Play Time

I didn't get a whole lot done this week, but I did do something.  I played.

At the 2015 AQS quilt show in Chattanooga my friend, Denise, bought a "mystery" charm pack at the Missouri Star Quilt Company booth for $5.00.  Even though I was determined not to buy any fabric that year, she talked me into buying one, too.

We both ended up with identical fabric from the Disney/Pixar Finding Dory line.  Denise thought we should do a challenge and each make a baby quilt from our charm pack.  That's what I played with this week.  

I started by putting a sashing strip around each block, thinking I would only use orange and yellow.  

But, no -- that would be too boring.  You know -- not colorful enough!  With such busy prints, though, I thought it would be nice to use all solids for the sashing strips.  I don't have a lot of solids in my stash so I decided to pull a few prints and see if the backs of the fabrics would work.   Some of them did!  

I managed to get about half the blocks made.  Not too bad for a half day of playing.  At least it's something. 

Did I mention that Denise's quilt is already finished?  I have some catching up to do.

I'm linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Another week earning a Whoop Whoop!  Check out her site to see what others are accomplishing!


  1. Sandy, this is coming along beautifully. The solids frame the prints well and add a pop of color. This quilt will be one you love when you get through it. And good luck finding more time for sewing next week.

  2. I love solid frames to charm squares and bright patterns. Always looks geat

  3. So cute! This one will be so much fun for a little person :)

  4. That's going to be a fun and colorful quilt.

  5. I agree....this is a fun one! Enjoy making it!
