Color Me Happy!

My nephew is due to join this world in a few weeks.  It was about time to finish up some of the projects that I have in mind for the sweet boy and his momma.  First up were these burp cloths.  The pattern is a free one from Cloud 9 Fabrics.  There is no theme or color picked out yet so I did a little bit of everything.  Fun cotton prints on one side and soft flannel on the other.  So easy to put together and oh so useful.Then I finished (basted, quilted, and bound) the Crayola play quilt.  It so colorful and bright with super soft and cozy Minky on the back.The triangles on both the front and the back are the offcuts from the X blocks.  I randomly sewed them into pinwheels.  I hated to see them all go to waste so I used them throughout the quilt top and back.  I really like the look it created.It was so dark with just the green print that I added the low volume white blocks to lighten it up.  And I bought up every bit I could find of the x-plus fabric from the Best Day Ever line.  It’s such a great fabric for all the kids quilts that I’ll be making in the next few years.  And, I am now all out of the schoolhouse chalkboard fabric and can’t find it anywhere.  It was one on my favorites!

I echo quilted around each X and added vertical and horizontal lines every 2 1/2 inches.  Such great texture was created especially on that fabulous Minky!  It’s such a fun and soft quilt.The deep blue binding framed the whole piece perfectly!

Now I’m tackling my very first Divided Basket by Noodlehead.  Let’s see how much more baby decor and quilts I can get done before the baby arrives.  Time is a tickin…………
