It’s time!

I can’t believe it’s already time for the Lulu Louise quilt along! February is flying on by.

Get the book if you haven’t already! The Lulu Louise quilt pattern is included in it.

A few things before we begin…

This pattern requires (14) HALF YARD cuts of fabric and 2 3/4 yards of background for the top.

You can make Lulu any way YOU want to, but if you are wanting it to have the gradation shown in the book, choose a color palette first. Next, gather the darkest fabrics you want to use about 3-4 fabrics with the same intensity. Then, gather 3-4 of the lightest fabrics you want to see in your quilt. Lastly, fill in the remaining fabrics choices with colors that would be somewhere in between your darkest and lightest fabrics.

This doesn’t have to be a perfect gradation, just kinda going from light to dark and then back to light is cool on it’s own. Don’t get caught up in getting everything just so. And don’t be scared to pop a completely different color in there from the others.

We have curated bundles for Lulu here. Go into the bundle listings (even if you are not interested in buying one), and check out some of the mock ups I’ve made. With those visuals, you can really get a sense of where each fabric could go.

Don’t be afraid to be YOU. These mock ups are how I like to make the quilt. You may have an even better idea up your sleeve. Do it YOUR way!

We are going to talk much more about the gradation during week 1.
