A special commissioned quilt for G’s baby niece. It took a while for me to put this together (due to work, health, etc) but after I got the fabrics cut, everything came together very easily. I really enjoyed working on this top. Now, I’m planning for the quilt back to work in a special border fabric which I love very much. Stay tuned!
This mish-mash-moo quilt is specially commissioned by Mama G, for her own WIP little one 😉 She wanted a scrappy quilt and she liked what she saw at Willy-Nilly’s. Although many crafty bloggers only offer sneak peeks to their works before giving to the recipients, I believe I do need some WIP approvals as I go along for this commissioned quilt!
So, I’m done sewing up the Half-Square-Triangle blocks, cutting, ironing and squaring the blocks. It is layout time and I had so much fun! Initially, there was some trouble putting up some blocks because the contrast in values are not that great. But after putting it up on the layout wall, and taking a couple of pictures of it, I think the magic is working!
So, is this a pass or a ‘try again’? I’m rather tempted to toss out a couple of ‘non-contrasty’ blocks. But I’m trying hard to switch some around to blend things in a bit better.
I had a good time yesterday pulling out fabrics out of the tubs for a special project. I love looking at them, touching them and recalling where/when I bought them, etc. The stash has grown quite a bit in these 2 years. Thanks to international shipping and thanks to quilt/sewing books that inspire me to start on ‘future projects’ :p
Half way done (cutting only). I’m loving this project – cutting into every piece of fabric I have for a scrappy look, no colours in mind, same dimension for every single piece (5″ charm), and taking my time with it 🙂 Seems like I’m getting out of my quilting funk! 😉
