I've been working on a couple of quilts this summer. One is for a Stake service project. I don't have a picture of that one yet. It's cute but simple...6" blocks in yellow, white, and black. I think I'll just tie it if I ever get around to putting the border on it.
This one was super quick and easy, but I think it's fun! I'm hoping to get it quilted with the thread that is multi-colored.
This is one that has been in the works for about 2 years.
I'll be honest...I love it.
When I went to a FACS Summer Conference 2 years ago, I saw a quilt that looked similar to this. I loved it and wanted it! Over the next few months, I collected fabric (some from leftover student projects, my own leftovers, and some that I just bought).
Last summer, I finally started to cut and piece it. I made the little pinwheel blocks last year. Then I put it away and forgot about it.
I was at my friend Heather's the other day, and her amazing and super organized craft room made me want to quilt!
So I came home and pulled it out again! I worked on it most of last Friday and finished it Saturday morning. I also managed to finish a season of Lost in the process :)
Now I just need to take them in and get them quilted. Then the binding.
What am I doing with these? Who knows. I've got a pretty good idea for the first one. Most say I should keep the second one for myself. But I don't plan on having a baby anytime soon. And I told myself that I need to stop keeping everything I make. I already have a bunch of baby quilts stashed at home from my 4-H days. Perhaps if I weren't so lazy and made bigger quilts, it wouldn't be so hard to find a use :)
