I was so excited when my friend Bernie asked me to create a Blogger Bundle from her shop. As a quilt blogger there's been a tiny voice in the back of my head whenever I've seen other blogger bundles that it would be so much fun to put one together.

I set out to shop for my fabrics in Bernie's lovely fabric shop, Needle & Foot, Fine Fabrics. There are a lot of great prints to choose from like these adorable frogs and this fun rainbow confetti. And my daughter would love these sassy cats. In the end I decided on a more versatile palette and stuck true to my fabric preferences with a bundle of blenders!

I changed up one of my favorite palettes to include a beautiful, sunny yellow.

I love the geometric lines of the navy combined with the circular patterns on the other fabrics. Left to right, they are Dots in Grey, Sashiko Florette in Teal, Terra Firma in Sunlit, Bubble Dot in Teal/Aqua, and Atomic Web in Blue.

I paired the bundle with Kona Pewter and designed this block. This is the first of four 16" blocks to turn my bundle into a baby quilt. Stay tuned for more!

Free Motion Quilting

This week I finished the quilting on the light yellow/orange quadrant of my Star Light Star Dark quilt. Then I set it aside in favor of finishing my other two baby quilt gifts so I could deliver them.  Here's what Star Light Star Dark looks like at the moment.



Then I went on to finish two baby quilts that I shared about in recent posts: Caterpillar Fizz and Hummingbirds. Hummingbirds is already being enjoyed by the baby girl who it was give to and Zoom Zoom, which I finished last week, has gone to her big brother. I didn't end up seeing the third recipient as I expected I would, so Caterpillar Fizz will be delivered in the next week or so. Here's the pile of those quilts all pre-washed and ready to give.


Bee Blocks

It's a new month, so I have two new bee blocks to make. The pick for my do. Good Stitches group is improv curves in a very Fall color palette. I chose a couple beautiful Alison Glass fabrics to go with my neutrals.

The inspiration for the Quatrefoil blocks we're making for my Bee Hive group is water lilies. I may tweak my palette, but my initial fabric pull features more Alison Glass fabric (I just noticed that! I really love her fabric.). I'm planning a purple flower with orange and yellow center.


La Passacaglia

I made a bit of progress on my La Passacaglia project. I'll tell you, I'm not loving basting the tiny triangles. And there are 50 of them in this rosette. Please, nobody tell me how many of them are in the entire quilt. That said, once I managed to baste them, it was super quick to piece the stars together. Now to baste the other 40 triangles. ;-)


Thanks for visiting! I'm linking up to Midweek Makers and Needle and Thread Thursday.
