It's Wednesday, and I actually have some quilt related items to share! I've been slacking a bit the last two week, it was a mixture of no time, no inspiration, no energie that kept me from quilting. But now I feel like I'm back in the saddle.
I started this little quilt last Saturday. A friend of mine had her third child last week, a beautiful baby boy. She was one of the first people I got to know here after our move last year, and we've become friends really fast. So it was no question that I would make her little boy a quilt.
The fabric is Kona white mixed with 10 little things by Jenn Ski. I love her art, especially for kids, so I was really excited when she came out with this fabric line. And it's great for boys, which is not so common (no pink in this line, thank goodness!). I started this last Saturday and yesterday I finished the quilting with orange thread.
Now I just have to decide on how to bind it. My choices are Kona Lemon, Tangerine or Cardinal. Any suggestions?
On top of that, I made my first bee block! I'm part of the SD Bee, which is the bee of the San Diego Modern Quilt Guild. I'm so thrilled that the others are willing to send me their fabric all the way to Germany so I can be a part of this. Oh, how I miss the monthly meetings...
The first one in the bee is Amanda. She send us some Kona Sage and Everglade and asked us to pair it with red, orange or yellow scraps from our stash. Her circut board quilt will be gorgeous! This is so much fun to make. I have to make another block for her, this one already took much longer since I measured, ripped apart and sewed again to make it perfect. Well, almost perfect, that little bend in the middle row is far from it, but after ripping it apart for three times I gave up...
I'm linking up with Lee from freshly pieced for WIP Wednesday! Yay!
