Introducing the Salty Sisters...
As I mentioned in my January Just Three post, I've signed up for the Gen X Quilter's Sisters' Ten BOM. Since I've decided to use Tula Pink's Salt Water fabrics, Salty Sisters just seems like too silly of a title to pass up.
As soon as I got my big bundle of fabric goodness, I couldn't wait to cut into it and fortunately the block of the month for January was already up!
I ended up deciding on the Subs and Seaweed in Seaweed for the background fabric. It's quite a light green and I thought it would be a fun change from my typical white background. I thought that for each month I would do one block mostly in green and one mostly aqua with a couple splashes of coral thrown in here and there for contrast.
January's block is Grandmother's Frame. A large square in the middle of the block just begged for some fussy cut octopi (or is it octopuses? That doesn't sound right either...) and I was only too happy to oblige.
Can't wait to keep up this pace and end up with a gorgeous quilt at the end of the year. I'm going for the 12" finished block size, so it will be a pretty generous twin quilt when all is said and done - just slightly larger than anything I've done before. Eeek!!
