With the baby only 5 weeks away from his or her debut, there’s so much to do. As if I needed to start another yoyo quilt. But the other day at JoAnn, what with the quilting fabrics being discounted and some of the solids marked down too, a palette for another quilt literally jumped out at me. I reminded myself that yoyos are a low-committment big committment project. They take up little space, I can work on them as I please and they only start to weigh on my mind as I get close to finishing a quilt…that’s a long time away at the beginning. And those little gathered circles bring me so much joy texturally and colorwise too. I must be crazy.
7 yards and $17 later (I’m not sure how I managed to purchase that much fabric for that little), I have the start of what looks like it will be a study of primary colors with browns added in. I love these colors together so far. I’m excited to see what other fabrics I find along the way.
