morning glory quilt - cuts


a new quilt for my bedroom, the colors red, orange and yellow fit just perfectly.
it will replace my "old" bedroom quilt which i made last year in June and which is my first quilt ever. although i really like it: the colors are just ok, not great and i quilted it really poorly..

so now it´s time for something new.

i cut 221 pieces, each 5" square, from some of my favorite fabrics.

my dearest yellow fabric: the Denyse Schmidt bows! a great yellow..

another dear fabric: the one in the top row, on the left: this is cut from a vintage bedsheet i bought online (in Finland? or England? can´t remember) because we had the exact same sheets at home when we were little, but i didn´t keep them. funny that it obiviously is an european design..
oh, and another thing i see looking at this picture: the dark red pieces in the first row on the right, some Valori Wells Sole fabric, will have to go - it´s too dark in that mixture.

tomorrow: piecing. looking forward to it!
