I've gotten sidetracked by a few things, but my June goal is slowly getting there. I was nearly finished appliqueing some blue star blocks when I decided to make it my June goal to turn them into a donation quilt. I started making nine-patches for the alternate blocks, but got tired of that, so I ended up making a second kind, too. Then somewhere along the way I realized I was using two different shades of gray. It's a scrappy quilt, though, right?
The blocks look good together .....
..... and I was able to pull the perfect backing fabric from my stash. It's the same fabric I used for the background in Natalie's quilt - "Essentials" by Wilmington Prints.
That project is set aside for now. My daughter-in-law asked me to make a quilt for her friend's twin grand-daughters. I was pretty excited to be asked to make such a special quilt, and maybe a little excited to buy something new and fun to work with. I found this collection called "Seashore Drive" by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda Fabrics. It was hard to pick out only ten of them. I fell in love with all the prints in the line.
I can't get away from those Half Square Triangles, can I?
I love your scrappy blues and greens in the stars and 9 patches! That's going to be a pretty quilt!
I for one can't wait to see it. I love half-square triangles!
