1) Baby Jane Quilt - I have been working non-stop on my first commission for the past couple of weeks. I actually finished this one right before Labor Day weekend, but I can't share it because it hasn't been gifted yet. Chances are incredibly slim that it would be seen, but you know how that goes! I am itching to post about it, so this mention is just to tide me over until I can hit "Publish." How cute is that Baby Jane Stripe as binding?
Looking through my past projects, I've realized that my favorite quilts are the ones that use multiple lines of fabric and the ones that have very little white in them. Because of this I am trying to thin out my precut collection (some have been sitting around for almost two years!), while trying to break out of my background fabric comfort zone! The next two quilt tops are part of this mission.
2) Patchwork Heart // I chose a heart-related pattern because there were a couple charms with heart prints, plus many other prints that reminded me of the circulatory system. There were many paths of inspiration leading to the heart design I chose, but a majority of those led back to the Pixelated Heart design by Blue Elephant Stitches. My heart quilt is made with two 6" Kaffe Fassett Fire charm packs and Michael Miller Ta Dot Teal.
The Cocoa is really hard to photograph. The picture below represents it better, though the look changes so much depending on the lighting situation. I will be channel quilting this one. I think I will be skipping the last border and bind it using the Green and White Stripe from Marmalade.
Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced this week.
