No painting for me yesterday! I did spend a bit of time moving some things around in the newly painted bedroom. And I worked on my new little quilt that I shared yesterday. I started laying out pieces like this.
I got it quilted and found some leftover binding to finish it off. I got off work at 9 last night and after taking the dog out, settled down with a bit of hand binding with Bonnie.
Have you ever watched Bonnie Hunter’s (Quiltville) Quilt Cam? First time I heard of it, I thought it odd. Watching someone quilt via web cam? But then I decided to watch one night while sewing in a hotel room when I was traveling alone. And it was rather fun! Bonnie gives tips and tricks as she sews, explains what she is working on etc. it is interesting to see a master at work and Bonnie is so down to earth and fun.
I got a bit of fabric in the mail yesterday for another project.
As you can see, the block is the right colors/style but more faded looking. I think this is an old block that was scanned and is being reprinted kind of like Spoonflower fabric. I thought when I purchased that it was a regular reproduction print like Mary Koval’s line shown above. I’m not quite sure what I will do with this now. A faded center medallion is not what I had in mind. I do not fault the seller, I should have done more research.
I want to make some more baby quilts to have on hand, especially boy quilts. I’m thinking of making some very simply pieced graphic quilts made with these solids.
I’m itching to get something on the frame to quilt!
