Here is what I have been up to for the past week or two -
I finished this baby quilt for a soon to be delivered little boy. It is kind of big, but that is OK! More room to grow, right?! It is made from lots of different fabrics I had acquired from a couple swaps and some Riley Blake Ginghams and Chevrons I already had. The sashing is a gray Bella Solid, the backing is the aqua and navy Chevron print from Riley Blake and the binding is a red Bella Solid. I stippled this quilt with some gray Aurifil thread.
Over the long weekend, I was also able to quilt this New Wave Quilt made from Curious Nature by Parson Gray. I am about half way done hand stitching the binding to the back but forgot to take an updated picture.
I also started a new project a day or two ago. I am making two - yes two - twin quilts for my dear dear friends little girls room. She fell in love with the line of fabric, Vintage Modern by Bonnie & Camille so that is what the quilts will be made out of. I love that line too! The pattern I am following is called Box of Chocolates from the book Skip the Borders by Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts. I am excited about this project!
Finally, over the weekend, I repainted some old iron patio furniture I recently acquired from my parents. It was an old faded black color and now it is a pretty aqua color - aquatic mist from Lowe's to be exact. I am so pleased with this! I have two more chairs and a large table left to paint.
That is what I have been up to recently and can't wait to continue working on these projects....as well as the many older project just begging to be finished.
