You can tell how excited about a quilt pattern I am by how quickly it transfers from my downloaded pile into fabric. I am pretty excited about Space dust!
In the pattern, Tula has put in a diagram to show colour placement and it is this that I matched my colours up to, improving when I didn't quite have the right shade (or when brown fabric was involved!)

I didn't think too hard about it and I love that for once I have managed to stray just a little away from the regimented order of the rainbow.
The foundation piecing is going well. I have had a few dodgy moments when I haven't quite covered the area, but I just add on an additional bit rather than un-picking. I think I am going to have to do some block trimming as some of the seams are out, probably due to printing it at 75%.

My mind is already whirring on how I am going to quilt this. The quilting on the original is amazing (Angela Walters - need I say anymore!) and I want to step out of my comfort zone and away from all-over wonky lines or 'organic' straight lines.
