It's been a very productive sewing week, with a good bit to show on a few projects!
I finished up my Hope Valley Circles doll quilt for DQS 10! I posted about it here. We had a pretty quiet weekend around here, so I had the majority of both Saturday AND Sunday to do as I pleased (which means play in my sewing room!) I really enjoyed working on this project, and picked up a few new skills along the way.
Scrap Bin Quilt
I finished up the color scrappy blocks for my scrappy quilt! I was a little unsure of my choice of colors, but now seeing all the blocks together, I'm really liking it! I'm not sure how I want to proceed from here...for some reason I'm just not all that fond of square quilts (aside from baby quilts that is), so I was thinking of making 4 more blocks and doing them in shades of greys/black prints to kind of neutralize the brightness. Although as I'm looking at it, maybe I should just embrace the brightness and make 4 more blocks, but in colors I've already used? What say you oh wise bloggy friends??
Central Park Squared baby quilt
This is my boy version using mostly Central Park in the green/blue/orange color ways and the animal prints, with a few Hope Valley prints thrown in there as well.
This is the first time I've ever set charm squares on point, and I can't believe what a different look it gives the quilt! I really like how these colors work together, so pretty and calming, yet "boyish" too.
