Have you been following/joining in with the Groove Quilt quilt-along at Pile o Fabric? Alyssa is doing a fantastic job hosting this quilt along and she's such a new convert to sewing but it's pretty obvious she's already addicted, here's hoping for our sake she stays that way!
The top for my Groove quilt is pieced. The concept was cloudy grey skies with a touch of sunshine and blue peeping through. I plan to quilt the greys with some kind of cloud like swirls and the rainbow sections with something to represent raindrops. I had to alter the piecing method to fit my rainbow sections so it was bit fiddly putting it together. The fantastic pattern comes from Emily Cier at Carolina Patchworks.
There are some fabulous looking quilts appearing in the Quilt Along flickr group.
A few things I discovered - improv. paperpiecing is fun, all greys are not equal, it's very difficult to buy grey fabric online, you never quite know if it's going to work out until it's done, and my husband is about 4 inches too short...
