First off, I raided my stash of black and white scraps and threw in a solid red for a new quilt from my good friend Andy Knowlton's new Fresh Fat-Quarter Quilts book. I am super excited for this project ;) The quilt will make an awesome Rally quilt, which of course, is why it is in classic Red, White, and Black. Yup, this one is destined to get an SUU logo and be donated next year ;) I got this all cut out on Tuesday and started some stitching on it yesterday and I am already just thrilled with how it is coming together. Can't wait to share more on this in a couple of weeks!!
Next, I agreed to get in a Pillow Fight this week and I will explain more on that in the future. But for now, I am super excited to pull my color/white squares off the shelf. I sorted these squares separately when I was starting to work on my Scraptastic Stars Quilt. They all read a white background with a color and I figured they would make a cool project someday. And I excited to see them in a pillow from Edyta Star's new Pillow Talk Book :) I am thinking patchwork rainbow, eeekk!!
And lastly, my sister called and asked if I could make her a "baby dragon girl" quilt. And of course, I love my sister so I said yes, even though I had absolutely no idea what I was going to make. So I searched baby dragon images and found this adorable little sketch. Cue the Layered Applique. And with all the applique, I knew I wanted to use a basic fabric, and I found these Riley Blake Shades in my stash. And I think they will be just the perfect amount of solid with some texture to make these dragons. This is going to be so cute!!! Here is hoping I can make what is in my mind work out ;) Wish me luck!!
So that is what I am going to be working on this weekend :)
What are you going to be Happy Quilting for the next few days??
