I am back. Back again..
I had to take a break. A break from blogging.
Nothing mayor has happened, but I decided that I wanted to spend my free time not sitting at the computer. Blogging felt like an obligation for a while. That just was not right. Sewing and blogging is something I want to enjoy. So I stopped blogging for a couple of months. I didn’t stop sewing… I know you understand.
Now I am back, back again!
Back with lots of things to share!
Let’s start with two cute little projects!
It is baby season again!
This HST quilt was for a fellow teacher.
To soften the HST I quilted it with swirls.
The backing fabric has blue hearts on it! Perfect, right?!
Bound with a grey solid.
Very soft and cuddly! This quilt is rather small and meant for use in a stroller or car seat.
The second baby quilt, also for a baby boy, was for a family member.
I cut up some blue, grey, white and mint fabric. An answer key from a sudoku puzzle helped me get a “random” lay out without creating a headache, ha ha! I had enough fabric for 8×9 rows.
A local HEMA store had these cute paper clips with numbers, which helped me keep track of the different rows.
The top came together really quickly.
Added some yummy quilting.
There are actually some giraffes and rhinos on this backing fabric…. very hard to see!
Of course, also bound with a grey fabric. I love this fabric!!!
It reminds me a bit of the wallpaper in my grandparents’ house, even though it had a different color.
And after washing:
All the lovely wrinkles! This quilt is bigger than the other one and can be used as a play mat or to snuggle under.
There is one more baby boy quilt in the making and after that there are 3 girls quilts to cut out! Looks like I will be busy! 😉
See you soon with more quilts!
