This top is a version of one I saw at Gretchen’s Little Corner last week. Gretchen made hers from a pattern she got from the blog Toefeather. I changed the center block from plain to one that is “inside out”. I ran out of green, because I got carried away and cut too many 2 1/2 inch squares. The other fabric is called “Sprockets”, and its 60 inches wide, a convenient size for the backing. It will be a colorful quilty gift for my DH’s associate, who’s baby boy is due next month.
I have been stitching away on my Gravity Quilt. I’m about half way done, these large quilts always take more time to do than I think they will. I’m not doing anything dense or any type of pebbling or micro-quilting. I have been using lots of digital designs and practicing on using the software to place them in the diamonds on the quilt. Yesterday I had to redo one three times.
I bought some things from Craftsy a few weeks ago, and they included a free 5″ charm pack. I thought I would try it out as a quilt I recently saw on Instagram. I’m not really excited about the results.
It’s kinda blah, like a rainy day. I bought another charm pack and a yard of the aqua flora print. I think if I do another round of squares and a bright aqua border it may perk it up, or not. Regardless, I’m in for less than ten dollars in materials and a few hours of my time.
Linking up with Judy at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts for Design Wall Monday.
