Quilt Tops, in progress

I spent some time on Saturday crafting 2 quilt tops. I had some fabric planned for the backs, but once I saw them together I decided they just didn’t work. A trip to the fabric store is in order. In the meantime, here are some in-progress shots of the tops.

I love those swatches and coffee too.

Ready to be sewn together. I am liking this neutral one, like a jar of lentils. I still can’t decide what color would be good for the backing.

I like the long pieces and richer colors used for this one. Another hard backing decision awaits me.

These are both put together using the obsolete fabric swatch books (Thanks, Sandhya!) I used to make the party flags for Felix’ 1st Birthday Party.

Look for updates on these in a few days…

Quick Quilt (and other etsy updates)

I’ve broadened my horizons. My Etsy shop now has tees with paintings of fish, bugs and a running hare! Also newly added to the shop are two onesies with appliques, and a few more bird T shirts.

With some pieces left over from the party flags, I patched together a quick lap sized quilt (29 x 33″). It’s been years since I’ve worked on a quilt and I have to say it was much fun! The layout was completely random. I have some more quilting ideas in the works, so stay tuned. Here are a few pics of the Quilt, which can also be purchased in my Etsy Shop: Turnip Attire. (baby not included.)

Oh, and if you mention redrecliner, I’ll take 10 % off your purchase.
