Let’s Bee Social #2
The subject for this Let’s Bee Social linky party post is an introduction to my first project for 2014!
This set of Simply Style charms is the makings of a new quilt design.

As I outlined previously in this post, a few of my quilty New Year’s resolutions, were to buy more fabric, make more quilts and to focus on design. New Year’s resolutions have been known to be difficult to keep. But I am determined and I don’t give up easily!

The Artichoke was the best choice I could make at my LQS. My hope is that the lighter shade of grey in this fabric will, in reality, be brighter in the finished quilt than it appears in this mock up.
But I wish I was more patient and would have ordered some fabric online to make this version.
The background fabric is Damask Rose in Grey by Robert Kaufman Fabrics.
This lighter grey version really pops!

Although I am getting to know my new EQ7, there is definitely a learning curve.
It is, of course, much more complicated than my old design method – graph paper.
After all… I had perfectly mastered the operation of a pencil sharpener!
In case you missed it…
I shared a post just yesterday with more details on designing your own quilts here.
