Goal for March: Finish the all hands on deck quilt
This year is flying right by. I am two for two on completing my January and February goals. March is my most ambitious goal yet. So far I have...
Ze Fabrics. I am making a twin sized jungle paths quilt for a friend who is expecting her first baby very, very soon. This is a commissioned piece so she has been working with me along the way to pick out the pattern and fabrics. It has been a blast involving someone else in the design process. The pattern is designed by SewCraftyJess. I have used it before for the Simpatico Monsterz baby quilt. The center fabrics will be a combination of the All Hands on Deck blue/green colorway and fabrics collected from her friends and families.
The "L" shaped blocks will be in various navy fabrics color weave (P&B textiles), medium chevron (Riley Blake), Ring toss in nayv (metro living) and the fleet (Seven Seas from Cloud 9 - glad I snagged this when I did because they are now out of print) The sashing is Kona ash.
Seriously adorable whales and sails.
Cut the fabrics
Started the blocks
I am still in the midst of assembling the last two pieces for the L-block assembly style. But I couldn't resist finishing just one block...
Left to do: Piece the blocks, assemble the top, assemble the back, quilt and bind. Let's get crackin.'
Linking up with freshly pieced on this wonderful WIP Wednesday and with LYoF March goal setting.
