More WIP

Two very different small quilt tops. Both meaure about 40" by 40-45".

The first is made from Chez Moi fabrics. I can't take any credit for this design, though I love it ... I found this post last night by All This By Hand and was sold immediately ... so much so that I have another, similar quilt top in the works right now.

The second is more of a folk art looking quilt, based on the center floral fabric, which I've been holding onto wondering when I'd find a great use for it. This quilt scared me a little, that's a lot of color and pattern, but I've gotten used to it and now I really like it. I'm tempted to make it bigger, more of a twin sized quilt by adding a few more rows. Any thoughts?

I got the idea behind this one from the book Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts. The most interesting part of making this top was seeing how much it changed with the addition of each fabric.

  3. I love squares and sashing. It is clean looking and with the fabric being kind of modern it gives it an artistic flair.
