I'm starting the process of gathering the materials for 'Tis the Season wall quilt designed by Natalie Bird. First of course was ordering the book. I got mine from Daisy Cottage Quilting.
My next step while waiting for the book to arrive was to order a variety of red floss. When I get the fabrics, I can choose whichever red looks the best.
I also thought I might do the quilt in greens instead of reds. So I
ordered an even bigger selection of greens to audition.
Next step is to choose fabric. I have to dig out and paw through my many boxes of fabric to find a suitable assortment. I may make the quilt more scrappy than the original. So far I have a cream solid to use for the sticheries if I don't find something I like even better.
What does everyone else do when planning a project? Do you shop from your stash or do you head for the quilt store?
