Brrr!

A bit ago I was lucky enough to be sent some of Laurie Wisburn‘s latest fabric line Brrr! It’s so cute!

I pulled some grays (because let’s be honest, when do I not??) and added what is fast becoming one of my favorite neutral fabrics, Robert Kaufman’s Yarn Dyed Essex Linen, Flax. It reads like a linen but is easier to work with since it’s a cotton blend. It’s gonna go so well with these lil’ polar bears!

Brrr with Solids

I made the first few cuts into the fabric this weekend and look forward to putting together a little (boy) baby quilt!

Broken Plaid

I finished up this quilt!

Lots of dense straight line quilting that fills in the piecing pattern and then continues across the rest of the quilt.

Here’s a detail of the quilting on the back… All that stopping and starting with the straight lines takes a lot of time, but it’s so worth the end results!

Happy weekend to all of you!
