New Baby Quilt Top & QuiltCon!

Fussy Fairytales Pattern + Everyday Party + Bella Solids Porcelain (love this white!) + assorted blenders. I was really hoping to have this quilt done by now, but a cold slowed me down. Hopefully little Shylah won't notice that it is a few weeks late! ;) I made the quilt top smaller than the pattern size and I accidentally made the blocks the wrong size, so I was shocked when the floating square border ended up working out correctly. This is the first quilt top that I have pieced with my Juki and I am still loving it!

I really want to use the red stripe fabric for the binding, but it makes my eyes go crazy. I had to look to the side when ironing so that my vision would stop vibrating! I might have to find a wider stripe.

On Wednesday, I am heading to Austin for QuiltCon. I have never taken any sewing or quilting classes before, so this will be a totally new experience for me. I am excited to learn some new skills and techniques!

I am almost done packing, but I am having a difficult time deciding which fabrics to bring to my classes. At this point, I am tempted to drag around a giant suitcase full of fabric options!
