Random

A few quilt tops. I think the theme this weekend was "random". For the most part the pieces in these quilts were laid out randomly, which made for a fun laid-back time with them!

I'd be working on them now but the new sewing machine is not working ... I'm not happy, in fact I'm pretty ticked off. I have to drop it off tomorrow and won't have it back for a week or so. Not happy.

The last charm pack of April Cornell Sunshine. The back will be bright yellow and the binding will be blue.

The kids went through the small scraps bags and cut the pieces into 2.5" strips, whatever they handed me was what I sewed, following this method. The brown piece 5 rows up is an oops though ... it was actually part of the binding for a different quilt that got too close to the scrap pile ... of course it's the last of that fabric so now I'll have to come up with a completely different binding for that quilt ... oh well!

Part of an Amy Butler charm pack, alternated with white flannel left over from the girls quilts. The binding and back will also be Amy Butler, I believe.

Very random disappearing nine-patch quilt top, I love this one! The binding is going to be blue with a little bit of flowers and the back is yellow butterflies.
