It has been a while since I have had more than a day off here and there, so this weekend has been a blessing. Night shifts can really leave one disconnected, and I went with the need to be in touch with my quilty-self.
I have been working on two baby quilts … Yes, more babies to welcome. Neither couple know what they are having. I have gone with the mothers choice of fabrics for the first. It uses a lovely charm pack of Terrain, from Kate Spain. It has rich, vibrant colours, which really have come together in this ‘stack’ type quilt.
It will be backed in a rich purple labeled as petunia. Binding is a toss up between a black or an orange spot. I am leaning towards the orange at this stage. Will contrast beautifully with the purple backing.
The second quilt is using a Max & Whiskers charm pack. Again in a stack pattern, I have sashed in grey. I found some lovely fabric at Spotlight this weekend which will be perfect for that something that it is missing right now.
