Dead Simple QAL palette and T.T.T. 13th Oct

I'm linking to Thursday Think Tank over at making rebecca lynne!

I received my order of lovely, lovely fabric from the fabulous Fat Quarter Shop so I can now join the party and show you my Dead Simple Quilt Along palette!! I'm always a bit late for parties ;)

Kona Cotton Solids: Seafoam, Herb, Caribbean, Aqua, Amethyst,  Dark Violet, Hibiscus
(the purples do not show true in this picture)
Honestly I'm still not sure which size to make but I'm leaning towards the small charm square one. I've got so much to do I think the bigger size would be a bit much right now. I'm also not convinced that my quilting 'skills' are good enough to quilt one made with larger fabric pieces - it wouldn't be as forgiving would it?! (If you have no idea what I'm on about click the Dead Simple button on the left and visit Lily's Quilts, have a nosey and join in the QAL!!).

I'm hoping for more votes to help me mull over which of  my half quilts to keep and which to donate - the poll is on the right so please read all about it and then pick one :) There's already a clear favourite!

  1. That stack of fabrics is soooooo beautiful. I totally agree, smaller squares are going to be more forgiving of quilting and the small size is a good one to go for if you don't have bags of spare time.
