Now that my red solids are washed, I’m ready to finish my Dresden blocks!
Next, I finished top for a baby boy quilt.
This one may end up in the etsy shop.
And some kits – I figured it was about time we did something ‘boyish.’
See that print of the cars driving on roads on yellow.
My 3-year-old informed me that it’s cars driving in the desert.
I love how kids see things differently.
To me, it was just the yellow colorway of that print.
Then there’s this beauty.
Yesterday I spent the morning (thanks to the kind generosity of my awesome neighbor who watched my little boys) with my mom’s cute quilt group learning this technique for making a traditional lone star. (Is that what it’s called?? My mind just totally went blank.)
For now, I’ll keep it to one star. My colors are inspired by Sandy and Nanette. I based everything around that turquoise. I love it.
I’m excited to see this one come together.
Can you tell I’m into bright colors these days? Maybe it’s my taupe/beige walls that need some cheering up. Maybe it’s my subliminal desire for summer.I’ve always been a little (okay, a lot) intimidated by this quilt pattern. Matching points on squares is daunting enough, but diamonds cut on the bias. Eeek. But this method was so slick!
It’s from a company called QuiltSmart and is so nifty! Basically, it’s like paper piecing only you don’t use paper you use pre-printed sheets of adhesive stabilizer, that you don’t have to remove when you are done. I’m not far along, so I’ll report back on my progress. Has anyone else out there used Quilt Smart before? I think I’m hooked.
