My next project!

I've decided on my next quilt project, now that the Pinwheel Baby Quilt is done.

In my last post, I showed some of the cute fabrics I picked up in Atlanta.  One of the purchases I made was a cute fat quarter bundle of six Michael Miller prints from Little Quilts.  These fabrics were just calling to me and so I decided I wanted to work with these fabrics next.

Lucky for me, while out shopping this past weekend (I just had to check out a few more of the local shops) I found this cute pattern.

It's called Perfect 10, by Swirly Girls Design.

Another crappy photo. My apologies for my recent atrocious photography.

The pattern calls for 10 fat quarters, plus a neutral accent fabric, plus a border fabric.  I fished around in my stash, and managed to come up with several other fabrics that matched with the fat quarter bundle perfectly.

The six fat quarters at the top are the bundle I purchased. The four fabrics on the bottom are the ones I pulled from my stash to coordinate.

I love these colors, and I just can't wait to get started! I think I'm going to use white as my accent (see the white square outlines in the pattern above?) and I haven't decided yet on what will be the border. I don't have any other fabrics in the stash in large enough quantities that coordinate to use for the border, so I may have to buy something, or use a solid, either one I've already got or one I'll buy.  Haven't decided yet.

I didn't get around to cutting yet, so I'm hoping that I can do that tomorrow and get to piecing!  Can't wait, I think it's going to be super cute.
