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?!
|Whilst still in progress....
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.
