Yesterday I started a baby quilt for my daughter to take to a baby shower on Saturday (yes, I know...I was cutting it close)! I was actually planning on a simple design, but then I decided to use Heather's new book and ruler as a basis for my quilt (I kind of combined two of her designs from the book). I wish I had a really good photo of this quilt...but the best photos are ones from my phone.
The quilt is actually for a baby girl, but the Mom-to-be isn't a fan of pink and requested aqua and grey. I used Moda Bella Ivory along with some of my Bunny Hill fabric stash and one print from Emily Taylor's Verona. Hopefully I can get a better photo to share after it has been quilted.
Since it's a "What I'm Working on Wednesday" post I have to mention that I love my new Olfa Splash cutter. There is something about the shape of this that I love more than any other 45mm cutter I've used. I've been using this constantly since it arrived.
I also finished up my "Gentle Art" Schnibble...such a fun quilt to make!
My quilt uses Happy Go Lucky and Scrumptious (the binding is the green scallop from Happy Go Lucky) and is already hanging on the wall in my sewing room!
