Those of you who read my blog often know that I usually only work on one project at a time. I know that some (okay most) of you prefer to have several things going on at once, but I get a lot more accomplished when I stay disciplined and finish one thing before I start something new. That being said, I actually have a few different things happening around here these days! I know you're shocked!
By far, the biggest thing I'm working on is a twin sized commissioned quilt with several Heather Bailey fabrics from the Pop Garden and Freshcut lines. This quilt is destined to be the bedding for a toddler's "big girl" room and the fabrics are so sunny and sweet!
The person who ordered this quilt had a very distinct vision for the fabrics in this quilt, and so after talking with her, we decided that it might be best if she purchased all of the fabrics herself. She put together a collection of photos of the fabrics and I made sure that there was enough color variation, etc. before she ordered them. I was also very specific about the number of prints and yardage of each for front, back, and binding. She did a fantastic job picking them out!
So, last week when I was waiting on the backing fabric to arrive for my Vintage Closet quilt, and I did not have these Heather Bailey fabrics yet, I started playing around with my scrap jars. I've been wanting to make a scrappy rainbow quilt for awhile, so I just emptied out my pinks and reds, and went to town.
After I finish the Heather Bailey quilt, it is ON with the rest of the rainbow! The final thing I've been working on is my second published pattern- Gyroscope! I created this pattern and made the quilt, Carousel Ride last January, but I've just gotten a chance to get the pattern written out (thank you summer!)
Since the backdrop of photos in January is brown, dead, and ugly, I borrowed the quilt from it's owner today and took a few photos befitting a pattern cover. I hope to have this one in my Craftsy and Etsy shops soon!
Wild thing has sports camp at church this week for a few hours each day, so I'm planning to do some major prioritizing during that time to finish the quilt and put the finishing touches on the pattern. Hopefully I can share both at Needle and Thread Thursday this week!
