It’s my first Random Roundup post of the year and I’m excited!
Table Runner -take 2:
My table runner that turned into a quilt top is still in the works. It’s a bit long and skinny so I need to figure out what to add to the sides. That means that I still needed a new table runner. I went perusing through my charm pack box and came across this sweet one that would be perfect for a spring themed runner. It’s Paradiso by Kate Spain and the colors are just so springlike and pretty. I had to match it with this fabulous grey print from the Modern Background Ink line by Zen Chic. The colors just pop against it. Here’s what I came up with – horizontal squares centered with vertical squares on the sides. I really like the way it flows. The intentional imperfection makes me happy. I need to decide how to bind it. I’m thinking of doing a scrappy binding with these 4 prints. The top three were recently acquired by one of my guild mates during a sale at Fabric.com. She was kind enough to share. 😊 I hope to have this finished before this weekend.
Disney Mini Quilt Swap:
I started working on the Mini quilt that I am making for the Disney Mini Quilt Swap. My partner mentioned The Aristocats as being one of her favorite Disney films. I took off from there and decided that The Kittens pattern by Elizabeth Hartman would be perfect to use for the kittens from that film. This is a sneak peek of Marie.
I appliquèd the bow on her ears and it is the perfect touch to really bring out Miss Marie.
Today I received this fabulous package from Quilters Square that should give me enough white with grey to complete the original table runner/quilt. And I couldn’t pass up this creepy yet cool skull fabric to put on something for my bestie. The skulls are a bit bigger than I anticipated but they will make a great bag lining or quilt back. I’ll have to see what she may want me to make for her using this awesomeness.
I also received some wide backing fabric so I can hopefully finish my Wavelength quilt. I think I will make that my February goal. What are your quilty goals for the month?
