First Quilt Project of 2014

 Spent the day with the granddaughters.  We had a great day.  They made rag dolls from a kit purchased at Hobby Lobby.  Doll was smaller than we anticipated but they had a great time making the dolls.  They then built them a house out of the boxes and drove them around in their remote control cars from last Christmas.  It's never boring with the girls around.

I promised to show you my first quilt project of 2014.  It all began when I saw a lovely quilt on a blog.  I found the pattern "Magical Slice and Dice" and ordered online.  Now the fun begins.

Here is the fabric I chose for the quilt.  Well actually the lady at ETC. (a local crafting and fabric store) helped me find a fabric that would work for slice and dice. The fabric is Mimi by Chez Moi for Moda.  I love the colors in the fabric. Next I cut the quilt squares following the instructions in the pattern.  Then I assembled the 40 blocks.  All 40 blocks are different.  Below you can see 4 of the 40 blocks.

Next week, I'll show you the next step - attaching the sashing to each block.  Can you guess what color I'm using for sashing??????

I've never seen a quilt like this before, love the way the patterns are put together. Hmm, I'm thinking lavender?
