I haven't joined in with Cat Patches NewFO challenge before, it kind of feels like enabling the enabler, plus I'm
lazy busy. But I actually know what I've been doing in the month of April, so I'm going to link up.
I started and finished this cute little baby quilt.
A little tidbit comes with this one. I laid the blocks out on my bed which is my design wall. I have a light aqua quilt on my bed and as soon as I saw the blocks with the aqua I knew the sashing had to be that color. Of course I didn't have that color in my stash and I don't have any quilt shops within two hours of me. No problem, I've been a Rit Dye girl for years, they've never let me down. They have the recipes for just about any color you can think of, so I went to Ritdye.com, found the right color and had a couple of yards of the right color in just a couple of hours. I always try to have plenty of white on hand.
This is also the quilt I was trying to use for my Free Motion Quilting Challenge, trying to combine the two, but it just wasn't working, nothing looked good. I went with the big spirals and really like the look.
I started this boy quilt, all that's left is the borders which will be the bright green and royal blue. I don't normally work with these primary colors, but I like it a lot. I've been trying to use up scraps, this definitely helped.
So there you have it, I think I've forgotten a few things from the beginning of the month, but oh well. I'll try to keep track for May.
Thanks for stopping by,
