I could hardly wait to start 2016....but I didn't know WHERE to start. I have shelves and shelves of fabric: Fabric on bolts, mini-bolts, folded in baskets, and scraps separated by color of which most is cut into various sizes of squares. I decided to concentrate on using what I have rather than make new purchases. First, I went through patterns and found one I bought about 5 years ago called "Radiant". Then I picked a fabric of which I knew I had at least 2 yards to use for "inspiration" and as the outer border. The next step was easy: picking out fabrics from my stash that fit the color scheme of the "inspiration". This called for 32 different fabrics.....no problem! One thing missing was a light neutral. I used all my light neutral fabrics in Christmas projects, so I had to break down and buy some white-on-white at the local quilt shop. The directions were easy and the project went pretty fast. Here's the finished product......It is backed in maroon and quilted with gold thread.
