I am still loving this project so much. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have noticed that I've gotten several comments on the fabrics I'm using and how I chose them. Since I planned on this being a project for me, I just went straight for colors that made me happy, which it turns out I have a lot of in my stash. In fact, this is the ridiculously large pile of fabrics I'm pulling from.
At least I'm not buying anything new...well, I might need a few more solids.
Generally, I'm the type to only work on one project at a time (I like to finish something and then move on), but lately I've been pulled toward so many projects that I thought I should just embrace it and see how it goes. So far, I'm kind of loving it. So most of the last few days has been dedicated to finally making a Fancy Fox quilt (actually the larger Fancy Fox II), which went together so quickly. These huge blocks (they measure 20" x 24" finished) are fantastic for a quick quilt.
Sorry for the terrible basement-lighting pics. Anyway, the top is all pieced, and I'll pulled fabrics for a scrappy backing, so hopefully I'll start on that tonight. This quilt is destined to be a charity quilt for Project Linus (part of this year's charity project for the STLMQG), so I'm hoping these colors will make a little boy very happy.
After picking up a few additional pieces from my LQS, I'm also ready to finally start on my mini for the IG Cotton + Steel mini quilt swap. I love this C+S rainbow, and I hope my partner does, too.
The hardest part was actually deciding on a pattern, but I'm pretty sure I've done that now, too.
Finally, I've just started cutting fabric for another baby quilt. I became obsessed with the idea of finally using these fabulous Birch prints for this project, but I struggled to find a pattern that highlighted them without getting too crazy. I finally decided to go with a simple triangle quilt using some coordinating solids and just little pops of the Birch prints, which I hope is the perfect compromise. I've got a lot of triangles to cut.
