A recent finish

The store where I work was running low on baby boy quilts.
So I jumped at the chance to reunite with my old buddy David Walker
(of Robots fame) and make something using some of his "Oh Boy!" collection.
I decided to go with something quick that would show-off individual prints
so I made a quick disappearing 9-patch. Love that pattern.
We also threw in some spaceships and robots just for old time's sake.
The back.
I need to take this into American Quilting this week.
The kits will be available through them by next week.

A lovely holiday weekend (Martin Luther King/Civil Rights Day) here in the States. Today I spent the day finishing unpacking our craft room. Yes! I was so sick of boxes a while back and so ready to start sewing again after the move, that I made the space functional, but still had about 4 boxes (mostly of kid's art supplies) left to go through. Today I finally did it. No more boxes!! Close to organization!! Maybe even close to photo worthy soon! :) Also, I've been sucked into the book, The Hunger Games. It was close to a miracle that I forced myself to put the book down and get some work done.

Super cute! I actually have almost all those fabrics. I love how you put all these together. I might have to do something similiar.
(I still need to order or red/turquoise quilt squares :))

Nice quilt,your store is lucky to have you. Congrats on finishing unpacking. It can be quite daunting at times, can't it?

Cute boy quilt, and I've heard about Hunger Games. It's on my list to read, so thanks for the recommendation.

Great quilt! And regarding the book - that's why I've switched to mainly books on my ipod. That way I don't have to put it down, even to make dinner!

Cute quilt. How lucky you are to get to make quilts for a quilt shop. After you finish that awesome book, take a breath, and then dive into Catching Fire because it rocks too.

Adorable Quilt!

You'll be sucked into finishing "Catching Fire" too, when you decide to read it. Both books are intense and thought provoking. I really enjoyed both books.

jessica said...

Oh I just ended up ignoring everything and everyone until I finished reading Hunger Games. I'm pretty sure I didn't even stop for lunch. :)

I love this! With a little guy I would like to make him something boyish - that's not ugly. These are cute - and he loves orange. I really want to do a disappearing nine patch too.

Brooke said...

I love everything you make! I would love to make this for my new baby boy out of the new Wheels fabric by My Mind's Eye. Where can I find this pattern? My email is bork88@gmail.com.
