King Size Paint Box Quilt Blocks Finished!

Progress on my king quilt

I’ve made slow progress on my king size quilt project. This one is for our bed. I’ve never done anything this big. So 12 of 16 block sets are complete. Don’t they look yummy!

Color Palette for King Sized Quilt Project

  This is the color palette I am working on for my first king-sized quilt.  It will be based on the Paintbox quilt by  Elizabeth Hartman at Oh Fransson. I drafted a larger block size, and will only have 16 color combinations instead of 32.  Oh, and I think I am going to go with a darker sashing.  Undecided right now.
