Zuma Obsessed

December 11, 2018

Last week I brought home a fat quarter bundle of Tula Pink's Zuma. Within days I had that baby opened, and cut! I rarely do that! I usually let the fabric sit for a while, but I had to play with this fabric now!! The colors are so rich and full!! I love the areas where you can see fluorescent colors pop!

I decided to use the pattern Shimmer by Cluck Cluck Sew. To make the twin sized quilt,  I needed a total of 30 fat quarters. I had removed the six fat quarters in the original bundle that read too light and went through my stash to pull twelve coordinating fabrics to add to the group. Moda Grunge, Peppered Cotton by Studio E and Blueberry Park by Robert Kaufman

This is only one of many pictures I took while sorting and deciding how to group the fabrics for each block and how to lay them out. I found that this pattern is one where you need to have a plan before you make the blocks. I wanted the warm and cool colors, the prints and the solids to be as balanced as  I could get them without over thinking it to death! By the way, I made a couple of changes after I had decided this was the final layout. LOL! 

I have one block finished! With all the prep work I did to get to this place, it went together quickly and easily and it came out the right size! Yay!! 

With Christmas right around the corner, I will only be able to grab a few minutes here and there to make more blocks. That forces me to enjoy the process, right? 

If I don't post again until next year, I want to take the time to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. 

The God of all creation humbled Himself to become a human being—our Savior, Christ the Lord.  Because Jesus was born He could die, bringing the abundance of life we enjoy through Him.  May each of you rest in the security of the Babe whose birth we celebrate this day.
