New projects

Yes, I know I haven't finished my current project yet but my machine still isn't working so I started cutting out pieces for my next projects. Both my sisters in law are expecting babies in June and I want to make a small quilt for each bub. I like the look of those quilts that are plain square blocks separated by 4-patch blocks. I can't find any photos of what I'm thinking of even though I know I've seen them in the past. Here is a beautiful red and blue 9-patch that will give you an idea of what I am talking about.

I'm going to make one using cool toned fabrics and the other using warm toned fabrics with a black and cream fabric that I used in J's castle quilt to set off the colour.

I was chatting with G today about the flying geese quilt that she is patiently waiting for me to start for her and we found this photo that she loves. I am looking forward to going fabric shopping with her, she's such a darling little thing. I love the greens and yellows in this picture but I know we'll be coming home with plenty of pinks and purples. 6 1/2 year olds know what they like :-)

So, still no working machine but lot's of pretty pictures. I don't know the provenance of any of the photos I have put here if you know where they're from please let me know and I'll give credit where it's due.

I love 9patch quilts because there are so many ways of arranging them. The flying geese spread in very nice. I'll be watching to see what colors you chose.

Ooh I like that blue and red 9patch a lot!

Reminds me I must start stitching the flying geese for Campbell's quilt or it's never going to get made!
