It’s so tough to pick my current favorite quilt to feature in Amy’s online quilt festival (such a fun idea!) but I’m going to have to go with the Red & Aqua lap quilt. I love it – who doesn’t love the color combo??

Red & Aqua Quilt

I used white in both the sashing and the blocks in the quilt and I love the framing it creates for each and every fabric in the quilt.

I originally posted about the quilt here.

Ok – it’s not completely different – it is “me” in that it’s improv. pieced, but this is way out of my comfort zone!

Lantern Bloom Quilt beginnings

And I love it! Holes to fill and It’s going to be a full sized quilt so I have a long way to go but so far so good. In this photo the purple pops more than it does in person and what looks like black here is actually dark brown… I think that I’m only going to grow to like this more and more as I keep working on it. And I’m officially a purple convert! Don’t think that I’ll suddenly be using it tons, but I’m loving it in this quilt.

And it took about .2 seconds for me to fall in love with this Lantern Bloom fabric line.

Normally I go for more graphic stuff, but this is some pretty pretty fabric… Ok – back to it!

Fallish

Here in LA, we hardly feel fall show up.  But the past few days have been so so wonderful. Sunny and cool (for LA) and it’s put me in a fall mood!  After making the huge hexagon quilt I wanted to make a quick and fun little project so I put together this little stroller quilt.  It’s small – 24″ x 36″.

Stroller Quilt

It’s actually a sample for a new class that I’m going to be teaching Pasadena at The Common Thread Studio.  It’s another beginners quilting class that will happen in November.

And now – back to work on the commissioned quilt!  Should be able to show you the beginnings of things later this week!

The next quilt…

Some beautiful Lantern Bloom fat quarters for my next quilt!

Lantern Bloom FQs

A commission that will have no white included! I’m so excited to be pushed out of my comfort zone with this fabric and quilt. Can’t wait to get started.

Today is my last day on the most recent job… Oh beloved sewing machine – we are soon to be together again!

Happy weekend to you all!
