I am going to try to go back chronologically. I am having a little trouble putting pictures in from photobucket. So, I hope this works.
In July I made a baby quilt for a co-worker. She wanted pastels and she was decorating in ABC 123. I had just gotten a magazine (maybe Quilt) that had this pattern in it. This was as close to pastels as I could take myself. I used some of my stash, some of my sisters and I bought some. It is backed in yellow flannel.
Here is a better picture of the colors but every seam shows through in the sun. That simply amazed me.
It really isn't as distorted as it looks. I have a hard time with random and really had to work at this but I like how it turned out.
ETA: I figured out the picture issue and FIXED it!
I will work on the picture issue and make another post tonight. I have pictures for a tutorial type post in case anyone ever reads this.
