Two more done!

This week has been a productive one for me! I got two orders finished and am starting on a third. I'm happy with how everything is finally coming together!

This little beauty is named Charlotte's Web. Charlotte is now 6 months old and a little terror by the sounds of things! She loves the wires to mommy & daddy's computers.

I'm having fun with pieced backs. This one was just a simple block pieced back, using the fabrics from the front of the quilt. I left the selvages intact & showing for a little fun. I used the Scarborough Fair line by Windham Fabrics. I don't usually stick with a single fabric line, but in this case I wanted the unified look. I love how it turned out.


Memories of Stage Fort Park was a challenge for me. I found a gorgeous piece of tonally dyed batik that just screamed out to be used for this quilt. I quilted it using a meandering pattern that imitates the breeze-driven waves on the surface of the water or in tall grass.

For the back I used some yardage I found at our local Ikea. It's a fun black & green on white print with birds, leaves, seed pods, & branches. It suits the theme perfectly, and I love how soft the fabric is. I never would have thought to shop there for fabrics!

Thanks for stopping by!
