Beloved Two

finally! here's Beloved #2. i started this whole project back in january and i finally finished #2 and both have now been mailed to Pascha who heads up this project. (just finding a box that would fit two quilts and going to the post office took a few weeks!)

i love the bright colors in this quilt. back in the day, these saturated colors were the ones i collected but i have to admit, they look a little 90's to me now--i'm more into the kaffe fassett brights currently (though in 10 years, they'll look a little '00 to me :-)

the triangles are almost all from the Lakehouse Baskets quilt. and the white is from my stash. the back is fleece--though if i make more of these quilts (and i would like to), then i'll have to check in with Pascha about that--these quilts are going to SE Asia and i think fleece might be a bit too warm.

i would like to continue to make more of these quilts --maybe one for every 2-3 quilts i make for myself?...

More Blocks

i was bummed--i had finished my jelly roll sampler block #7 in time but forgot to upload it in time for the drawing--oh well, next time. this photo is too dark but doing the auto brightening makes the colors completely untrue.

this is block #8. you should check out the flickr group --this block in particular looks completely different with each fabric choices--pretty amazing.

the latest in my own BOM. i'm really enjoying making these sampler quilts--making one block at a time is time-consuming but i'm don't feel overwhelmed in making these intricate blocks either.

the kids have started summer vacation but this week they're in VBS in the morning (truly a hallelujah is needed!) so lots of sewing going on! i'll try to take some photos soon.
