My friend Sarah Ruiz at Saroy has a new pattern that she just released yesterday. I was able to test the pattern for her and make this vibrant version from the Sassafras Lane Foundation collection.
This is a super quick sew with numerous layout variations included in the pattern. And there are countless other options for arranging blocks. I chose an alternate layout for my blocks.
Hop over to Sarah's blog to see the numerous awesome tester versions of Shake and Bake or straight to Etsy to get your copy (on sale through Sunday, December 8).
I'm participating in the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge with Cheryl of muppin.com. And be sure to visit the other participating bloggers to see what they're sharing this month.
Last year, Bernie from Needle and Foot had a series of blogger bundles featuring fabrics from her shop. I curated this bundle of five fabrics to kickoff her series in January 2018, and in December I still had only made two of the four blocks I designed for my bundle.
I participated in Miss Love's Finishing School for Winter session in January 20 through March 16 of this year. We each identified eight projects for the eight weeks which we wanted to make progress on. I previously shared that I put my Swoon project in two of the slots. This baby quilt project was one of the other projects I identified that I successfully met the goal of progress which I'd set for myself, in this case two more blocks and a finished quilt top.
It's always exciting for me to move a project into the "finished quilt top" category, though they often get stuck there. How would you quilt this quilt?
The products featured in this post were given to me by Island Batik and Aurifil.
This month's Island Batik theme was Starstruck. We were tasked with creating anything featuring stars.
I opted to use my Victoria and Albert 10" stack to create simple, large scale sawtooth stars. This fabric collection is a lovely floral collection with a great variety of values. I split my 20 fabrics into lights and darks and pieced ten large blocks.
Nine of my blocks went into a lap size quilt top and the tenth block was quilted into a finished pillow.
Here's a bit of a closeup showing the four motifs of quilting (in four different Aurifil 50wt colors) I chose for the pillow.
I used a bit of leftover fabric from a different collection for the back of my pillow.
