First of all, here is a sneak preview of the fabrics I am using in a future baby quilt tutorial that will be published online. I cannot contain my excitement! The patterns and colours are dreamy and I will get to work with fabrics from one of my favourite ranges, Far Far Away by Heather Ross. In the words of Forrest Gump "that's all I have to say about that" (for now.)
Yesterday I was incredibly industrious. I cut 99 5" squares, pieced them to make a quilt top and then basted this, meaning today I am ready to quilt and bind. I wanted to make another quilt from stash and scrap fabrics, and was determined it would be for a boy, because I am aware that I seem to make baby girl quilts more often. There is a imbalance in my stash in favour of girly fabrics, so it was difficult to put these fabrics together. I felt I was scraping the barrel at times, but it is looking alright in the end. There are lots of transport related fabrics here, and I think the pirate fabric matches this as well because of the connection to ships (tenuous, I know!)
I'm just going to quilt some simple tramlines and then this will be a quick project. Today should be a satisfying Sunday.
Thank you for popping by.
