Firstly a huge thank you to Linden from Vine Lines Quilting for hosting this fabulous quilt along. If this is your first time here…actually, even if you've been here before, Linden will be interviewing me on her blog as a part of this quilt along. Be sure to keep an eye out for that post and learn all about yours truly.
Now down to business. Is everybody else loving this pattern, or is it just me? I'll admit, cutting all the teeny tiny pieces at the start was not my most favouritist activity ever. Once I started sewing though, I fell in love. This pattern is everything I adore about quilting.
The way these seemingly random pieces can make such beautiful and interesting shapes.

|Looooove the variety of colours.|
When I first looked at this pattern I had grand visions of cascading colours and all sorts of other crazy ideas. I'm sure they would've looked fabulous too, but when I saw Zen Chic's Figures, I knew I'd found my range.

|It's just too awesome not to show again.|
When I cut the fabric at the start, I organised everything into baggies by colour group and border. I then had individual pieces of paper wrapped around each of the five fabrics for that group. I even did this with the scraps so I could easily find them
if when I made a boo boo.
|I do love a good sorting|

The best part is watching the pile of empty baggies grow as we progress through the quilt.
