Paper pieced star

This is a customers wall hanging. I always take a picture of the quilt and doodle on it until I come up with a design for the top to show the customer.

This is the design I came up with for this top and the customer liked it. She wanted a little more quilting in the center star so if you look closely at the center I added some more swirls to the finished top (if you click on the picture it should enlarge for you).

This is the finished top.

This is the back of the quilt.

Receiving Quilt?

I made this small quilt the same way as I did the receiving blankets I just added batting and a quick stipple for quilting. Super quick quilt. The bright Pink is Minkee so the quilt is very soft.

Project Improv - Blocks

I started my test blocks. I have two completed and the others as you can see are in the works on the design board. I'm calling these my test blocks since I didn't use the fabrics I bought. This fabric came from stash left over from some bags I made. I love these fabrics and I think I really like the blocks so far too. I'm planning on making a baby quilt for my project. What are you planning for your project?

Project Improv - Colors

I have a start on my fabric selections. Yeah!! I went with the blue and green blocks. What do you think? I am going to have to make a trip to the quilt store to get some solids to go with these. Don't you just hate it when that happens? Unlike some of you (probable must of you) I don't have a huge stash to pick from but I'm working on correcting that situation. Do you have your fabrics picked yet?
