Last weekend I was all about the fabric. I went to the quilt shop with my friend and we took our time touching everything trying to choose the right fabrics for a quilt for her baby boy. I'm making a version of the quilt for another friend as well so we had two piles growing and changing over the course of an hour or so.
When I got home i couldn't wait to start cutting and stitching, however I'm still in need of some more fabric so I washed and ironed and set it aside to work on two other projects.
These baby bloomers are for a different friend's baby. They are having girl this time around and I'm elated! I used a pattern I got from crafts and though i hit a few frustrating points with teeny tiny pieces, I'd make them again. The first time with a pattern can be a great learning experience :)
The next project I tackled was the backing for my tree quilt. I pulled the left over fabrics from the front to help create a vibrant strip of color and make the piecing look more intentional. I love how the colors pop and the lightness of the main backing color totally contrasts the dark grey front. It's stacked and basted and ready for quilting!
1. Decide on how to quilt the tree
2. Aquire some fabric for the baby quilt
3. Start cutting triangles!
