Another small quilt

IMG_2860This 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.
