I can't believe how quickly you can make blocks when you have bought yardage!! My normal practice is to make do and cobble together bits and pieces but yesterday I bought some fabric and it makes the process so much easier and quicker.
I love the polaroid quilts I have seen on the WWW and IG and decided to make one as a cot quilt. For the practice ones I used a grey as a surround and whilst I love this I didn't think it was best suited to a cot quilt. Instead I have chosen Moda Grunge Pool in Aqua. I hadn't seen any Grunge fabric in real life until yesterday when I saw the whole range. They are gorgeous! It also co-ordinates with the some of the colours in the backing fabric (there's a snippet in the corner there!), which may also have an accent border on the front.
I have also been working on my daughter's quilt, which is needs a border top and bottom and then some applique on the front. She is wanting to 'catify' her room so, of course, cats are going on the front of the quilt and the backing is all cats!
The other project which really should be taking priority, due to the shipping date being next week, is my Rainbow Mini Swap. I have been posting updates on Instagram but haven't said much about it here. The top is finished and has been on my frame for two days but I think I have Quilter's Block. Is there such a thing? I can picture it fully quilted in my head but I am not sure if I can produce my metal image in reality. I guess I just have to take the plunge and start ......
There are lots of other projects at various stages of completion but these are what I am physically working on right now. I like having multiple projects to chose from because you can do what you feel like at the time but ........ I don't seem to have had any finishes recently, which is always such a mental boost!
I am almost at 100 blog posts and it's my birthday week sooooooo I think a giveaway is in order. Be sure to pop back on Friday for my 100th post!
