Oh Deer!) is done... only I've not been able to get out and give it a proper photo shoot... you'll just have to wait a little longer for that finish. I have a plan in mind and just can't bring myself to abandon it for another sad set of pics taken in my backyard.... which at the moment is taking on a lovely winter wonderland look. Ack! Is it not March 22nd?!

So, my second Library Project quilt is a little different. It's a pattern I found a while back on a lovely blog called Obsessive Crafting Disorder. I was sure that J-boy would absolutely LOVE this one! I purchased the pattern a with a plan to make it for him for Christmas next year. Special, but with a purpose.... that's what I need right now!
The red is Sketch from Timeless Treasures and the black is Dazzle from Robert Kaufman (available in a jillion and one colours... oh no.) The blues are a little trickier. All three are Robert Kaufman. The only trouble is that I bought such small pieces I didn't get any selvage with names!
Last month, I also snagged these from Mad About Patchwork.
That's Pearl Bracelet in Anchor, Remix Ovals in Red, and Oval Elements in Sapphire.
These, in addition to some other reds from my stash and a pile of Kona White, will give me a good start on J-boy's next quilt. He's only got one and really "needs" one for snuggling up on the couch. I'm still trying to decide whether to use the aqua border called for in the pattern or switch it up to reflect J-boy's favourite team's colours. I've already made one departure in that the pattern calls for a large amount of navy and I've gone with the black Dazzle instead.
I'm doing a double link-up here and hooking up with Adrienne over at Chezzetcook Modern Quilts for this month's Library Project Link-up as well as with Work in Progress Girl for Molli Sparkles' usual Sunday Stash (since I really did buy some fabric this week!)
Tomorrow, the cutting begins!
P.S. And I went to our Maritime Modern Quilt Guild Sew In this week-end! Leigh Anne made it all the way from PEI and treated us to some awesome door prizes from her Etsy shop Ella's Cottage. I snagged this 8 piece FQ pack of Modas.
Is your LQS Avonport? I miss that place SO MUCH. I didn't know how good I had it until I left NS.ReplyDelete
My LQS is actually Atlantic Fabrics, just minutes from my home. I do get to Avonport, but only occasionally. I really need to have a plan in mind if I'm going to make the drive... but it's always fun when I get there!Delete
I love Avonport! It's 2 hours and a bit away from me so sometimes a few of us will make a "fabric shopping trip" and drive to Avonport, Halifax and then come back around Bridgewater and stop at Atlantic Fabrics. It's quite fun on a nice spring day :)Delete
Love that hockey quilt! And I love those Remix Ovals...I should probably get those in every colour they make!ReplyDelete
Love Oh Dear! And I just purchased some purple Dazzle a few days ago. Just love it!ReplyDelete
Okay now I have to find Cameras in parchment. Great bunch of fabrics love all the cheery spring colors.ReplyDelete
perfectly within the rules to change up your TLP picks! I hate too many rules. How fun was all of that fabric yesterday weeeee is right!ReplyDelete
Great fabrics all around! My local shops don't have many modern fabrics, so it's such a surprise when I find one.ReplyDelete
So many lovely fabrics!ReplyDelete
Is that Dazzle fabric sparkly or is it just the way the white is printed on that makes it look like it dazzles? It looks pretty great, anyway. And that stripey sparkly looking blue too.ReplyDelete
I'm not big on hockey, but what a great quilt for like... 90% of the people I know :D
Great choice - love that quilt and your fabricrs picks!ReplyDelete
Wow, score on all those fabrics!ReplyDelete
And i was positive that i was going to make my brother in law the Dear quilt, but after seeing the hockey quilt i may have to go with it! Can't wait to see yours!
How is that hockey quilt coming along??ReplyDelete
Oh, my, oh my... that hockey quilt... is that for me??? oh, I guess my name is not J-boy, so I have my answer. Love love love love. can't wait to see it!ReplyDelete
At last a real boy quilt! All those fabrics look wonderful! Lucky girl!ReplyDelete
