Design Wall Monday rolls around again. See more design walls/surfaces on Judy's Small Quilts and Doll Quilts blog.
I received a message from younger daughter Erica asking if a month is enough time to make a quilt. Her boyfriend's best friend is getting married and she wanted to give him a quilt. She had a pattern all picked out for a throw sized quilt. I said "Sure", of course, and Saturday afternoon I drove up to their place. The pattern she decided on is a two sided--with opposite colorway on the reverse. It is called Double the Plus, by designer Emily Dennis of Quiltylove.com.
We first visited Cotton and Chocolate Quilt Company where Erica quickly picked out a gray tonal for the blocks and a black and white print binding fabric. Kona Snow or Bone was our first choice for the white, but the bolts were pretty picked over--due to the California Quilt Run, no doubt. Lots of shoppers were enjoying the day. We needed 5 yards, but didn't want several pieces to make that amount. A trip to JoAnn's Fabric followed. Their bolt selection was also pretty slim; however there was Kona Bone in 108" width so Erica bought two yards. If I cut correctly, I should not have to piece any of the sashing or borders for the White side.
