Yesterday was a lot of fun but I didn't get anything accomplished....and I'm good with that. Ian and I took a clay shooting lesson in the morning then after lunch Laura and I did some fabric shopping and took a long walk.
Laura decided that she wanted to make a crib quilt for her niece's new baby, Luna. We went to the Blue Crab Quilt Company and found this adorable sheep fabric with some matching dots. Her original plan was a quilt with 6" squares but once she picked these fabrics out I knew the perfect pattern.
Mary's Quick Strippie quilt was perfect for a feature fabric with two accent fabrics. Laura had this together before she went to bed last night. She bought Minkie for the back so we will probably get this quilted tomorrow and bound Saturday or Sunday in between their other social engagements.
If you are looking for an easy pattern for a donation or quick quilt always check Mary's site. She has dozens of great patterns.
Today and tomorrow I'll get my binding class materials finished up and I might reward myself with some cutting out on the new guest room quilt.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
