Two Quilt Alongs in one Week!

I must be going a bit doolally as I have never joined in on a Quilt Along before and now I am joining two in the same week.

This second one is with Becky at and I saw the design she was doing a few months ago and it was so lovely I knew I wouldn't be able to resist.

She has so many wonderful layouts from the same block I've spent all afternoon trying to work out which one I want to do.

I have finally (maybe but nearly definitely) decided on this one.

I am going to do in in greens and yellows with a bit of white. One of my cousins has asked for a quilt for her cottage in Ireland and was very vague on colours as she hasn't decorated there yet. So green, white and gold seem fitting.

I've just been trawling through my stash for all my greens and yellows (well some of them) as I am going to do it quite scrappy. I figure as long as the values in each part of the block are the same it should work out ok. Now I just have to sort them into the correct values!!!! I've never done that before but I think it will be okay.

I think Flickr is going to be my biggest challenge with this challenge! I've decided on colours (I think )and an alternative layout (I think) so Im off to buy fabric on Saturday (naturally I dont have anything suitable in my stash!)
