My cutting table was looking too pretty this morning not to take a picture. I’ve been pulling for a Spring quilt and I think I finally have my choices just right. The top fabric is an Amy Butler print and it has so many other great colors in it, perfect for pulling a colorful Spring quilt together.
(I want to paint my gray walls white…it’s the perfect gray…but it would lighten the room up so much and it’s better for photos…what should I DO??!!!)
Anyways, what was I saying…I also have baby girl quilts in the works with fabrics pulled and ready to be cut.
I refreshed my solids stash this week and bought this beautiful bunch of the new Cotton and Steel solids. They feel just like the Cotton and Steel print fabrics, and also identical to the Bella and Kona solids…but these were a little bit cheaper (yay!). I had a hard time resisting ALL the colors.
My goal last month was to finish up this “fish” quilt top. It’s not the most beautiful quilt I’ve ever made…but I have a soon-to-be 9 year old who is going to flip over it. It took me 3 weeks to finally force myself to sew these blocks together. Why is so hard to make myself sew something I don’t really want to sew??!
I used my Easy Bake Pattern but cut the initial squares 9″ and the other cuts 3″. I had 1/2 yards, so that way I could get 8 – 9″ squares from each 1/2 yard. You could also make a huge disappearing 9 patch and get this block look.
It turned out very fishy…perfect for a fishing obsessed kid. Kathy already quilted it and it’s on my way home to me…so I’ll show you a better picture soon.
According to the count-down calendar in my son’s room Salmon fishing season opens up in 112 days…you know…in case you were wondering. I’m just full of helpful tidbits of fishing information. 😉
