LMP+QG january challenge: colored pencil roll

A few weeks ago, my friend Kait and I came up with a challenge for ourselves: each month, we would select a project from Last-Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts, make it, and blog about it. [I've already done one project from this book and loved it: Luna's Puzzle Ball.] This month, for the first project, we decided to make the colored pencil roll:

I was happy with how my roll turned out, and amazed that I had enough of a range of colors in my scrap bin to create a rainbow. I've been using color more and more in my quilt sketches these days, so I think this will be a very handy accessory to have.

See Kait's pretty roll (and sketchbook!) here.

Coming up next month: Stacked Coins quilt


  1. I love the dark fabric! Lovely work :)

    1. Thanks, Kait! I've had that gray canvas in my scrap bin for a while. It was nice to use it up!
