Blockheads 3 - Week 20

This week's block is courtesy of Lisa Bongean

You might have noticed the unusual fabric pick on my cutting table underneath this week's block.  It's my new long term project and it will have Jen Kingwell's new line - Winkipop, Christopher Wilson Tate's Regency Zarafa, Ruby Star's Warp Weft Wovens, some Jen Kingwell basics, and some shot cottons.  Whew!  I'm emphasizing LONG TERM and it will be hand pieced and English Paper Pieced. Oh, and I'm still waiting on fabrics that I've ordered to fit in.  Why use 100 fabrics when 200 might be better?

When I opened up the Warp Weft Woven bundle with lots of yummy wovens in many different weights - I saved the four heavy linen pieces (with that wonderfully yellow wonky salvage) and hemmed them for new dinner napkins.
Most of the rest of the bundle will be in the fabric pick above... It's good, every once in awhile, to do something a little unexpected.

The exact plans for this quilt..... well, they are still up in the air.

Of course, I do love some RED, WHITE and BLUE and many of those quilts went up on walls this week.

Notice that Gibby has made a pile of his favorite pillows on the end of the sofa. :) This quilt, called Picnic is in the Mix It Up book by the Moda All-Stars.

Hand-pieced AND English paper-pieced? Sounds like loads of fun! Looking forward to seeing it all come together one day. You did say "long term", right?

You have such an eye and vision for texture, color combinations, placement and all that go together is just incredible to me. Maybe that is why my stash is bursting at the seams...because after I purchase colors I like I don't know how to put them together !! :(

Could you tell me the name of the quilt pattern on the wall in the last photo?

I love your Picnic quilt and just bought the book the pattern is in. The book says you used Moda Grunge for the background, may I ask which grunge color it is?
