This past week I have been super productive in my quilt room! I finished a quilt top and then right away started another new quilt!
I am usually the queen of starting ( but not finishing) a new quilt, and then getting distracted by yet something else and starting ( but not finishing ) that next project. Just in case I start to feel really awesome about my ability to actually see a project through, I have to admit that I have not finished quilting my Churn Dash quilt….hahaha, see, it is still me ;). Speaking of my Churn Dash quilt, I want to thank those of you who gave me name suggestions. There were so many great suggestions that it was really hard to choose! I ended up picking “Beatrix’s Crossing” suggested by nanasews4jax. I thought that would be a perfect title to commemorate my Peter Rabbit garden, as well as the times we find ourselves in now, at a crossroads of sorts. Nanasews4jax, please email me with your name and mailing address and I will pop a little surprise in the mail for you!
The newest quilt I just started working on came out of this book:
I already love the title of this book of course, but one particular quilt really caught my eye right away. I just love the simplicity of it and it does look like it came straight out of a farmhouse, doesn’t it?
This pattern is called Wash Day and I love that title too! I of course had to change up the colors just a little bit…I always start with the best intentions of sticking to a particular color scheme and then inevitably veer off into my own happy colors….
But don’t you just love the wordy print? That is a Riley Blake backing fabric but I am using it in the top of my quilt. The words are perfect for this time period, don’t you agree?
And here is a peek at some of the blocks….
and at some of the rows….
These blocks are super simple to construct and I’m so enjoying putting the colors together! The book has more adorable projects other than the Wash Day quilt too. Here are a few others I’m eyeing already:
So this book comes highly recommended by yours truly, if you are into these kinds of quilts and projects ;). Here is the link again for your convenience: http://shrsl.com/2c9ah
Well, that is all for this week!
Until next time~happy creating!
