Spring Into Summer Embroidered Quilt

A co-worker and I are going to start making this quilt.  We are going to make it a lunch time project.  I think this is going to be a cute quilt.  However due to the fact that we are doing this on a budget (yes I said budget, I have wayyyyyyyy to may projects that I have purchased, but have not started or completed, however, that does not mean I will stop buying/starting/attempting more projects) and I am going to be embroidering it on a white background (she had bolts of white linen like fabric on hand so we decided to go that route), so it will probably be a wall quilt (not a fan of white fabric with a dog in the house.

Kaleidoscope Quilt Along

I just came across this quilt along and I am going to attempt to do this quilt.  As a kid I loved looking into the round tube to see the beautiful glass or foil paper inside and seeing the changes as you turned the end up into the light.  It always fascinated me, well now I can make a quilt with the same concept.  I am thinking of going with either Asisan type fabric of a springy pastel color range.  The fabric requirements will be  posted on June 3rd and there is a great incentive at the end if you finish your quilt by August 4th (that is only 2 months to complete the quilt, not sure if I will make it, but I am going to try), check out the site to see what the incentive is and what you need to make the quilt.
