My productivity continues after a great First Friday Night Sew-In experience. While I was browsing quilting blogs the other day I came across this quilt (and really nice tutorial) by Burgundy Buttons. So rather than finish the binding on pink and chocolate quilt, I decided to start another project. I used a layer cake of the Freebird line by MoMo for Moda. Here's what I have done so far!
Each square needs to be trimmed down to 4.5" and I think
these scraps are too pretty!
The pattern calls for brown sashing between each 4.5" square.
But I think I like the way it looks now better. What do you think??
My First Friday Night Sew-In was last night. Once I was settled in sewing, it was pedal to the metal!
I had these Luna II by Maywood fat quarters in my stash and decided it was time to use them. The chocolate brown and pink combination screamed "baby blanket" at me. I just wanted a simple pattern using 2.5" strips.
Here's a picture of me straight-line quilting the baby blanket. Sorry there aren't more progress pictures, I just got so wrapped up in sewing I forgot to take some pictures of just the top. Oops!
I'm hoping this motivation stays long enough for me to get the binding sewed on this afternoon. I can't wait to check out everyone else's Friday Night Sew-In results!
I have decided to participate in my first Friday Night Sew-In this Friday night and luckily I have the night off from work! PJs and sewing, it doesn't get much better than that! Now to decide what to work on....I'm sure it won't be too hard to come up with some projects. :) I am really looking forward to it and can't wait to see everyone else's projects too!
Here it is! After a hard days work, I have finished the red, white, and blue quilt I've been working on. I designed the pattern myself with inspiration from this quilt by Oh Fransson! and am really happy with the way it turned out. It only took two charm packs, plus a little yardage from The Hamptons line for Moda fabrics. The finished size is 60" x 60".
I hope to have time later this week to quilt it. The plan at the moment is to straight-line quilt it, 1/2 inch apart on the diagonal following the lines of the half-square triangles. I can't wait to see it after it's quilted! What do you think?
