Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, aunts, stepmoms, grandmothers, dog moms, cat moms, and dads that are also moms. We all have a big part to play in the lives of others as they journey through this crazy world.
I also finished up this mini for a swap that my guild is hosting.We are swapping with members of 3 other modern quilt guilds in our state. They listed 3 aspects of modern quilting that they liked and we were to incorporate those items into our mini. I love what I came up with. It was a bit of a challenge but I flew through it once I came up with an idea.My partner likes bright colors so I made sure to use them. I picked up a Kaffe Fassett charm pack and used those for the back. You can’t get much brighter than Kaffe, even in the Cool color story.I bound it in the background fabric (Modern Background Ink – Stitched Circles Graphite) but wanted a pop of color on one side and that orange/yellow fabric did exactly that. I hope my partner enjoys it.
I’m curbing my fabric spending a bit but did pick up a few things recently.Missouri Star had a Daily Deal with the Kona Snow charm pack not too long ago and I couldn’t pass up a charm pack of For You from Zen Chic.The Mama Said Sew Volume II line is fabulous and this yardage ended up in my cart as well. I’m a sucker for a good text fabric. I also got some cuddled charm packs that I will use in some chrIty baby quilts. One of those may be coming up next….
