I ordered some fabric on line last week, to make a couple of girl quilts. I was hoping that one would come today and it did. It is, in fact, pink elephants -- the pink version of the blue elephants from my blue elephant quilt (another creative name).
Here is the blue elephant quilt, which I love. I plan to make something similar with the pink. Something simple.
Next, my dear friend Amanda made a quilt for her little boy. Here's a picture of the finished top. Isn't it great!! She is one of the people who helped me get started with quilting -- she has a great eye for colors and patterns! Hopefully she'll forgive me for stealing the picture from facebook.
Anyway, she gave me her leftovers from this quilt. I didn't take a picture of all the scraps but I can't wait to figure out what to do with them.
The other fabric I ordered online was a jelly roll of Simply Style by V and Co. I had seen this jelly roll quilt and I had to have it. I am going to be totally unoriginal and make one like it. When I looked today to see when it was going to be delivered, the shop I bought it from was on vacation. Boo hoo. I was upset that it would be a while before it would come. I resigned myself to waiting. However, when I came home today, this is what I found!! So very exciting.
I finished making the blocks for my rainbow menagerie or whatever it will be called. Now I need to sew the blocks together. Here's the first layout I tried. I'll try some other layouts later this week and decide which way to go.
I just love the reverse blocks.
All in all, a pretty good sewing/fabric kind of day.
