We visited a couple of patchwork shops and, miraculously, each time I walked out empty-handed. But, I had done a bit of shopping earlier in the week and it arrived this morning. Lila Tueller "Soiree" jelly roll and pink fabric (the green is for the backing). Am planning a quilt for a friend's daughter's 18th birthday in July - I think she'll like this fabric.
In 2006 I took part in a row-by-row round robin with an on-line group - we each made our own log cabin row to set the colours for the rows then each row followed a theme (baskets, stars, houses, applique, paper piecing etc). I hadn't been able to make a decision about the layout then last week realised where this quilt will look wonderful and so called in some help (John) to sort out where each row should sit.
