baby fabric

I’m still working on about three other things, but a baby announcement means you stop and switch gears.  This baby is not going to be gender revealed.

Gasp!  Don’t they know how difficult it is for a quilter to not make a gender specific color scheme and matching label???

So I picked this as my focus fabric, and now I am trying to match up the green and orange and yellow to make a top.  Can you think of a good block that will showcase the animals?

You can visit their site at Quilters Depot.

If you look around the site long enough, you will find, there is a new part-time sales associate!  Squeal!  I can’t believe I am so lucky as to get to start working here with the best group of ladies and gents (Ahem) in town.  It’s my favorite store to sit-and-sew in, take reasonably priced classes with great instructors who focus on each student, and spend my extra cookie jar money at.  Now I get to share the love I have of the fabric and of quilting with everyone who comes in.  I am so blessed!

policeThere is just too much violence going on in the world, our country, and one of my favorite places.  Senseless killings, brutality, racism, I can’t begin to understand the whole story of any of these statistics.  I just know too many died this week.

He selected the fabrics, I added a choice of my own, and now I’ve begun.

Here’s the cutting done.  Large 6.5″ center blocks of the prints…

And the cornerstones and borders – an ombre I picked up for another project and didn’t use, but don’t have enough of for the entire quilt…do I add the solid yellow and red my son chose or buy more of the grey?

borders and corners

Now for the fun part.  Answer the above question for a chance to win my Star Wars scraps.  I have about 20 assorted charm squares (between 5″ and 6″ cut) of the four prints you see above. 

Winner chosen by random, entries until 7/15/16 midnight Eastern.  USA only please.
