Finishing up more UFO's. This is from a Craftsy class, the 2012 block of the month. I was using a Kaffe Fassett fat quarter bundle for the fabric, along with a tone on tone white for the background color. I had two blocks left when I was down to tiny scraps and had to order more fabric. Setting it to the side while I waited was how this quilt ended up in 'the pile' of unfinished quilts. I plan to piece the back in more of a modern style using my leftover pieces. This one I don't even need to plan how to quilt. Craftsy also has a class taught by Leah Day on how to quilt a sampler and more specifically this quilt. I really admire Leah Day and think I will learn a lot from this class.
Here is another unfinished project.
I started this one at a retreat with Minnesota Contemporary Quilters. I set it aside while trying to decide whether to keep it as a lap quilt or add a little fabric to at least make it fit a twin bed. I decided last week when I pulled it out of 'the pile,' to make it a little bigger. I wasn't sure if I would still be able to find the same fabric but luckily I knew the name of the fabric line, Urban Couture by Basic Grey for Moda. I put it in a search engine and found exactly what I needed. I ordered on Thursday and had the fabric by Saturday! Amazing service! Thank you to Nana's House Quilt Shop in Nashville.
After I finish piecing these two, fronts and backs, I am excited to start my next project. I washed and pressed all the fabric so, I am ready to go. This is for the Craftsy 2014 block of the month on color theory. Aren't these fabrics amazing.
