I spent most of April and May sewing up baby quilts for all the new babies that are coming this year, both family and friends. I sat and made a list for the 2nd half of the year of more projects and lucky for me, it's a short list.
The first project on my list is a housewarming gift for one of my daughter's best friends. She's been thru a lot the last 3 years but has landed on her feet and moved out of her family house this weekend. The move happened really fast so I didn't have time to plan ahead but never fear....I have a headful of ideas. I'm using a black on white little tiny square for the background fabric and then pulling 2 inch strips from my "string bin" to make a very scrappy rectangle strip quilt....
I'm going to work on this as my June Leader/Ender project so with luck i'm done mid July.
The LAST project I bought before I decided not to shop for the 2nd half of the year is "SWISS" by Bonnie & Camille.......
SWISS uses 12 red fat quarters with 1-1/4 yards of a solid white....It finishes at 56 X 64 and will be PERFECT for ME for my TV watching at night :) Anyone that knows me KNOWS how much I love red. I've got it all cut up and last night while watching Outlander, I got the 6-1/2 inch white strips sewn to the little red sides!!! It's going to be a quick finish I think!
The only thing I'm throwing around in the back of my head is making 1 of the PLUS blocks red just to add a little "something" to it and give it a little "Peggy Touch".......I'll keep you posted.
Well, since it's a pretty ugly day here I think I'll spend it in my room making blocks....anyone out there joining me?
