Quilt-a-long progress...

So I changed by mind - instead of using my previously posted fabrics for Dana's quilt-a-long, I decided to use some Portobello Market. I purchased this collection to make a quilt for my Dad & Stepmom - this is totally the colour scheme of their rec room - very traditional. So with people talking about planning Christmas presents already, I figured I better get a jump start and get sewing...

I was able to get 39 12.5" squares. We're in Week 4 of the quilt-a-long and are piecing together the quilt top. But when I put mine together like so (see below), I find it's too busy. I'm not crazy about this fabric to begin with, because it's too traditional for me, so this placing is not winning me over.

I think I'll have to insert some sashing, maybe cut up some more blocks...i dunno. I'll figure something out.

If you're not in the quilt-a-long, go check out the groups Flickr page...lots of pretty stuff happening there! It's crazy to see how many are doing this project together!
