Happy 2011! This will be the year I actually post to my blog on a regular basis (really!). I've set a personal challenge for myself to create at least one new item per week in 2011 - I mostly plan/hope that these are quilt tops, but new product ideas will likely be thrown in the mix as well.
I'll just start out by saying I have enough fabric to open my own store . . . I have more than a few boxes/piles/stashes of fabrics that I have bought with grand plans to sew into a particular quilt or project.
My first challenge project of 2011 was to sew up these cute prints into a quilt top - they've been cut and sitting on my sewing shelf for OVER a year now. . . no more!
This is a very simple design for using up small pieces of fabrics, and for combining lots of prints - sometimes called a chinese coin design. This quilt top features a variety of prints in pinks, yellows and blues and fabrics from Heather Bailey, some cute Japanese prints and more. Crib size quilt - I plan to back it with a cute polka dot print and do some simple straight line quilting on it.
