It's been a busy week.
My niece is expecting a baby girl in a few weeks and I need to make them a cuddle quilt.
I like my baby quilts to cover Momma and Baby.
Way back in 2013, I participated in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge at SoScrappy blog.
I planned to make a row quilt and true to form,
I got part way through the year and stopped,
and now I have a box of awesome 6" blocks.
Then Bonnie writes a post about Getting Serious With Scrap Reduction.
She shows a picture of Dancing Dashes and that's all I needed to get this quilt started.
I grabbed some yellow polka dot for sashing and soft lavender for the corner stones.
I'm hoping to have this top together before Thursday.
Maybe I'll name this Dashing Dashes and Friends.
Because Friday is Mystery Day!!
I finally pulled my fabrics for On Ringo Lake.
I don't have one single piece of fabric in Bonnie's main colors so I went stash diving.
Red, Blue, Black and Creamy Neutrals
Depending on the clues and sizes of pieces needed,
I'll pull from my strip bins and deeper into the stash.
Granddaughter Taylor will turn 18 in a few days.
She had hinted about a quilt with black, white and aqua.
How could I say no.
I knew Bonnie's Scrappy Trips was a perfect design.
This is found on the Quiltville free patterns page.
Fun strips were pulled from the black and white strip bin.
Most of them were from strip swaps at retreats.
I had a blast quilting this.
Somewhat straight lines in a random pattern.
I used gray thread and my walking foot.
Finally En Provence is finished!
These photos are from Jane right after she quilted it for me.
We decided soft yellow thread would be perfect.
The panto is called Lovely by My Creative Stitches.
And Lovely it is!
I used bright pink for the binding.
It's been dark, gloomy and wet here so no full on pictures.
