Here is what I have been working on. A co-worker is expecting twin girls in early October/late September. Her nursery is white with little pops of colour. I have been dying to try Owen's Olivia's tutorial for a wonky star and this seemed like the perfect project!
I then went through my stash and found my Wee Wander fat eighths and felt inspired. One girl twin will get a cool colourway and the other will get a warm colourway. I'm seriously crushing on the fabric.
|Wee Wander fat eighths. I also had to add in some C+S from my stash and some Lizzy House diamonds because some of the prints are too "white" to work against Kona White backgrounds (not enough contrast).|
|Right? This block? SO CUTE! (It is 12" square).|
|Cool trimmings all together.|
|There are some bold colours but overall it will be a soft look, I think.|
|I love when things work out.|
|Aren't these prints enchanting?|
|Won't this be a lovely palette for one of the girls?|

Going to be very pretty...isn't it great...your own room!!!!!ReplyDelete
Love the colors you chose. Wonky stars are so much fun. I'm sure she will love the baby quilts.ReplyDelete
Having a designated room is so nice, isn't it?! You twin baby quilts are going to be so cute!ReplyDelete
Looks fantastic! I'm dying to see your sewing room. A fan upstairs it totally necessary - I sympathize with the quilting in the heat. Stay cool1ReplyDelete
I see my picture taking of trimmings has gotten contagious. It always makes me feel a little better about throwing them away too! I love that you're co-ordinating the quilts for the girlies instead of matching them... does my twin mama heart good! Can't wait to see that lovely Wee Wander in the finished product.ReplyDelete
Glad to hear you are having fun in your new sewing room. I love having a dedicated space - you can just leave everything out.ReplyDelete
I think they are going to be really lovely quilts, despite all the trimming! Having a dedicated room is great, isn't it? My only problem with mine is that it's on the top floor of our 3 story house and I'm lazy!ReplyDelete
