    Ok, I survived "Butterfly Fancy" ~ now its time to get the other wedding quilt done for my nephew (Jess' brother) :)

    If you don't remember the original post, they are having a "hippy wedding" ~ so I asked what pattern everyone would think of when they think "hippy" ~ I have it down to two patterns, bargello or mosaic tile. Bargello is topping the list, and I've been collecting the fabrics for 3 months now...

    This will be a personal challenge for me, as I love both of their chosen colors, but I would not have normally put them together, per se... They chose crimson (his fave) and purple (her fave).

    So, let the creation begin... here is what we have for color choices, all four of us have been arranging order and rearranging order for the last week:

    there are four more fabrics in the wash, as soon as I get those pressed, they will be filtered in...

    I'm looking forward to your creation!
    Have you chosen which bargello pattern you'll use?

    yeah, I love both colors individually ~ but I never would have done something with "just" those colors... but its a special request from them, so I'll oblige LOL! Let's just say this one will be interesting! I had the kids and hubby all arranging the colors... it was funny, something got moved around each day!
