A new project....

This pile of washed fabrics


has turned into this pile of kaleidoscope triangle 1+2's. The fabrics are much brighter than in the below picture.

I need to press and cut the black triangles out still.... but it is almost time to start playing and seeing how it will look. I have cut 120 of each but I know I want this to be twin sized so will be cutting a few more out after I figure out color placement.

This will be a graduation quilt for my niece and she chose bright blue, green and yellow with black. I chose the Kaleidoscope pattern from Don't call me Betsy's blog. She had a quilt along last summer and I love the quilts that came out of it. I am looking forward to sewing this one together. I got these hand dyed fabrics from Stone Row Studio and she was so nice to hand dye some green/yellow's for me after I had purchased the blues at a quilt show last November.
I think the most difficult part will be deciding how to place the colors and if I try and keep the two triangle's in the same color family or not. Maybe I'll let the future quilt owner in on that one tonight when she stops in to see our place down here in Florida.....
