Then Elizabeth Hartman of Oh Fransson! posted her Aviatrix Medallion quilt and my mouth dropped open.
Here is a picture I took from her site:
This quilt speaks to me. It is all solids- Kona solids, actually. It has a mostly grey background. It is absolutely stunning and I knew I had to make it. The pattern was on sale when she first released it so I bought it knowing that some day I would get to it (probably not this year or even the next!).
Then that peer pressure came my way thanks to my friend C who posted on Instagram that she had pulled the fabrics for her Aviatrix Medallion. She challenged me to go next. And so, on Mother's Day when I had the house to myself for a few hours (thanks to my awesome hubby), I hauled out my Kona solids, my Kona colour card and the pattern and got to work pulling.
|All these Kona solids in the bin had to be considered!|
|This stack of solids is now sitting next to my sewing table dining room table and calling to me.|
