I had two projects to work on this weekend and funny enough they both used the same color families: coral and blue.
First came my September do. Good Stitches blocks. We were asked to make Patchwork Chevron Blocks using this Moda Bakeshop tutorial from Jeni Baker of In Color Order.
These blocks are each 12" square so this will be a huge, fun chevron quilt top :o) I'm really liking the coral, navy, and gray color combination Kim wanted us to use.
Next up is a shop sample (my first!) for my local quilt shop, The Scrappy Apple. My friend, Kelley, asked me if I could make the sample top using Galaxy, a Villa Rosa Designs pattern.
Gallaxy is super fast to make up using one charm pack and yardage. The fabric line in this quilt is Figures by Brigitte Heitland for ZEN CHIC for Moda. This fabric line has some great prints in it!
If you've never seen Rosecards (pattern cards) by Pat Fryer for Villa Rosa Designs they are definitely worth looking for. Rosecards are the size of a standard postcard and feature quick, easy patterns for quilts and other projects that often use precuts.
It was a super productive weekend in the sewing room! I'd love to hear what you worked on this weekend :o)
