You know, when something bright and shiny catches your eye and you just have to pursue it? In my case, it's fabric colours and combinations. I had no sooner posted my first quarter goals, when I was distracted by some charm squares on my cutting table. Having a challenge to produce baby boy preemie quilts for the Blue Mountain Quilters Guild's next meeting, I jumped right in! Before last Saturday was over I had produced a quilt top.
It took me the week to find time to quilt it and then I finished the binding yesterday.
The quilting in the white spaces was inspired by a design in Christina Cameli's (a few scraps) new book
I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for some very good designs, well explained in Christina's wonderful clear manner, definitely a great reference book.
This was actually the second boy quilt I made this year. I finally made a quilt from my Disappearing 4 Patch tutorial that used more than 4 blocks! I kept the colours subtle to keep it soft and soothing, and I also kept the quilting to a minimum, although I did use it as a practice piece for stitching in the ditch.
