I got started with the quilting for Doc, the May Schnibble.
|Pieced with two California Girl charm packs and some white background fabric. Don't look at the corners too closely... I just couldn't make those borders line up properly!|
|I quilted straight lines throughout and used the same lime green I used for the cornerstones for the binding. The quilt finishes at 42" square. The perfect size for a baby quilt.|
Next, I got started on a new project. My boss (who's also a dear friend I have known for 15 years now) is turning 50 this August. So I decided I would make her a nice lap quilt for her birthday. I had a really hard time deciding which fabric to use for her quilt because she's really not a "girly girl" and HATES pink! :-) In the end, I decided to go with Blueberry Crumbcake charms and a beige background fabric.
|Pattern: Happy Weekender (found at the Moda Bakeshop)|
Designer: Kim Niedzwiecki
Size: 66.5" x 58.5"
And lastly, I completed Block 1 of the Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery BOM. I signed up for this BOM program a couple of years, but still haven't finished all the blocks. So I had decided not to sign up for another one... ever! But when I saw this year's fabric choice - Vintage Modern - I crumbled and gave in! And I'm so happy I did - how cute is this! :-)
I'm super excited about all the projects I'm working on right now. I love that piecing is getting easier for me, my seams are lining up nicely, my blocks are the right size and I'm not unpicking stitches nearly as often as I used to. I can feel my confidence growing when it comes to quilting my "creations" because I'm not trying to be perfect - I'm just trying to get better! It's awesome! :-)
