Quilty Hearts Quilt Along - My Fabric Selection!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

I am participating in the Quilty Hearts Quilt Along hosted by Emily of Quilty Love over on Instagram from January 15th to Feb 5th.  This is my fabric selection - a rainbow, of course!

The Quilty Hearts pattern is written with traditional piecing, sewing individual squares together, but you know I am a stripper at ♥, so I plan to strip piece my quilts.

Yes - quiltS!  There is enough fabric here to make two Twin XL quilts.  One will have a light gray background, and the other background is still being determined.  Backing for both quilts will be my favorite extra-wide backing - Widescreen in Gray.  You will get a discount from Fat Quarter Shop if you buy a whole bolt - just ask!

All but three of these solids are from a repurposed Frequency quilt kit.  I love to get quilt kits on clearance and use their fabrics for other projects, especially solid quilt kits.  It's a great way to collect a wider variety of coordinating colors without buying yardage, and the background fabric (usually white or gray) is always useful.  The Frequency quilt kit is now on clearance at a fantastic price right here!

Hmmm, seeing Frequency again makes me think I need to buy another kit and make the actual pattern in it!

Looks like an awesome pattern and your fabric selection will work beautifully.
Thanks for the suggestion about buying kits on sale. I have actually done that once. I had no intention of sewing the pattern, but I love the fabric. Have fun on the quilt along!

These are beautiful colours and I'm also tempted by the frequency kit...but I would have to mail it somewhere in the States.
