I've been pondering this.

I bought Kathy Doherty's Making Quilts at the Quilt and Craft Fair in February and I've been pondering the Fractured Quilt ever since.   It has to stay a contemplation for a while because his project would definitely need a design wall and I still have Shimmering Triangles on the design wall.  Though that's an exciting development - I actually have a  design wall up in The Quiltery now and every time I open the door I see the bright and beautiful fabrics of my  Shimmering Triangles   I've recently added some more fabrics included really bright orange so it really pops.

I've been playing catch up this week and finishing off the last of the March Teal & Aqua blocks, then making the first purple block for April.  I was rummaging in the scrap box for a feature print for the Corner Frames block and I came up with the little 9 patch which worked perfectly.

 I was really surprised by how many fabrics I could find in the Teal & Aqua colour range.  I ended started a separate box for them in the stash.

I'm really going to enjoy working in Purple throughout

The 12 inch blocks seem huge after working on 6 inch ones for a while.
