|#2 Fabric: Moda Vintage Modern, Moda Bella Solids Snow, Heidi Grace Birdhouse Poppies. Pattern based off of this.|
Of course calling this one of my finished tops for 2014 is kind of misleading because I'm pretty sure all I did two the top this year was add the poppy border. Quilt top number three is a wholesale this year project though. I have had the fabrics for a million years just because I liked them. When Calder realized his sizer was getting number two he declared this one to be his. Ok, sure.
I bought the fabrics as remnants so long ago that I have no clue what they are. I really wish I could find out though, especially the the grey one with all the animals. It's got deer, and turtles and bears and foxes and spike weasels, extremely cute and I'd like to find more. I designed that pattern myself which I am kind of proud of. I am call it Frames.
Quilt top number four is supposed to be for my mother but then my BFF had to go and get preggers so mom's is on hold again. (Next, I swear!) As my gift, I am making them a big ass quilt for the bebeh out of some fabric that I have been coveting FOREVER. I bought a real quilt pattern for this project and then proceed to change all the sizes to better feature the awesome prints. I had to draw the whole thing out anyways.

So then there is number five (Did I say next, mom? I meant first of 2015!) I "accidentally" ordered much more of the Charley Harper than I needed and had enough to make a second quilt to keep for myself. Something nice to keep me warm while I take pictures of many of these exact birds. I am once again using blogs to help with my pattern choice, getting the basic idea here and here.
But right now, nothing is getting done because I have a Halloween costume to finish. Not for Calder or Wren who told me specifically they wanted ones from the store but for me. I haven't had a new one in a couple of years and I am super excited even though it very may well look like crap because I have zero experience sewing stretch fabrics. I can't wait to get back to my pretty cottons.
