Forgotten Finish

This one is an old finish, but a new post.  I made this baby quilt more than  a year ago before we even left Korea.

Somehow (shocking) it got lost for months in the melee of the move.  The pattern is from a beautiful tutorial by Bonjour Quilts.  The fabric is a mix of Sweetcakes by Riley Blake and assorted solids from my stash.

IMG_0736Those pink prints remind me of Strawberry Shortcake Dolls from my misspent 80’s youth.  I can almost smell her fake strawberry-scenetd nylon hair…sigh…good times.  Hopefully the gray and the modern pattern offset that sickly sweet girly girl thing.

IMG_0741IMG_0737It’s sparsely quilted echoing the lines on the front of the quilt in pink thread.  This was made in the days before I even thought about learning to free-motion quilt.  I don’t think FMQ would have added much to this quilt, though.  The simple, straight lines make sense to me here.

What’s new?

Been waaaay too long since I’ve taken time to post!  I need to get back in the habit.  Here’s what’s been cooking lately:

Isn’t this fun?  It’s a bag I made using Riley Blake’s Union Jack fabric.  The pattern is modified from a Sew Serendipity Bags pattern that fits the size of the flag print just perfectly.

I love how it turned out.  I kind of want to keep it for myself, but it is part of several projects I’m making to sell, so stay tuned for news of that.

IMG_0044I obviously have a lot of work to do learning how to take pics that aren’t BLURRY!  Must work on that!
