Finishing one and starting another!

Almost done here… just the binding left.

Blue&Green&Yellow quilting detail

What will I do when I run out of Heather Ross dogs?? I love them so. Good thing I just bought more in dark yellow & orange because you can’t find the blue anymore…

My mother requested a quilt and sent me loads of fabric to make it with. I love the challenge of working with the fabrics you’re given, while keeping your personal style in the quilt.

Here’s the fabrics I’m going to be using… I love the colors but wouldn’t have picked them myself so I’m excited for this one. Also a lot more solids than I usually work with so that will be really fun too.

Next Quilt

I’m thinking more improv pieced blocks with off white sashing. Kinda like these, but not as loud because I won’t be using nearly as many patterned fabrics… I’m going to get started soon! Maybe even today!

    I like your quilt and your fabrics! What kind of machine do you use to do the free motion? I have a quilt I’m making and want to quilt it myself, but I’m not sure that I can… It will be my first.

    Those solids will look striking in improv pieced blocks.

    I like the quilt a lot! You are like me, I just finished quilting a few of my own quilts now I have to bind them. I do love the binding process. I can’t wait to see what you will be making for your mom.

    such beautiful fabrics. I love the latest quilt. I know what you mean about the fabric. I feel the same about the gnome print. I can’t find it anywhere, and I love it. heather ross fabric is so nice.
