A great while back, it seems, I showed you Aria's Sherbet Pips charm square quilt in process? She did the layout, pinning and piecing all by herself. Yes, it had plenty of, um, character at the end, but I just trimmed up the edges for her and she was good to go.
Don't her hands look so sweet and little? There's no way she's going to be turning seven soon...
The kiddos and I ventured out before rest time to find a shady spot for a mini photo shoot. Here we are by the garden fence, which is covered with wild morning glories at this time of year. Oh, that sounds like a good thing? Well, to keep it real they rarely bloom, take over like a weed and leave brittle, dry sticks on the fence after the autumn chill. But, at least they're a green backdrop for Aria's first quilt today!
And here's another finish. This pattern is "90 Degrees" and you can find it at Kate's blog, One Flew Over. The basic design is a large quarter log cabin, sliced and reassembled and set in a 4 x 4 configuration. Kate's pattern includes all the cutting directions and fabric requirements too - oh, and the option for a twin size version. It was a fun, no-brainer little project that came together with ease.
Wait, does Liam look distracted?
Yeah, he kinda was.
Here's the quilt back, photographed over here after a little pig-weed-feeding breakout session (feeding the weeds to the pigs, not the other way around). My models were feeling a little put upon by this point, so I was lucky to catch a clear image, even if it is sideways...
But, I hope you can make out between the two of these images, the squared-off spiral quilting in each of the four quilt quadrants. That was fun, and easy. Would totally do it again!
And, I'm happy with the resulting texture! The backing is pieced with scrap fabrics and lots of Kona papaya, a new favorite. Bound with Kona cotton candy.
Another quilt finished - 2 down, 2 to go. Since we're halfway through the month, my goal is still feeling realistic. I'm going to wrap up this baby quilt (finished 42" square) for my sister's new little one and start stitching up another!
