I continually jump from project to project, depending on my mood and inspiration and the enjoyment never seems to fail. I may finish a UFO, or start a new project...every day is a mystery. Recently I finished my Super Nova Scotia quilt, a cuddle quilt I started a year ago following a free quiltalong series that had been hosted by designer Lee Heinrich in 2011. She created the Supernova block and blogs at Freshly Pieced HERE. She has since changed her blog host and I wasn't able to find the directions with the pictures to link for you. If you are interested in the pattern, you may have to do some more searching of her blog or contact her directly.
The quilt is primarily made from Kaffe Fasset fabrics that I had been saving for awhile.
I used an edge to edge loop de loop quilting pattern, bound it with a scrappy binding, and the 60" x 60" quilt is now a finish. You can read more about this quilt HERE.
Rolling this quilt top made it even more appealing to me. Doesn't take much space this way!
After playing with such bright colours, I decided to keep on the same wavelength and start another bright baby quilt. Remember my first baby whale quilt? You can read about this pattern HERE. I knew I'd make another one of these. It's just so much fun to see each whale go from pieces of fabric to these little guys. In a day, I can take a quilt from cutting fabrics to sandwiching it, so this one is now ready to quilt. I plan to stitch some wavy quilting from side to side like I did on the other.
Yesterday I quilted the grid pattern and today I will do the quilting on the diagonal. The colours are not as bright as the first two quilts, but those fabrics sure are cozy!
It's a great day for quilting!
