When Sara asked if I’d like to participate in a blog hop for Jaybird Quilts‘ patterns, I didn’t have to think twice. Of course I knew about Julie/Jaybird and her patterns, and had heard of her specialty rulers, but just hadn’t gotten around to trying any of them myself. Boy am I glad I did!
When my project assignment came – Northern Lights – I knew I would need to go shopping for solids that coordinated better than what I had in my stash. I went “window shopping” at Pink Chalk Fabrics one day, and saw a Modern Solids bundle I fell in love with – “Sunset Blvd.” I wanted just one little tweak, and in chatting with Diana there, I ended up with the stack you see below: Burnt Orange, Pumpkin, Spice, Gold, Daffodil, Stone, Lead, and Metal.
