I should be spending my fabric time figuring out what I am going to do for the upcoming 12x12 challenge which requires that we use a "spice color" palette. So far I've not had any appealing ideas come to mind, so I'm just letting it be, hoping something good will float to the surface of my distracted mind.
But meanwhile, I've been continuing my mission to use up fabric in the closet. And that explains this quilt, which I made from a bundle of Moda "layer cake" squares I found on sale a few years ago. I do love polka dots and these fabrics are so bright and cheerful! This ended up almost twin-bed sized, to my surprise, but as my goal was just to use up the fabric I'm glad it did. This is destined for the Valley of the Moon Children's Shelter, my favorite place for donating quilts.
By the way, I always have a hard time figuring out how to photograph large quilts -- my design wall isn't nearly big enough. So this morning I pinned the quilt to a big roller shade that comes off of the patio arbor outside and gave that a try. Hardly what the Quilt Photography experts would recommend but it got the job done. (I have heard of people using their garage doors. Perhaps I'll try that next.)
