neutral palette in creams and whites. This will be sew classy!

  2. Gerry's recent post about template and fabric cutting is genius to me. As a new crazy quilter, I would have never thought about using the same template for all twelve blocks. I'm going with THAT technique!!

    This will be quite a learning experience for us, won't it.

  3. I don't normally work with neutral colours either, but have been trying it out over the past while. Sometimes it's nice to work outside your comfort zone - who knows, we might discover a whole new love!

  4. I love neutral too. But then, there isn't anything I don't like, usually, in fabric.


If you leave a comment and I don't respond it's because I didn't get an email notice. I don't know why this happens and I apologize in advance as I love to hear from you:)
