There was a slight overcast and it was a little windy. I made my poor husband stand on our back porch holding it until I could get a good shot! I know I had told you guys that I was going to expand the pattern and make it 20 blocks instead of 12. But as I saw this coming along, I decided that 12 blocks was the perfect size for a lap quilt on my sofa. Here are the deets:
Fabric: Momo for Moda "Just Wing It" collection for the blocks and Kona Solid- Snow for the sashing
Pattern: Spring Fling Baby Quilt by Cluck Cluck Sew
Allison has a lot of awesome quilt patterns that are incredibly simple and the instructions are so detailed. This is my first quilt and I really recomment this pattern for beginners. It is so basic and still looks beautiful! Can't wait to finish the entire quilt. Do you think I should use a solid for the backing or one of the all over prints from the collection? I'm still undecided about that but I think I see some aqua binding in my future!
I had so much of this fabric left, I made a few make up bags. The majority of your comments liked the boxed corners best so that's what I made.
These bags are slightly larger than the last ones I made. They are about 9" by 8". I used contrasting fabrics for the base and lining of the bags. The zippers also add another burst of color. They are all lined with fusible interfacing.
I've already added all three of these make up bags to my etsy shop. Go take a look!
Now I mentioned a giveaway...
