My creative process has been in gridlock for a few months and the ideas are startin' to flow. I've also got and an ever-growing stash that needs to be used. Even though I haven't been sewing that much, I've still been buying fabric impulsively, just as I've been doing for years, but not actually using it. I can't in good conscience keep buying fabric without actually cutting it up.
So, I busted out 15 fat quarters and some white fabric to make this queen size rainbow-liciousness:
I used some new and old FQs with some nice white muslin and used Steffani's St. Louis 16-patch tute to throw this thing together lickety split. I looove this so good. I'm pulling fabric for another one that's gonna be all vintage-inspired florals - very Laura Ashley.
And this is block #1 for the Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild's Quilts of Valor project. I'm so excited about this project - I love the idea of our quilt guild ladies making a quilt for a veteran. There's nothing better than creating something that you love and then giving it to someone out of love and gratitude. Can't wait to see what the other guild ladies make!
Oh man - this is some big news.
This handsome little fella is comin' to live with us.
We pick him up on Sunday.
