Stuffs

Not much going on over here, but I did manage to get some quilts hung on walls.  It’s an explosion of pink in Sophie’s room! (quilt is from my book)

I pulled these fabrics for a Twin quilt for her.  I’m obsessed with this color combo:

And I finally got one of these gadgets…I’m hoping it can save my nails from breaking every time I baste a quilt!

When the sky gets gray…the fabric gets BRIGHT!

Hope you all have a great week…I’m ready to wrap up February and move onto March!  :)

Blue   Green   Low Volume, Cluck Cluck Sew

This quilt turned out so calm and breezy looking even though it was packed with different fabrics.

This is what became of all the HST’s I showed you a few weeks ago.

I used this method to make the pinwheels (scroll to the bottom of the post).  I started with 6 1/2” squares…and ended up with 7 1/2” pinwheels after trimming.  Once you finish the pinwheels all you need is 2 1/2” x 7 1/2” strips and 2 1/2” squares to make up this simple quilt.

Music Fabric

It’s full of fabrics from my stash and scrap bin…I had a lot more neutrals than I thought once I started scrounging.  That big black and white Kaffe Fassett polka dot is my favorite.

Pinwheels, Cluck Cluck Sew

It measures about 47” x 56”.  A pod of Orcas swam by to inspect my work while we were at this beach…and then my 4 year old dumped a beach bucket full of sand in my van.  :) 

Never a dull moment here!  Happy quilting!

Tango

Tango Quilt Pattern

This is the last of my new patterns…then I’ll blog about something else I promise!  :)  This was a quick-finish-quilt that I made with some of my Denyse Schmidt stash.  Her lines Florence and Chicopee blend so well together! 

Tango Binding

Tango Quilt, Lap Size

It’s a bit out of my color-comfort zone…it’s kind of a crazy combo but it works when it’s all said and done.

Tango

Tango Pattern, Cluck Cluck Sew

This pattern is beginner friendly…sort of a mix between Juice Boxes and Skipping Squares.  It’s almost the same design as my Briar Rose quilt I made last summer:

Briar Rose Quilt

This one is also in my pattern shop and is starting to pop up in quilt shops!

We surprised our kids and went to Disneyland last week…the weather was warm and the lines were short…it was perfect.  Exhausting…and perfect.
