    Ok here’s my pile! I kept saying “sweet” as I want my quilt to look very sweet when done. Lots of pinks and pastels more like spring.

    Not very neatly presented, but I went into my stash and decided to use my big collection of blue and white with a touch of yellow.

    What a fabulous cross stitch pattern. Makes me want to start up cross stitch. I recognize a lot of Tula
    in your choices. Should be beautiful. Now you just need the low volume background/log cabin fabrics. Barbara says the kit has about 3 yards of low volume. Be sure to post progress pictures.

    This is such a gorgeous project. Here is a photo of my inspiration for the color scheme - a cross stitch piece titled "Woman in a Field of Flowers 1" full coverage cross stitch pattern by Eder Jose Rosa. Charted by Stitches Sew Beautiful, LLC. Copyright 2023. And my associated fabric pull !

    I think your fabrics will be beautiful for this quilt. Depending how light the fabric gets you might be able to mix the lightest part in with the whites for the log
    cabins. I am waiting for some pastels that I order
    for the log cabins. HelenW

    Photos are too large. Delete them, resize smaller and try again. Complete info on this is on the Forum first page of BOM 2024

    Work in progress. I’m digging through my very unorganized scraps and just going with whatever suits me in the moment. After watching the YouTube video of Freddy Moran and how she chooses fabric, I decided to just do it. I’m keeping the backgrounds consistent within each block.

    Hi, I’d appreciate some feedback on my fabrics which are all ombré, both plain and some with gold flecks. I don’t want the quilt to look like a child’s rainbow quilt, so I was thinking of adding some of the lighter and darker tones of the ombré. I have whites for the log cabins. My concern is that Jen Kingwell’s quilt contains mostly midvalue colors. Does this matter?

    Thanks for your comment. I will shop for some light/low volume prints.

    These are lovely. For the log cabin blocks, if you want that border light enough for the appliques and embroidery to show you will need lots more light/low volume prints. The Kit has 3 yards of these very light fabrics.

    Yes -- I have been watching lots of Jen Kingwell on YouTube- She was recently on a Primitive Gatherings segment https://www.youtube.com/live/U6KyckR...zPuQml3bGxoxbZ, and Fat Quarter Shop segment several years ago https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abZo5osIlxk&t=9s

    I have to credit Jen for the idea after watching this video.
