on my table

on my table

A little quilt is in progress for my sister's soon-to-be-born baby girl from that stack of cuteness that was summoning me Sunday night.

for a soon-to-be baby

I'm testing out a new pattern designed by Kate of One Flew Over, working with fabrics that showcase well as 2" wide strips like the owls, hearts and butterflies.  More details when I finish up!

What's on your table today?

  2. The green is such a great choice with your prints. This will make a very happy quilt! As for my sewing table, I have a couple of mini quilts to finish, as well as my Solids swap items, but they will probably be sitting there until the weekend. This week is hectic!

  7. Nothing sewing related. I start work tomorrow after 4 months maternity leave and we close on our house we are selling next week, so those things take precedence. Maybe, once the kids get back to school I'll do a bit.

  10. Gasp! I'm having twin boys in a few months... do you wanna make a couple for me too? Just kidding. I really do love the colors in those fabrics though. If I could, I would decorate the entire nursery in Ann Kelle stuff!

  11. I love the colors so much happier than pale pink or blue. Babies love bright color. I am doing a quilt called This and That in Kaffe fabric so you know I love color.

  13. Cute quilt! What are the final dimensions? I'm also working on a baby quilt using Seuss in a pinwheel formation. No photos yet as I only have time for a few blocks each evening due to a job that keeps me away from home 11 hours a day.

  14. Love those fabrics, really beautiful piece. I am still working on the same thing. Hopefully the stiff joints will go away soon and I can get back to quilting faster.

  18. That's funny, I have a bunch of 2" strips on my table as well! It's for the Love of Solids Flickr swap and is well out of my comfort zone but I'm liking it so far...

  19. The final dimensions for this quilt top is about 42" square. Thanks, ladies!

  20. Looks great! Can't wait to see how you finish it. Happy sewing, Rachel.

  21. How to choose!? I love the look of Cuiro but I also love the look of the Ruby jelly roll. But then the bundles of Heirloom... oh my. I also see the perle cotton kits. Oh my again!

  22. Those are the perfect scale for 2 inch strips, especially the butterflies. It gives a really interesting look to the quilt, a much different look than a smaller scale fabric would have. Is that the layout you are using? I haven't seen the pattern.

  23. That is seriously adorable! Are you using a jelly roll, or did you have to fussycut the strips from yardage? Also, when does the pattern you're testing come out?
