Of course they did.

Photo from The Purl Bee site.

This color wheel quilt is one of the many things I've been staring at real hard in the new patchwork book. I have mixed feelings about it, and they are best expressed by the following two statements:

Ashley (and I'm paraphrasing): I want that quilt, but I don't want to have to make it.

My PIC: I also want that quilt, and I want to be able to say I made it, but there's no way in hell I'm making it.

OK. Well. I can't imagine making it either, but those enablers over at Purl are messing with my mind, man!

Look at what they've done.

They've put together bundles (or "bundules" if you'd rather) of the fabrics you'd need to make this accursed quilt, and you can just buy the whole damn thing just like that.

This photo is also from The Purl Bee site, and if you click on it, you can go straight to the page where you order them. Yes, yes. You're welcome.

You might think I'm getting kickbacks from Purl, what with my unrelenting look at this Purl thing and look at that Purl item, everybody! Nope. No kickbacks. I just do it out of love. Heartbreaking, wallet-squeezing, this-is-gonna-be-the-death-of-me love.

I KNOW. Although I was just saying to Diana/Bestitched that I kind of want the challenge of collecting all of the colors myself. You know, for the glory.

Nora said...

I agree. If one is to make the quilt, then one must collect the colours oneself [onesself?]! Two Ss or one? Oh, such confusion. It's still very early here...

It is beautiful, but I think there are eleventy billion pieces of fabric that have to line up into that ONE point in the middle. Good grief.

Melissa - Yes. I think it's the eleventy billion pieces that have me shaking my head and saying, "pshhh, no way". You are so right -- good grief, indeed!

My gosh!! That quilt really is stunning. Purl seems to come up with endless ways to help us spend our crafting dollars. And, like you, I love them for it.
