Apparently, ending a huge project inspired me work on/start a bunch of little ones.
I shared the start of my rainbow mini quilt for Mid-Atlantic Mod last week. I'm so excited to bind this baby and give it away! I don't do a lot of straight matchstick quilting (very close lines) but the design called for it. Plus, I had visions of rainbows of Aurifil thread shining on the white fabric. I have some cool in process pictures that I'll share when it's done (they show too much of the design). By the way... if you guessed that I'm using orange peels, you're right!
In other news, I've started ANOTHER orange peel quilt. Shocking, right? I posted four layouts on Instagram, and almost everyone agreed on this design. The quilting is so much fun, and I can't wait to share more soon. This is for the Quilt Alliance's annual fundraiser/contest with the theme "Playing Favorites" this year. Your 16x16" quilt is donated to the Quilt Alliance, exhibited, raffled off, and documented in the Quilt Index. Click here to read more.
This fabric pull is for a new class sample for one of my next classes in development. The inaugural class is going to be held at a guild this summer (details tentative, but hopefully it will be finalized soon!). Those Lizzy House butterflies have SO many amazing colors!
Finally, I finished my block for the Paintbrush Studio New Block Blog Hop. Pop back on Monday to see this one and all the others! This is just the first stage of making the block. :)
See you on Friday for some thoughts on quilt guild leadership and a special gift I recently received.
Linking up to Needle and Thread Thursday.
