I'm just sewing out my stress.

Another Baby Quilt January 2, 2011

A few months ago I wrote about the fabric that I picked up in NYC.  Here is what was inspired.

Colors are black, white and green.

The backing fabric is from the fabric district in NYC. Saw it and fell in love. Designed the quilt while on the train to Coney Island on the 4th of July.

Here’s to hoping this new quilt finds a loving home.

Moda Eva is one of my favorite fabric lines.  It’s girly and offers great shades of purple, green, and pink.  Paisley, swirls, peacocks, polka dots, circles, and vines. 

I’ve made potholders and quilts from this great line. 

On the quilt I was really unsure what to do with it.  Took a few different layouts on the design wall.  The best layout is variegating the fabric from darkest to lightest.  I think it turned out pretty well.

I LOVE making baby quilts.  A very good family friend asked me to create a signature square quilt for the arrival of her grand daughter.  She wanted greens and pinks.  With this quilt I have officially gone through my bright pink fabric stash. 

I started with a 1.5″ and 2.5″ strips of a variety of fabrics.  Each square was completely different. 

After cutting.

Needless to say grandma was happy with the end result.

Congrats!!!!

This week has been awesome.  I started a new job and I’m doing some off hours for training.  The best part is in two weeks I’ll be working 3pm-11pm so I can spend my mornings sewing.

Here is what I have been working to finalize all this week:

Custom Baby Quilt

I have everything ready to go on a couple more quilts, just need to sit down and do them.  I don’t have three days this week to just sit and sew.
