Remember this little stack? From a hundred years ago?
Well, it now looks like this:
My in-laws were visiting this last weekend. To see your new place and to see their grandkids. That gave me a whole uninterrupted Sunday morning in my brand new studio. I loved it, three hours of sewing in bright daylight. While I was happily sewing away, I realized how much I missed this. So I sneaked in every second I could and by Monday evening I had a finished quilt top. I call it the Fabler-Fandango-Mash-up, since the little animal fabric is from IKEA's Fabler line and the rest is Fandango by Kate Spain. I love how it turned out. It will be a gift for a friend who's expecting a girl at the end of September.
Another friend already had her second baby in the beginning of July. Since I was kind of busy with moving then, I still need to make a quilt for her little boy. So yesterday I pulled some boy fabrics from my stash and started this:
While making the Fabler-Fandango top, I realized that most of the projects I did lately were either square-in-square or log cabin quilts. So I decided to spruce things up a bit and step out of my comfort zone. A zig-zag quilt is a nice start, no?
