Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

New Quilts in the Queue

Actually it is two new quilts.  My last post had me picking fabrics for a sampler quilt (Quilt #1). This is my final decision — but I haven’t started it since it was a crazy week at work and I never made it into my sewing room.  I was able to play a bit in EQ. I’ve designed a quilt for a wedding gift for my nephew and his wife.  They requested whites and creams with a hint of sea foam and lavender as shown in this color palette:

So Saturday I headed to Quilters Haven in Olathe,  Kansas to look for batiks.

I seldom buy fabric in one go for a quilt – especially if it is going to be scrappy, but that’s what I did.   So this is Quilt #2. But before I start cutting into the fabric I want to make certain I have the pattern correct – not to mention have a quilt I can practice my quilting on when I get that far.  So I pulled red, blue and neutral FQs from my stash to make some practice blocks. Thus Quilt #3 – although it’s the one that is currently being worked on.
