Back in early October I stumbled across Rachel Griffith's (p.s. i quilt) Build A Quilt Workshop: Facade class. Several things appealed to me about the class right away: first, I really liked the quilt; second, it used pre-cuts which were something I hadn't really worked with before; third, it was an online class which is a new format for me; fourth, it only cost $10! What have you got to lose there! (Sorry if you are getting a sense of deja vu - I wrote about the class back here). If that sounds appealing to you, Rachel is starting a new Cascade class soon.
Sweetwater. The olivey (springy?) green, the deep red, the lovely cream and the crisp black just work for me.
Being a dedicated prewasher of all my fabric, I was a little nervous about not being able to wash the precuts before I started. To be consistent, I didn't wash any of the yardage I used for this quilt either. I heaved quite a sigh of relief when I took the quilt out of the dryer and there was absolutely no bleeding at all. My husband and I are using this quilt to keep us warm while we watch TV. Christmas can hang around our house for a little longer this year.
Edited to add: I'm linking up to Amanda Jean's Finish It Up Friday.
