Facets Plus QAL Fabric Pull

Have you seen the Facets Plus QAL being run by Amanda at This Mom Quilts? I’m joining in for this one and it will be my first ever Quilt Along!!! So excited!

This is my fabric pull for this quilt. 

I have a pile of ½ yard charcoal prints that I collected last year for a project that somehow seemed to get pushed back and back every time something new came along. The design I had in mind wasn’t a million miles away from Amanda’s and so it was a simple matter of bringing the quilt back up to the top of the list. That’s great! Because this is a quilt I actually NEED. It will be going on the king single sized bed in my spare room, so I will be adapting it (is this allowed in a QAL? I think so…) to make it longer and wider by adding borders.

The facet plus blocks will be a mix of these solids (and one hand dye). Amanda’s design gives a little more creative head room than the standard plus block allowing a few more colours and combinations.

Thankfully Amanda’s giving us a realistic time frame to get this put together, so if you haven’t quite made up your mind there’s still plenty of time… cutting instructions came out on Monday and the fabric requirements are here.

Linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation and Let's Bee Sewcial at Sew Fresh Quilts.

  1. Great colors in your fabric pull! This will be an awesome quilt. And yes, you can do whatever you want in a QAL. Make more blocks or add borders to make it the size you want. It is your quilt after all!

  2. You have so many fabrics pulled that I am using in the background of my current quilt. The facet-plus quilt is a great project. The fabrics you have pulled look like they will work very well.

  3. Great fabrics and modifying a design is always allowed in my book! Even when I mean to follow the pattern I often end up with some kind of "creative interpretation", LOL.

  4. I think these are fabulous choices for your QAL, it's going to look amazing. Can't wait to see how it all comes together. And most importantly, I hope you enjoy your first QAL :)

  5. Love your fabrics and hope you enjoy the quilt along as well. I'm already in two quilt alongs but this one is looking tempting.

  6. Nice fabrics, I always love pink and grey. I am doing my first quilt along too, Cheryl's mystery quilt, and I didn't even ask her for a sneak peak. I'll be interested to see your progress.

  7. Well, I don't have time for another QAL at the moment, but the name just grabs me, so I'm going to go check it out.

  8. Love your fabrics! May I ask what is the text print on the far right? I haven't seen that before! There are so many great quilt alongs right now, I just can't do them all!
