Hunt QAL Month #1 Check In.
I have two questions for you. (1) How has it already been 1 month, and (2) how are things going with you and your project?
For me, this month developed in ways I didn’t totally anticipate. I’d made a plan, but when putting it into action, I realized I wanted to make a few adjustments, which is fine. Instead of working in strict groups of 4 blocks, I decided that I wanted to get a better idea for the fabrics for all of the blocks at the onset, so I’ve spent most of my time refining my color and fabric plan.
My dream all along has been to make a green and white project, and it wasn’t until I was driving around town that I noticed what I was going for was right in front of me. This isn’t a great picture, in fact it’s a grab from google…but this building was my aha moment.
And then I really started to notice things.
After seeing the color schemes in real life, I decided it would be fun and helpful to create a moodboard on Pinterest for this project. I don’t always do this, actually I never do this, but it seemed like a helpful way to go and a fun thing to indulge myself in. You can see my full moodboard here.
I’m really excited to keep going with this. I feel like getting the color and mood right can be tricky, but once you get it, it’s smooth and exciting sailing. I’ve pulled and cut fabrics for many of my blocks, but I’ll show these for now.
I know, there’s blue up there. I promise, I really am heading in the green direction, but once I looked at that fabric (from friedlander lawn), I just had to have it in there. I can’t wait to turn those pieces under and see how the fabric plays out.
Are you enjoying using the planner? Normally I’m terrible at remembering things, but since I’ve been noting stuff in my planner, my list of shareables is at the ready.
In watching/listening news, the Price Is Right documentary on Netflix was great, and Ava DuVernay’s When They See Us (also on Netflix) was a tough, but really compelling and well done. In terms of Podcasts, I’ve been listening to This Land, and the trailer to Man In The Window was a good enough tease that I’m ready for the new episodes when they start coming out.
Have you found anything good?
Happy Hunting friends.
