Small Plates

April 18, 2012

Ah it’s time for the next quilt in the Practical to Patchwork project!  (wait, if you’re just tuning in, I’m making all the quilts in the book.  Yeah it’s kind of a personal quest)

Small Plates

What’s my fabric choices?  Well I’ve decided to do a little of Joel Dewberry and Prince Charming – what do think?  Their celebrity name shall be Prince Joel Small Plates.

Partner - what would fit you??

I’m going with a dark grey for the neutral color. . bring in some Kona Coal.

    Love it! This is the project I’m working on from the book. What? I know I haven’t finished any of them before this, but I had fabric that was screaming to be made into this quilt (sort of…I’m changing it up a bit) so I jumped ahead. Don’t hate me, ok?

    i just recently found your blog and was excited to see you were working your way through the practical guide to patchwork. i made snapshots late last fall and i just finished fenced in…waiting for the sun to take a final pic. i pulled my aunt edna for small plates the other day but i’m not 100% committed. anyway, it’ll be great to follow your progress!

    What a wonderful quest! I’ll have to go back and check out your previous posts. This was the first real quilt book I ever bought and I still haven’t made one from it, but I look at it frequently…indecision is my issue I suppose. I really like your idea! Perhaps I should just start from the front? Just found your blog today by the way, lovely!

    Beautiful fabric choices. I’m also starting a quilt using coal as my neutral. My first time – usually it’s snow. I can’t wait!

    Love the fabric choices,love the “royal ” name. please don’t be insulted, but that would be a great name for a dog or cat ( pref. rescued ) who needs a “pedigree” lol

    How about “Joel’s Charming Plates” I know it takes the royal aspect out but it is an illusion on the designs.
