Quilt Along . Inspiration

I'm a little surprised at how excited I am to do this quilt along (see previous posts) with Oh, Frannson. I decided to postpone Zadie's quilt for a while so that I can focus on this (and I'll get to that cute Spring jacket for her next).

This is my living room. I adore our red cast iron woodstove. It saves us loads of money on our gas bill in the winter and it's pretty cute. I also love this chair we got at the Salvation Army for $7 (or half that -- I think they were having a sale). I've been wanting a throw for my couch so this quilt project will be it.

I went through my meager stash and found this red print that is my favorite and decided to build from there. I'm going with aqua and teal to mix with the red. I will probably also stray a little bit from my plan to do all reproduction fabrics because there's so much out there (and not much at my local quilt shop at all).

So I'm off to a good start. More tomorrow.
