Main Crush Monday is Back!

I am happy to tell you that I’m reinstating the Main Crush Monday linky party beginning today!  It’s an easy party to join – just link up anything at all that you are ‘crushing’ on and excited about.  Monday’s are always a rough day of the week, and I thought a linky party where we shared what we are excited about for the week would cheer and motivate all of us.

So, here we go!

My crush this week is on this Kona solid fat quarter bundle. Just look at those colors! Twenty-three pieces of pure yumminess!

Grecian Waters Colorstory

My youngest son needs a quilt and I thought these colors would be perfect for him. The bundle is the Grecian Waters colorstory and the colors feel so calming to me.

Now that I have the colors chosen for his quilt, I need to decide on a pattern.  I’ve been playing around with a star block and here are the two versions I’ve made so far:

Print Star Block

Solid Star Block

I like how the middle of the printed block is bigger, and I like the overall look of the solid block. So I’ll probably end up combining the two to create a block for Anthony’s quilt.

This will be a fun quilt to make – sewing for someone I love so much and using such fabulous colors.  I have a few other commitments to work on first, but am excited to get this one started!

Now, what is your MCM this week?  The rules are simple:

  5. I like the slight variation in the two star blocks that you made, Beth. And the bundle of solids is pure delight. I hope you have a lot of fun working on that quilt for your son!
