The color palette for this quilt was pink, turquoise and yellow with highlights of black and chocolate. I was drawn to this sloth fabric as my inspiration fabric.
I am very fond of this sloth fabric and I wish I could have ordered more but everyone was out of it so I could only get one yard so I am not quite sure how I will use it in the quilt. My thought was to use it in the borders surrounding the hexagon stars. I will have to trace out the hills and see if it works. TBD.
Here is the wonderful quilt that I will attempt to make. The directions warn that is not one for a beginner. Marg Sampson-George says to make the hexagons when you just need to do some mindless stitching and tackle the other appliques when you are up to the challenge. I love a quilt that mixes it up like that. Can't wait. But I should really finish some UFO's before I dive into the fun.

The Quilt Show. I will be persistent and make this my April OMG. I always think I can get more done than is actually possible. I do like needle turn so I will keep at it. I picked a take and go project for last month because I was visiting children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Lots of travel last month. I may have a lot this month as well. The watchword for the month is persistence. Note that persistence does not interfere with the Joy of the process.
