My turn has come up for The Fussy Cut Bee. My month in November, but I sent them out a little early to give people more time to work on them before the craziness of the holidays sets in. I have changed my mind several times on what I wanted for my quilt. I have been on a gray kick for awhile though. So I decided to go with a color scheme that included gray. I started out with the two yellow and gray Amy Butler prints you see that I have had for a long time- just waiting for the right project. I used almost exclusively fabrics from my stash except for the bright pink floral and the little pink elephants that I got from Hawthorne Threads to add a bit more pink to the mix.
I originally thought I would use the large Amy Butler floral as the fussy cut, but I just wasn't feeling it and went with the little elephants instead. For my block I was inspired by this quilt. I love log cabin blocks, and I love all the improvisational piecing you can add to these to give a variety of looks. Here is the gallery of photos I put together for the other members of the bee. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
