Spring!

Here in Southern California, there are no weather complains, but it’s officially now spring. That, combined with the fact that I HAD to take a break from the baby quilts lead me to a couple of bright vibrant pillow sleeves!

These are quick and fun to whip up. Remember how I mentioned I needed to explore yellow a bit more? In doing so, I’ve come to realize that I really don’t have that many yellow fabrics. Will have to remedy that with time!

Nice envelope openings so that these are easy to toss in the washing machine!

Both are in the shop!

and 3 more of this pattern to go. Hope you don’t get sick of seeing the same quilt, with different fabrics over and over… Some are for friends and some to sell!

These two are both now in the shop.

I hadn’t worked with strictly yellow and pink before… I kinda love it. I’m thinking I need to start exploring yellow more in general!

I worked with 50% Bamboo batting for the first time with these and I have to say, I love it! The drape is really lovely.

Next I’m gonna try to get a couple of gender neutral ones all done. Hope that you all have wonderful weekends!!

More of the same…

Squares and squares and some more squares!

Three more of the same style tops finished.

Hoping to get them all finished for the shop sooner rather than later! That means less blogging and more sewing! Off to keep at it…

That’s what I feel like these days!

Two more tops finished:

Will I ever tire of really colorful baby quilts filled with whimsical fabrics?  I don’t think so!

I don’t think I’ve yet mentioned how much this new broke my heart.  No more new Heather Ross fabrics??  The preciousness of every bit I own just increased.

While it’s fast and effective to make multiple quilts of the same pattern at once, I’m ready for something that is more organic.  I have three more of these quilts cut out but after I finish those I’m going to have to make something that makes me feel less machine-like. I’ll be due some improv piecing by then!
