This week one of the tasks that I had was to complete two quilts that we will be featured in an upcoming issue of Quiltmaker. The project is really fun as it makes not one, but two quilts.
There were a few left overs once I had the two quilt tops done so I played with the strips and before long I had this.
I absolutely love it.
The fabric is Moda’s line Chantilly. You should be able to find it in stores now as I think it came out early this year. There is a great mix of greens, aquas and reds.
This was so fun to make as I had no purpose and no deadline in mind. I just sewed them went to the design floor…sewed a bit more and back to the design floor. It was like that for a bit. Then I didn’t like a couple block so I ripped and sewed some more. Then the idea to off center it hit. That made more ripping and reorganizing but totally worth it!
So now I am awaiting a baby to give this to. I don’t have anyone in mind. In fact, I don’t know anyone who is pregnant. In the back of my mind I have an idea though. Our daughter Kalissa is taking an OB round for her nurses training. She has to observe a pregnant mother, going with her to a few appointments then be there for the delivery. If the baby is a girl, I just might pass this quilt along to that baby. We’ll see. Kalissa has to find someone yet…Know of anyone in the NE Iowa area??
I’m off to go to the post office. I need to get the two quilts in the mail and on their way to Quiltmaker.
