UPDATE: Apparently my Gmail account is sending spam to several of you. Please do not open it unless there is a relevant current subject line and you are sure it is the real me sending the email.
I am so sorry for spamming you. I have taken several measures to ensure it does not continue. The one change you will notice is to leave a comment you will now have to have a Gmail or Open ID account. I am sorry to loose those of you who do not have these accounts, but I just can not go on spamming you guys.
If you continue to get spammy emails from me, please tell me. Without that, I have no idea I am sending out the nasties. And now onto our regularly scheduled blog post....
It took me about 30 seconds to join in with Leanne's Mod Pop QAL. I have never joined in a QAL before, mostly because they came at the wrong time for me personally. There are several I regret missing. This, however, I could not let pass.
You see, I want to make a quilt as a Christmas gift for a very special fella. I have been struggling with the idea of a man-quilt, as I am sure you all have at some point. That was until I saw this:

This week's homework was to choose our fabrics. I've pulled a few that might work. Try to imagine the white in Leanne's quilt replaced with a Kona Ash in combination with this:
I took out the lighter colored fabrics at the top of the pile as they hurt my eyes when the sun came in the window. Maybe, being in Ireland, I am just not that used to the sun. Possibly. Anyway, here we are without the lighter fabrics:
I like that. Now what about just blues and purples? Now we are getting somewhere I think.
What do you guys think? Is there enough variety here? I tend to go for medium and darks leaving out the lights. But then, there will also be Kona Ash to brighten it up. Any hints are welcome!
