Well as my work in progress list is now down to 4 I thought I really should start dreaming up some new quilts and planning a little sewing for the next month or so.
There are 3 people who I really
need want to make quilts for this year. Firstly my new niece due on Sunday (or within 10 days or so) but she won't be getting her quilt until February.
My sister in law wanted something that wasn't too pink and hopefully this collection still looks girly enough without being all pink! Fabrics are a mixture of Riley Blake and Sarah Jane Children at Play. I am thinking of log cabin blocks with some bigger squares like Retro Starburst from Material Obsession 1.
Since I made this lap quilt for my Dad my Mum has been hinting that she would really like one. I am aiming to get something done for sometime in the spring.
My Mum brought me this stack of fat quarters back from Canada "because the colours reminded her of the mountains". They aren't really my colours so I decided to make something for her from them. I didn't have enough to make a quilt and nothing from my stash went with them. Luckily I found 2 charm packs at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham last August. I am planning on making a zig zag quilt hoping it will remind my Mum of the mountains.
My sister is 30 in September. Other family members have got quilts for recent 30th, 60th and 80th birthday celebrations so naturally she is expecting a quilt. She just mentioned that her bed is super king sized! I know I could make her a smaller lap quilt but I guessed this is the only quilt I will be making her for a while and I know she would really like one for her bed.
I have plenty of time to work on this one but thought I should get planning. I am still thinking of ideas and am guessing it will be a Quilt As You Go given the size of it. So far I am thinking of this one or this one or maybe I will use my Swoon pattern from Camille.
And finally I am cutting into this fabulous stack. I will be back on Sunday with my plans for it which include my first giveaway.
