Right now, I'm working on three quilts: A tshirt quilt for my uncle, a baby quilt for a friend of a friend, and a scrappy trip along. I started cutting out squares for my uncle's quilt, but I ran out of interfacing and had to order more, so that got put to the side. I've got all of my strips cut for the STA, now I just need to sew them into squares and then a quilt top! In my last post, I finished my quilt barf top. Really, I just need to get something for the back and some batting and I can finish that up too.
But over break, I finished all of the squares for the baby quilt I'm working on. It's LeAnne Ballard's Marmalade Squares quilt from the Moda Bakeshop. It is the cutest quilt, and I thought it would be perfect for the little girl that's coming in July. I got to try my hand at machine applique for the first time, and I'll be free motion quilting this. Big first times here!
The photo is sideways, but the effect is the same.
The color pallet we decided on was "garden in spring at sunset", if that makes sense. Lots of soft colors, lots of green, and just the right amount of femininity without screaming "LOOK AT ME I'M A BABY GIRL".
Those patchwork squares, man. They look so easy, but it's really hard for me to keep everything straight. Oh well. I think it all looks awesome, and I'm really excited to finish it up!
Linking up to WIP Wednesday!
