Works in progress
I have been a busy busy beaver! I made this Winnie the Pooh top today. I work with a man who's wife is expecting their first baby. They are decorating the nursery in WTP. So I just whipped this up! They know that they are having a girl, hence the pink and purple. I found a fabulous orange dot flannel for the back too. I even managed to piece it so I could use it. Every bit of this quilt was made using stash fabric, even the batting and the backing. I was really happy about that. Not much of the purple and the orange left that I used for the borders.
The next picture if of some focus fabric I felt compelled to buy recently. I had no idea why but I know now. I was invited to a baby shower last weekend but was unable to attend. A friend is adopting a 2 year old boy sometime in August. I think this will make the perfect little boy quilt, don't you? I got the coordinating dot too. I *think* I may make focus squares of the bear fabric and then using the dots make nine patches to go around those. I have a lot of the colours from the bear fabric to use in the nine patch. I'm not certain yet. I will look through some old magazines and books tonight to try to make a plan.
Those pesky "M"s are still waiting to be appliqued and the rest of the stars and rails cut for that U of M quilt, but starting a new project is so much more fun!
