There’s been a veritable baby boom among our friends lately, so I’ve put together a couple quilts as gifts. I don’t feel these are my best work — I’m not totally thrilled with the colour and print choices, but I was trying to make due with the fabric I had on hand to try to work down my stash; I have a lot of fabric right now but not always the best combinations of colours or patterns, which means having to make some sacrifices. Much like my yarn stashing habit, I have tended to buy fabric randomly and without a plan, and this has lead to issues with figuring out how to use the stuff up. I’m slowing working on improving these purchasing habits!
These are also far from my best photography, being hastily captured prior to packing up before running off to a baby shower.
I’ve got one more to pull together in the next month or so. I’m a bit more excited about the fabrics I have handy for this next one, so we’ll see how it shapes up. I have to figure out a pattern choice for the quilt top. The chevron pattern of this latest one — the predominantly orange and green one — I worked out myself, but I don’t want to do it again right away. I need something different to keep it interesting.
