Bandwagons

There are lots of people who have started the Hawaiian Sunset 1845 quilt.  I resisted for a while because I have plenty of projects going on.  Today I finally succumbed to peer pressure.  I just went to the Quilt Sew and Shop website and downloaded a digital pattern before heading over to Connecting Threads and loading up on fabrics in lime, avocado, pink and navy.  I like the sites that let you shop by color or by theme.  I won't start until a couple of projects on the list are done, but this one can go on the list for later.  Maybe as leaders and enders?  Time will tell.

Peer pressure is fun! I'm still resisting.

I am so happy you are making one too! I need some "moral" support on why I started another project with others still looming!!

I love this quilt too! Part of the fun is all the planning and anticipating and fabric buying!

Ohhh darn! I thought I was free and clear not having the magazine. Resisting, resisting, resisting!

I love that quilt! I have pulled the magazine and it's in my "to do soon" pile... Every time I forget about it completely, someone reminds me of how much I want to make it :*) You'd think it was a "Bonnie" quilt with all those little pieces, right? I'll enjoy watching to see how yours is coming along. I may even start mine.....

I love the colours you have chosen. When you see them written down, I would not have thought of combining avocado with lime, but it works so beautifully.
