Palmateer Point Quiltalong


Here we are this summer on Palmateer Point on Mt Hood. It is the title of our new quiltalong!

If you have a bag of 2" squares, this is a great time to put them to use! You could do strips but it won't be scrappy like the original.  Here's my color palette. I kept it soft and muted (no reds, blacks or heavy colors) I wanted my quilt to start out looking aged. Do you notice I tossed in a couple yellows/gold? Just a few.

Next you'll need to find 2 contrasting colors. I'm sticking with the original pink and muslin. The most you will need will be 1/4 yard or a FQer of each. The quilt I'm doing as a quiltalong will finish about 21" square, so if you want it larger you'll need more fabric. 
That's it for now. I'll be back Friday or next Monday to get started!

  5. Looking forward to it, Lori!
    My 2" squares are all those hard colors, so I need to decide if I will cut more in the softer palette or use what I have.
