    Bakers Dozen is way harder than Gypsy Wife when it comes to color coordination. At least in my experience.

    Thanks, Anael....2 more birds, some floral & stems and the center of quilt will be ready to sew.

    i hear ya on the fabric purchase freeze out. My issue is precuts. My stash is ridiculous.

    BD looking good and I can see it could be challenging to balance colors. You are doing great cuz looks really pretty...

    Thank you!! Where are the pictures of birds and flowers?

    The blocks pinned on the right side of the quilt will be sewn on to the left side because of the yellow. I don't want it next to each other.

    My stash isn't that huge, it's just packed in a cupboard and sometimes fabric hides behind a stack of other fabrics That's when I'm thinking.......oh wow, when did I get this??? I'm not buying precuts, mostly half yards except when I need background fabric.

    I hear you on the buying freeze also. I need to stay away from the fabric stores.

    Just got my Green Tea and Sweet Beans pattern. Wow!!! The first block goes into section 2. The second block goes into section 4. She doesn't mention that you need 4x what she described in instructions. And block 3 goes into section 1. There doesn't seem like any organization to this quilt! I guess you just figure it out as you go.

    oh...how fun that you are going to start GTSB. When I made mine, I didn't follow the organization of the book. I completed the blocks by section because I was trying to control the colorway. For instance, even though I needed a bunch of pinwheel blocks thru-out quilt, I only made the amount needed for the specific section I was working on. You can do it whichever you like. Looking forward to see your progress. Please share pictures with us.
