Two days ago I got my monthly email from SILVER LININGS ORIGINALS, a website with great paper-piecing patterns. If you sign up for the newsletter, she sends a free pattern every month for this year's quilt called, TREASURES FROM THE RAINFOREST.
I love the colors in this quilt - vibrant greens/blues.
Shes uses colors instead of numbers to identify which color to sew in which space. So the first thing I did was tape pieces of fabric to the color guide. I am still not quite used to seeing a pink square which really means to sew green. My patterns usually have Gr1, Gr2, Gr3, etc. So far I have only made three blocks. I am sure I will get used to the color chart as I continue on.
If you look up in the left corner of the color guide, you will see what the finished block will look like. I am thinking of trying that yellow/black fabric for the breast....still not positive on that. I will see how it looks when I get that far.
I think this will be a fun series.
