New fabrics...new project

My fabric has finally arrived...Yeah!!!
20 gorgeous Fat Quarters, 10 from Hello Luscious by Basic Grey and 10 from Good fortune by Kate Spain both from Moda fabrics.


The fabric lines are wonderful and they blend perfectly. I couldn't be happier. At last I can begin my new project. My double Wedding Ring quilt. This past weeks i've been searching through the net and asked a couple of blogger friends about the best method or pattern to make such a quilt. I don't know if I chose the best or the fastest way but I'm going to use the paper piecing method. I gave it a try last week and it wasn't a bad experience so today I dug into it.
 I cut the pieces and began sewing the arches, I'm going to make two different sets ( or more if the fabric isn't enough)
 Just to be on the safe side sure I sewed a melon and the results were pretty good, my seams matched and the curved piecing wasn't that hard
I think I'm gonna be busy for the next weeks or... should I say months!!!
