Month: September 2013 (page 1 of 2)
I tried out this test block today with Kona Ash, Kaffe Fassett floral, & Kona Snow as the background fabric. I have to say, I am more than excited how easy this block is. You have no idea how badly I want to keep this beauty (how about that fussy cut center!), but it’s a block for a guild project. I’ll post more pictures of the final product in a few months.
Now that I know how easily it goes together, I’m ready to dive into my stash and make a few more! The only thing I am undecided about at this point is the size of the block, measuring in at a whopping 24.5″!! Yeah, it’s big! I’m thinking I might make the blocks a little smaller for my own project.
Last week I wrapped up the Onesie Quilt I’d been working on! As you can read in my previous post, this was a project that was out of my norm and made me step out of my comfort zone. But, I had a lot of fun doing it!
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a sweet lady, Rachel, who wanted a quilt made from some of her daughter’s favorite onsies. I’ve never really had an itch to make a quilt out of clothes & make them beautiful, like some people do. I’m not really sure what made me want to take on this project either, maybe it’s the mommy starting to come out in myself.
After a bit of research & discussion with Rachel, we decided a fun, low volume log cabin would do the trick! I wanted to make her something unique, modern, & a step away from all the traditional onesie quilts I was seeing all over the internet.
Here’s my favorite block:
Now I just have to add this great, purple, sashing (her daughter’s favorite color) & get her on Lucey to be quilted!
Happy Labor Day!!
