Prolific Day Off Quilting!

>> Thursday, October 13, 2011

I now understand why people take so many projects with them when they go on retreat! These three projects I tackled in the afternoon of my day off. The morning I spent making the backing for my son's Christmas quilt. I need a little more batting and then I can start quilting it.

 I fused all 6 of my baskets for my newest fall project. I'm calling it Hybrid Happiness Baskets.  I first wrote about it here.

 After asking for suggestions and letting it sit a while longer. . . peach petals! Which is completely out of my colour comfort zone, but they look pretty cool with those blue leaves. I'm planning to blanket stitch around them with some lavender thread.
This project started during my Follow Your Bliss Makealong. 

I took a chance and cut my side and corner triangles for this project. I'm not entirely thrilled with the purple corners - it's not what I envisioned. But, I will live with it as I don't have enough of the fabrics to redo it a different way.
You can read about how this project started here.
Now I am thinking of this as the Fat Quarter Tree Section of possibly a 4 section quilt of the seasons?

With Joy,
Sarah Vee
