Let’s Bee Social #73
Although my works in progress are all about solids lately, for those of you who prefer prints… Good news! There will be some projects in prints coming up soon. Did you see my Mother’s Day haul I shared in my Sunday Stash report? Some of those are destined to become the backings for upcoming quilts. But the first luscious pile I shared in that post is at the top of my list for what to do next. As soon as my current projects are complete, that is.
Another sure sign of Spring. Some dusting and rearranging of my sewing room has allowed me to accommodate more large storage bins. And now I have the ability to keep my WIP’s safe and sound – but not out of sight, out of mind – while I switch off to work on something else.
Rarely in the past have I been one to work on more than one project at a time. But this week I find myself working on a few wip’s. And enjoying the process. When making a whole lot of hst’s or repetitive blocks, it’s so nice to take a break and work on something else for a change.
I have been toying around with my Squirrel block designs. And came up with a ultra graphic baby quilt layout using Kona Black and Kona Coal squirrels. It’s called Squirrels in the Park and, when finished, the instructions will be added to the Erin’s Squirrels pattern introduced in this post.
Are you on Instagram? I posted the following work in progress shot last week.
My other project on the go…
Two-tone Little Bloom blocks made with – you guessed it! – Kona Cotton Solids. This pattern was previously made using prints and solids together. You can see the first Little Blooms quilt here. I wanted to make it again using only solids this time. And make a much larger version. More on the plans for those Little Blooms later this week.
Instagram is something relatively new to me. Since my daughter got an upgraded iphone, I inherited her old one and have been enjoying the IG online quilting community ever since. It’s so much fun to pop in throughout the day and see what everyone is sharing in ‘real time’. If you have an IG account, let me know in the comments or tag me online @sewfreshquilts. I would love to come and visit you on Instagram and see what you are up to!
Now Let’s PARTY!!!!
What’s new with you?
In case you missed it from Monday’s post…
Keep On Quilting On!
